Authentic hand made saddles and accessories of the Old West since 1984


Return with us now, to those thrilling days of yesteryear!!! Ride the rigs the old-timers rode. We offer a selection of Civil War and Indian Wars saddles, horse gear, and leather accoutrements for your consideration. We furnish both civilian and military equipment.
O f special interest to the ladies, in addition to the beauty and comfort of our old time slick fork saddles, is their light weight...... Consider 35 pounds or less, rigged and ready to ride.
Many of our customers are occasional trail riders, who rent their horses, but value their comfort.
Old West Saddle Shop is a custom shop, so if you have an idea, a sample or a picture of an item you want, and can't find, we can make it for you. If you don't quite know what you need or want, please take a look at our page on selecting a saddle. Give us a call and we'll try and help you decide. We can fill your wish list with authentic, correct equipment. Evenings are a good time to reach me.

Dave,
How are things? I realized after getting my saddle (Sante Fe) I never communicated with you again.
Just want to say that this is the best saddle Ive ever owned (and you can ask my wife how many saddles I have!).
Everything you say about the comfort and rideability have turned out to be absolutely true.
I think next summer I will set aside my Wintec Pro Endurance and do an endurance ride in the Santa Fe...
Best regards,
