This saddle was commissioned to become a family heirloom. They wanted to honor the designs of the plains Indians by choosing the bison and war horse images. The personal inscription on the back of the cantle shows a concern for how peoples actions become their legacy....it reads "We will be known forever by the tracks we leave". We've kept the native American theme strong by carving animal tracks and feathers. The edges braided in a fine kangaroo lace, and the hand made Navajo silver work gives the saddle a striking Skyhorse look. Finally, the proprietary lightning bolt tooling calls in the forces of nature. As with all of our work, we collaborate with our clients to create their vision!
