Leather & Hardware

LEATHER

Hermann Oak skirting leather is always the mark of quality in a saddle.  Many tanneries have come and gone, but the one that has stood the test of time is the St. Louis, Missouri, USA tannery - Hermann Oak Leather (est. 1881). Their bark tanning process uses ingredients from sources around the world. The leather is pit tanned the old fashioned way which give the leather the body needed for saddles of the type we make. We have used leather from different tanneries over the years but in our opinion Hermann Oak skirting leather is the best that we have ever used.

 SHEEPSKINS

Sheepskins used in our saddles are all first grade bark tanned and our first choice of this product is Lazy M Shearling from Texas.  Consistency in the wool density sets the Lazy M saddle skins apart from the rest.

HARDWARESaddle hardware

All the hardware used in our saddles is stainless steel, bronze or brass. Our first choice is stainless steel, both for the beauty of the product but also the sheer strength that this hardware gives us.

STIRRUPS

We mostly use two types of stirrups in our saddles. Australian made polished alloy stirrups are the first choice for our Western Stock saddle.  For sheer quality and beauty Wilson’s Anchor S stirrups are unsurpassed and these stirrups will add value and compliment your Wade or other Western saddle.
