#30 Saddle/bridle [top pic]: Natural, basketweave, minimal silvering (I added a silver twist/spiral around the bottom of the cantle because that is what all the barrel saddles in the magazine have that I used for reference); Breastcollar w/ ring; Red saddle pad (it's kinda thin so I put a white one under it that's slighly visible in the scan); Bridle: throatlatch, browband, single loop leather reins; Tiedown [middle pic]; Skid boots [lower pic]

#31 natural; saddle: basketweave, silvering, breastplate with a ring, wearleathers; bridle: silvering, throatlatch, V browband, split reins. This is a really cute set despite the fuzzy pic - it fits the SM riders, too
#32 When I thought #30 got lost in the mail, I made another one just like it for the person who ordered it. Luckily, #30 is safely home now. #30 & #32 are probably the only two western saddles I have made that are exactly alike.
#33 Natural Ė SADDLE: basketweave, breastplate with silver plate in middle, rear cinch, silvering, suede black seat; BRIDLE: throatlatch, "V" browband, split BEADED string reins, with a NEW type fancy bit! Wearleathers, too.
#34 Brown; basketweave, silvering, breastplate with silver ring in middle, rear cinch, saddle decorations, single earband, split braided reins.
Skid Boots
#35 Brown; Saddle: some bastket weave, breastplate with silver plate in middle, rear cinch keepers with silver tip on end, silvering, wearleathers on green saddle pad; Bridle: silvering, single ear band, a little longer single loop reins.
#36 Natural; Saddle: basketweave, silvering, breastplate silver ring in middle, rear cinch, earleathers, saddle decorations; Bridle: natural, silvering, throatlatch, browband, split leather reins with silver ferrule beads.
#37 Brown; Saddle: basketweave, black suede seat, silver plating, rear cinch, concho decorations on the saddle and wearleathers on the saddlepad -- prototype pattern of the horn/swell/fork that is more realistic but also a little bigger than normal; breastcollar with a ring in the center; Bridle: slightly fancy bit, straight browband, throatlatch, split leather reins.
#38 Brown; Saddle: basketweave, tan suede seat, light silver plating, rear cinch -- another prototype pattern of the horn/swell/fork that is more realistic but also a little bigger than normal; breastcollar with a ring in the center (protective leather piece behind it has been added since the picture was taken); Bridle: slightly fancy bit, straight browband, throatlatch, split leather reins. Both bridle and breastcollar have EXTREMELY DETAILED "rawhide" accents painted on in red and white (the red is not as visible in the picture as in real life)!
#39 natural; saddle: basketweave, dark brown suede seat, silver plating (even on the swell of the horn), breastcollar has a ring in the center, accents by the saddle horn and on the stirrups; bridle: fancy bit, straight browband, throatlatch, split leather reins. The saddlepad has wearleathers on it.

#40 combo of dark brown and brown, basketweave, rear cinch, breastcollar w/ ring, throatlatch and browband, single loop leather reins, tiedown, skidboots, splint boots, bell boots, lariat with a tie strap
#41 This this is an absolutely gorgeous western show set. In all honesty itís one of the most realistic saddles Iíve made to date and definitely one of my favorites. It's in dark brown with basketweave, black suede seat, silver plating; breastcollar w/ a ring in the center; straight browband, throatlatch, split leather reins, wearleathers.
#42 This by far is the most detailed showy saddle I've ever made. It's in natural with tooling and a beaded bridle. The tooling is painted on by hand. Even the silvering has swirly designs in it. The pictures says it all!
#43 BEAUTIFUL natural western show set with painted tooling and silver beading
#44 dark brown western set
