Unbridled elegance in custom saddles... A Skyhorse
saddle is a singular work of art, created specifically for horse and rider by master saddlemakers Lisa and Loren Skyhorse. The finest materials, traditional craftsmanship
, uncompromising dedication to detail and quality, these are the hallmarks of a Skyhorse saddle.
Each is a masterpiece in leather, distinctively designed and exquisitely crafted to meet your individual riding needs. Each of our handmade saddles is built to custom
specifications; from the rawhide covered tree and hand carved groundseat, to individual brands and logos, to the color of your choice, to the masterful hand carving of master carver Lisa Skyhorse.
The edges of their saddles are all rubbed to a smooth patina, or trimmed
with Loren Skyhorse's famous eight-strand edge braid, in either traditional kangaroo leather lace or our exclusive solid sterling silver braid.
Our remarkable silver braiding is a Skyhorse saddle company trademark and is unique throughout the industry.
Silver accents, handcrafted by a select few
silversmiths, add spirit and beauty to any Skyhorse saddle. Our exceptional conchos are fashioned to your personal taste and range in style from traditional engraving to overlay, inlay,
stamped, hammered, polished, or set stones.
Native American weavings and exotic leathers, including full quill ostrich, stingray, and alligator, can be overlaid or inlaid for a crowning touch.
Skyhorse also offers complete sets of unique, top quality accessories; bridles, reins, breastcollars, flank cinches, rifle scabbards, front and rear saddlebags, wear leathers.
CONSTRUCTION: Every Skyhorse saddle is built on a tree made to your
specifications, to fit both you and your style of riding, as well as your breed of horse. The tree is built with wood and covered with rawhide, like the classic trees
that are still around a hundred years later. All construction is done with nails and screws, with a hand carved leather groundwork that enables us to carve each seat to fit your body type. We
use all number 1 grade leather, tanned by Hermann Oak Leather, the oldest and most respected tanners of
saddle skirting. All our saddles are lined with 1" thick genuine sheepskin. All hardware is stainless steel or solid brass.
Every aspect of the construction, from materials to
workmanship, is uncompromised quality. We average 30 saddles per year, so every saddle we built is important to us. Our saddles are not only beautiful and comfortable, they are built strong
enough to be roped off of. Another Skyhorse trademark is our fully inlaid padded seats. The inlay protects the edges of the soft leather and allows us to inlay Navajo weavings or exotic
leather. It most importantly offers less bulk and more close contact. The foam is a closed cell that offers great padding, and does not absorb water.

The workmanship and artistry of Skyhorse Saddles are like none other. They have an up-to-date show ring appearance but also possess a unique, authentic look. I was proud to ride a Skyhorse to
my championships: 1992 U.S. National Champion - Western Sidesaddle, 1992 Scottsdale Champion - Western Sidesaddle, 1993 Canadian National Champion - Western Sidesaddle, 1993 Reserve U

As a specialist in dressage, it is imperative to me that while riding Western my saddle be both beautiful in look and fit. I have sat on no other Western Saddle besides my Skyhorse
that has given me the equivalent of my dressage saddle. The riding comfort, closeness and workmanship is superior. J. Leslie Wagschal , 10 Times National Champion - Dressage, 3

I was first drawn to Skyhorse Saddles by their beauty. Loren & Lisa were so accommodating and prompt - bending over backwards to make sure I was happy. The custom tooling so
impressed me and they did such a great job carving my logo into the design on my Sidesaddle. Its fits my horse and me beautifully. Betty Chapman, Washington - 1992 Scottsdale
Champion- 1/2 Arabian Western Sidesaddle, 1992 Canadian Reserve National Champion-Western Sidesaddle
Anyone who sees a Skyhorse Saddle knows they are expertly hand-crafted--each one a unique and beautiful piece of art. You have to own one to know that they fit and ride and wear as
beautifully as they look. We are wildly lucky because we own four Skyhorse Saddles. Our show saddles never fail to draw attention and comments from fellow exhibitors and spectators for
they are so exceptional. And our work saddle gets used and abused and looks and feels as good as the day we bought it. Our grandchildren don't know how lucky they are - learning to ride on the very best. Michael & Sherrilyn Pasternak, Tennessee
I have had so much enjoyment and use from my two gorgeous Skyhorse Saddles. The tooling
is absolutely the most beautiful I have ever seen, as well as unique. When I came to Lisa & Loren with ideas for an American Indian tooling design, their execution of this was beyond
my highest expectations. Now that these saddles have seen so many hours and miles of use they just get better and better. My newest one is so incredibly comfortable, light weight and
close contact - the type of saddle I can just spend hours in and not get tired. Diane Powers

Troys Western Heritage Gallery started as a saddle shop in 1956. We then evolved into a fine
art gallery. We still love to feature Western saddles, but it is hard to find saddles that fit into the context of fine art. Skyhorse Saddles fit beautifully in our galleries and we are proud to show them. Troy Murray, Troys Western Heritage Gallery - Scottsdale & Santa Fe
