Saddle Donations Please
I’ve been riding in hand-me-down saddles mostly my whole life. I’m definitely not complaining though, they are very good quality. The first is my mom’s Syd Hill & Sons Aussie saddle. It is very nice, she had it built for herself and her morgan/mustang mare. I love riding an Aussie saddle, they keep your tush in the seat in spooks, bucks, spins and bolts, and they’re excellent for boonie whompin’ as my friend and I call it.
The second saddle is my dad’s large, heavy, square skirted western by Tex Tan. It is a really nice saddle, has seen me through many years and fit many of my horses. It is a semi-quarter tree which seems pretty universal but not anymore. My mare Cali has just refused to carry it and I think it’s pinching her shoulders. So… A girl can dream right? I can hope, wish and pray for my own custom saddle from a saddle maker right? I’ll take most any of his saddles, they are high quality, locally made, gorgeous, well thought out, and kinda spiritual.
I once had the money to buy one of these saddles and sure enough, it flew out the window. With a barn being built, it most likely went to lumber and tin roofing. Then I saved in cash another $1,200. I was well on my way, but little by little it was raided (not by me either, and I’m not mentioning names) and most likely again… for the barn. Okay, so yeah, the barn is for my horses and sheep… but, but, but.
Oh how I want one of these puppies! Visit J.J. Maxwell Tack & Saddle Co. for full explanation but beware, you may fall in love with them too!
This pretty girl wants me to get one too… Donations are very readily accepted and humbly appreciated. 😉
