RW Bowman B–Light Trail Saddle II
$ 1,795.00

The B- Light Trail Saddle II is the same great saddle many of you have come to know and love. The only difference is the skirt pattern. We've had several calls for a square skirt version of the B-Light Trail. Here it is! Made the traditional time honored way ,using a wood tree and leather ground work over a tin seat strainer. The shear simplicity of this saddle is it's real beauty. No gimmicks here; just an honest-to-goodness , hand made saddle with no short cuts.

  • MSRP: $2210
  • Tree: The B-Light Trail Tree made of Southern Yellow Pine is covered in a single, hand-laid layer of 6 oz fiberglass cloth. It is manufactured exclusively for us by Steele Saddle Tree, LLC. The ground work is hand shaped using skirting leather over a 20 gauge tin seat strainer. We shape this leather to sit you comfortably in the saddle eliminating the need for all the fancy-named thick padding that many are using today to cover poor ground work.
