Lisa's Saddle: This is my favorite trail saddle because it is so streamlined, yet strong and comfortable. The tree is a Visalia, which has slick forks and cuts down on weight and
bulk, yet deep seated for comfort and security on the trail. The skirts are a "butterfly" style, which sweeps way up under the leg for great contact with my horse.
The dropped D rigging hangs low enough and hugs my horse, and is reinforced with Biothane (a plastic coated nylon) for great strength. I have added a small pouch on the back of the upright
cantle where I keep my sunscreen, lip balm and my pocket knife.
It has a braided cantle and our trademark inlaid padded seat. The hand carving is both playful and unique. Simple conchos of sterling silver and brass and our favorite way of attaching
strings - off the D rings that hang from the conchos.
The strings then loop around the D's, which allows me to remove a string easily if I need a lace for something down the trail, to replace them when necessary, and gives me extra rings to
snap things onto on the trail. $7000.00
