From the cutting pen to the trail riding string, it’s important to have a saddle you’re in love with. Whatever you choose to do with your horse, one thing remains the same, the importance of a good fit for both you and your four legged partner.
One saddle company tends to stand out, and go above and beyond when it comes to customer service, and quality of product. The Saddle House is known for great fitting saddles that are always a classy look. These saddles are used in various associations from reining, to ranch riding, to the cowhorse and the barrel and team roping pen.
Adam Schwalm is the owner of The Saddle House and tends to keep the saddles in style. Therefore, he is known for creating trends inside the arena. “We’re getting more request for dyed backgrounds and antique finishes, as well as roughouts are still being popular especially chocolate roughout, and darker saddles in general,” says Schwalm. Dark saddles are always a safe sophisticated look for a lighter horse.
For the ladies, the trends seem to change a little. “The ladies are wanting just a little color like turquoise flower centers or dots or buckstitch. The color is a nice way to dress up a saddle and show personality,” explains Schwalm. Get a neutral buckstitch like tan or black to blend in and classify your look. Or go for your favorite show color and drag the scheme through with your saddle. Whatever you dream of to do, they can create.
If you are in the versatility ranch horse classes, these are also a huge hit. The color and the sharpness makes you and your mount stand out of the crowd. “People want them fancy with attention to detail, or smaller little details that dress them up but still ranchy.”
Last year, The Saddle House added their new collection of barrel saddles to the market. These saddles are made for the horse and rider in mind. Taking the industry standard and adding a twist to make it just right for their clients. These saddles as well as any of The Saddle House Saddles can be custom made to fit the horse and rider. Adam and his team love making custom saddles for their clients. Their favorite part is taking your dreams and turning them into an artful reality.
