The Camino Trail Saddle

Additional Information

The Camino Trail Saddle  incorporates  the same traditional, time honored way using a wood tree and leather  ground work over a tin strainer as all our saddles. In answer to many  customer requests, it features Dual Density Visco–Memory Foam for an  extra-soft seat padding covered with perforated top grain leather.  All  the hardware on this model is solid brass.
