REDUCED!!! 15 1/2" Genuine BONA ALLEN Ranch Saddle, Buford, GA made!
REDUCED to $300- Need to sell!
This listing is for a Buford, Georgia made BONA ALLEN Ranch Saddle- totally hand-made by a truly skilled saddle maker- NOT PRODUCTION JUNK THAT WE TYPICALLY SEE TODAY. The saddle isn't marked, but most BAs weren't. However, I'm 100 % sure it's a BA- no doubt about it, ( I can tell from the tooling pattern, stitching in the padded seat, and pattern shapes, etc.).The saddle is actually 16" from the base of the horn to the front edge of the cantle, but I'll call it a 15 1/2" to be safe. It's very roomy in the seat. The swells are 13 1/2" wide, and the gullet is about 6 1/2", like a semi bar spread. It has a rock solid bull hide wrapped wood tree. The full floral carving is hand-set, NOT embossed, and the leather is in very good, supple condition, considering it age more especially. I've owned countless BAs, and this is the nicest original I've ever seen. I'm selling it for a friend, but the saddle is on my premises. The fleece shows some age, but I would not replace it yet as the saddle will work fine with a pad or blanket. When this saddle was made, it was the "top-shelf" saddle Bona Allen made. It has the original back billets, but no back girth. The stirrups are also original, too, big, wide, and also hand floral carved. It does have a few strings missing or shortened, (could be easily replaced). The rigging is sound, too, so the saddle is "rideable" as-is, the best I can tell. You will have to be the judge there as with any older rig. Finally, it has the old lace-up style stirrup leathers which are original, too. I will ship, but the purchaser will have to pay for all shipping costs. The no-haggle price is firm and a steal for what you're getting. I know saddles, and BA's more especially, and this is a very fair price. If you have any questions, you may call 770-893-1201 or text me at 678 677 7332. Also, I'm a saddle maker, too (www.estessaddlery.com), so please feel confident in your purchase. Please contact with any questions you may have! THANKS!
