Beautiful New Custom Western Wade Saddle
build for an Icelandic, with an extra wide wither/gullet, and a more narrow rib cage and a very short back. Good for all these types:
14.5 inch seat
Built October 2012 on a Rod Nikkel tree by Tom Lamprey. This saddle is strong and will stand up to years of hard use: roping, ranching, rugged riding.
If you ever tried to fit a western saddle to an Icelandic (or any short backed wide horse) you KNOW how hard it is. This one fits. It has wide withers, with the perfect rock and slope to hug the back, and will not poke the lumbar. Your fanny sits over the ribs, and your leg drops softly under you in a balanced seat. The stirrups are wide platform with nice covers. The leather is all top grade, thick and strong. The tree wood with rawhide wrapping, a work of art itself.
