MINI FEATHERS - Pleasure/Show Saddle

 

TURQUOISE FEATHER SADDLE: This most recent creation highlights the unique talents of Lisa and Loren Skyhorse. Starting with the seat: a fully inlaid Navajo weaving: beautiful yet tough enough for decades of use. Next view Lisa's hand carved feathers and border stamp that was inspired by an antique Navajo weaving. The paint is PERMANENT! and is applied before the saddle oiling. The edge of the cantle, front of the forks, and edge of the horn are braided by Loren in a pure fine silver lace. Lastly, the turquoise and sterling silver conchos were created with Tyrone turquoise...very large slabs.....and the mine has been closed for decades! This saddle is actually a SET: saddle, breast collar, and bridle with reins......all a matched set!

Available!

Double XX

This custom saddle was an homage to the XX Farm champions. Each portrait is a different one of his Arabians, and their names are overlaid on every silver concho.

He has so many champions we had to build wear leathers and a breast collar to name them all! The entire saddle is trimmed with kangaroo leather lacing and the seat is inlaid ostrich leather.
