This gorgeous saddle is for sale. It's pretty fancy as you can see. It has a 16" dark bown sued eseat, lots of custom sterling silver overlay accented with genuine turquoise nuggets. It's built with Herman Oak Leather dyed tan with dark brown background dye. The antique finish is medium brown. The edges feature stainless steel spots. The horn, gullet and cantle have a rope edge. I felt the drop down stirrup plates were a nice finishing touch. Not quite tapaderos but fancy. The saddle is built on an SF Bowman full quater horse tree made by Bill Bean, NW bars, 7/8 flat plate rigging, 6.5" gullet, 4" round low mex horn, 2.75" wide stirrup leathers. It's sturdy & beautiful!

This saddle was entered in the 2015 ACM - Art of the Cowboy Makers contest in Las Vegas. It won both the Peoples Choice award and the Roper Cowboy Marketplace & Group W award. That was a nice Christmas gift indeed!
Saddle by Marc Oliver Saddlery - King Mountain Visalia - This is a very nice saddle & very well built as all of Oliver Saddlery's gear is. It has over 200 different little brands incorporated into the tooling pattern. The hardware is white bronze and all the silver is solid sterling as are the buckles. It has a 15" seat, 7" gullet, long tapaderos, oversize skirts, real sheepskin, a little pocket built into the back of the cantle & a hoof pick pocket.
This saddle comes with a matching martingale with lots of sterling, rifle scabbard, tooled bucking rolls and the full double rigging. It was used maybe once or twice. There are no visible signs of use, even inside the stirrups show no wear. There is a small scuff on the cantle binding but it was from shipping. The original price on the saddle alone was $8000. I'm asking $5,500 for the whole set as shown. Buyer pays shipping and insurance if requested. Contact me for more information.
