The Mounted Shooter Saddle is made in the traditional, time honored way, using a rawhide covered wood tree and leather ground work, over a tin seat strainer. This saddle brings together a great combination of qualities needed in today's mounted shooting competition. It is very durable; constructed of select 13-15oz. leather over a Steele Saddle Tree, LLC tree with stainless steel hardware. Built to last, yet stylish and period correct with Sam Stagg rigging and leather covered stainless steel dees. A unique combination of period styling and today's comfort allow us to offer you a saddle with the authentic look you're after and the feel of a competition saddle.
