Working Class Barrel Saddle

Additional Information

The Working Class Barrel Saddle is made  the traditional, time honored way using a wood tree and leather ground  work over a tin strainer. This saddle brings together a great  combination of qualities needed in today's competition: Durability–constructed  with select 13-15oz. leather over a Steele Saddle Tree, LLC tree, with  stainless steel hardware. Built to last and handle the demands of the  competition circuit. Style–double  rigged with stainless steel  c-rigging rigging in front. Tall, cutter-style horn, bicycle style seat,  floral and basket stamp tooling with running W border, finished out  with antique ranger star conchos . Lightweight–coming in just under  30lbs with rear cinch.

Tree: B-Fast  Competition Tree, made of Southern Yellow Pine covered in a single  hand-laid layer of 6 oz fiberglass cloth. Manufactured Steele Saddle  Tree LLC. The ground work is hand shaped using skirting leather over a  20 gauge saddle strainer (tin seat). We shape this leather to sit you  comfortably in the saddle eliminating the need for all the fancy-named  thick padding that many are using today to cover poor ground work.
