Big Horn Western Saddles


Big Horn Flex Tree Pleasure Saddles  

If you want the most comfort and utility for your money, this is a great flex tree pleasure saddle for you. Big Horn Saddles offers an exceptional flex tree that allows flex from front to rear and from side to side. These movements are especially important with the rigors of trail riding.  Place your weight more over the front end, or more to the horse's center as you feel that you need, for a particular landscape. Deep conditions, winding downhills, position of the run, etc.,  ...a flex tree does make a difference. And the 16 or 17 inch seat saddle models allow plenty of room for the larger rider, or the rider that wants more movement in his/her saddle seat.

The flexible tree allows easier movement for the horse while making those sharp bends going around curves, as well as up and down hills. Place less pressures on the kidneys, shoulders, and on your saddle block! Made on Quarter Horse Bars to allow as much padding as needed to mate up with your horse. 

What are curved skirts about?  Look at the picture and see that the dee holding the girth strap hangs freely and in front of the fenders. See how the skirt is cut toward the center line? This slight upward lift in the skirt of your western saddle allows your leg to be in closer contact with your horse. In other words, less effort to ride easier.

High Performance Halters: Another favorite is the BigHorn felt lined, (nose & crown) halter. What this means to you is that of all the halters we have used for almost 50 years, these seem to be best for leaving on the horse during longer periods of time. The nylon doesn't get hard like polypropylene halters. The felt allows this halter to be more comfy in most weather conditions. Padded nose & crown dry back fast without problems. This halter uses rated materials so that it should hold together for most pulls, but will break, or snap straighten with excessive effort that would have hurt your horse anyway. Easily repairable. Comes with a Warranty.  Snaps are easily replaced. Restitching with a standard leather type or heavy duty sewing machine , or by hand awl can be done. OR, the halter can be returned to us or to the maker, (clean), for repairs. 1 year warrantee coverage, (At our stables, ours average lasting over 10 years.) Hardware is brass type with no bad edges. 7624 is 3/4 inch nylon, (not polypropylene), with adjustable crown & nose with throat snap (which can  be twisted either hook in or out). Available in sizes: XL Horse, Reg Horse, Arab, yearling, weanling. (suckling & pony available too)  All popular colors available.  Only $19.99 or  3 for $17.99 each.     7139 is the same model in 1 inch nylon.  $20.99 or 3 for $18.49 each.  Available in popular XL (Draft), Reg horse, Arab & Yearling sizes. 

Matching leads have availability to interchange brass snap, halter chain, or bull snap as you like. Matching colors  1 inch heavy duty brass snap lead    Only $11.99 each   or 3 for $10.49 each.  (Brass Chain leads add $2.00 each. Or get an extra brass chain with the HD snap lead for $6.99 extra.)


A moment of true honesty:  Are you going from website to website, dealer to dealer, to get your "best deal"? When you're planning, researching what you need, are you wasting your time or finding answers?  You've just found what you've been looking for.  - You are building a dream! You're both cautious and frugal. We are too. Somewhat picky and always curious. We gratefully assist hundreds of riders every year.  We thank you for your inquiry.

There was a time when maybe there was an occasional "deal" to be found. Someone didn't know what they had and sold it cheap. But today, the Internet and free enterprise has leveled that to fair pricing all around. And today, most of us can't afford this day's so-called "deals". Truth is that most of you looking only at price will be stung! Most of the "deals" are someone else's problems that they hope to pass to you now!

One business person commented that he had no problems how he made a real luxurious living. He made his fortunes off of the stinginess of greedy people. I will say that later in life, he found happiness through helping. Money is a medium of exchange - not an end to itself. Be wise!  

Better quality saddles are not "Wal-Mart" items!  Somebody can always offer cheaper made products.  Some sell this same product only as a base item (Minimum accepted quality) so they can make a very interesting offer & get your attention. They either are large enough to have the saddle "slightly" "modified" for them for a larger margin, (economies of scale and need to cover extra costs of a large enterprise), or they offer a very small margin because they offer extremely limited service. (No skin in the game! These tend to not stay around very long.  And the saddle makers will usually have you to go through your no-longer-in-business dealer for warrantees. How ya gonna do that? Do you send it overseas fro repairs?) So you're stuck again.

Even name brands offer a variety of qualities so they stay in business. Have you held a conversation with your dealer? Can you even find a phone number? Are they considering your true inseam needs? Are they shipping the saddle "ready-to-ride", conditioned and with proper fittings and accessories/necessities, for your riding enjoyment? Are they answering your questions?  Have they even offered to have you send pics of your horses? Offer saddle tree forms? Advising you based on riding experience?  Know the options and explaining these benefits for YOU to choose?  

Did you know that many saddle makers will make small "tweaks" for you that make the difference between Happiness and Calamity with your riding experience? (Dealers build a relationship of improving quality products with these makers, or with tweaks that make you want to trade again in just a couple years!) 

I'm over 60, been a professional in this industry, (which is shifting in many ways, by the way) since 1974. Reality is that I have climbed both sides of the fence and straddled it too. To some competitors, I've been the "dirty discounter. I've sold the highest end too. Most times a happy medium of values are reached, depending on the needs of the buyer.  My most proud bragging rights were not when I made a "deal" because I was lowest price.

My bragging rights have been working with small families, beginning riding students, instructors, and up-and-coming professionals who had a horse or 30, and a rider, who had potential to really make it to professionalism! To see my clients' dreams come true is what makes my heart sing! 

Or, for the retiring rider who understands what each hour is really worth! Who wants to enjoy their horse sport they love, rather than the agony, frustration, of "almost". When I can make a client happy, provide them with years of quality time, comfort, knowledge - That's the "deal" I like to do! 

"Value Added" does have added value! You sleep good at night because you're working hard and steady, every day, to make dreams come true. And we're never bored! 

You have to decide if YOU want to ride horses for the MAX enjoyment you can get with the limited hours you have, or if ya just wanna get by.   *** Almost any saddle sold on the web could do either. You need the right saddle for the right riding purpose. 

If you want to win; if you need specifics to make your ride better; whether trails or arenas; If you want a coach to launch you further, Maybe we should talk.   God Bless You!  ChuckyT
