Black Flex Saddle
Our Black Flex Saddles is named after the Man in Black, Johnny Cash, who is buried outside Nashville in Hendersonville, Tennessee. To own one of these great looking saddles you need to “Walk the Line” even if you’re a “Boy Named Sue.”
Not only is does our Black Flex Saddle look great, but the flex tree is especially comfortable for both rider and horse.
This saddle has all the features of an expensive house-hold brand name saddle, but, not the expensive price. With customers using our saddles for over a decade, we have the durability and feedback to back up our products. Check out our Facebook and eBay reviews and see for yourself!
Gaited Saddles: These saddles are built on a specially designed gaited tree. It works well on most Tennessee Walkers, Spotted Saddle Horses, Racking Horses, and most of the other southern gaited breeds. If you have a MFT, Paso Fino, or Rocky Mountain, gaited horse that is difficult to fit, contact us for my recommendations. NOTE: This saddle does not seem to fit most Arabians.

We use soft, supple leather. Our leather may some slight natural imperfections, such as scrapes, fat lines, and other minor irregularities that will be minor and in no way affects the use of the product. We must emphasize the word minor because occasionally customers are more concerned with perfect leather, no matter the cost. If you are a perfectionist we can make a saddle and use only “hand select leather” as a specially quoted price.
Rich, our founder and designer, has worked for many years to develop our gaited saddles with their comfortable and great looking, western styles. Check out the amazon feedback about Rich and our products on both eBay and Facebook for over a decade.
