I know that they are expensive.
Nice photo! I like saddles. (I like all kinds of horsey things.)They have a certain appeal, and well-captured.
Ahhhh the smell of leather. Nice looking saddles too.
When I see something like this, I believe Ocala really is the Horse Capital of the World. ;-)
They look so well made. I bet they last a lifetime.
Very interesting. I love the smell of leather and saddles always have a clean leathery horsy smell. Had a neighbor once that was a saddlemaker. Interesting work. MB
elle sont belles, mais si elles viennent de France c'est normal ;o)
I know nothing about saddles, but these are beautiful. It sounds a bit strange to me that you are importing saddles from Europe...
These look so soft, yet sturdy and comfortable. I learned to ride on an English saddle, but am not sure how well I'd do now on a horse.
Don't know anything about saddles either.
I don't know anything about saddles either, but the leather is gorgeous! I wonder if they make shoes too… ;)
they look a bit like prehistoric birds - all lined up with no horse beneath themyou know me, always seeing the twist in things ;)
Being the expert horseman I am, I always have to ask which is the front and the back.
When you sit on it does it say Merci?
There are always concession tents set up at the horse events and even though I no longer have a horse, I have to go in and see whats new. It gets in the blood.
What a lovely capture of tones, light and textures. Great saddle display.
Being a "flatter" world these days, I'm not too surprised at anything, but always interested to see where things are made. In my early years, I had an Australian stock saddle that was the perfect hybrid between Western and English as far as I was concerned. A trainer at Santa Anita liked it so much that when I no longer had horses, he bought it. He saw my ad. No, I didin't have racing horses, only a couple of the riding kind. One was spectacular. So, I still have a soft spot for horses and riding. Should try it again in my old age, yes?
English saddles made in France and sold in the U.S.? Well, that's what they call globalization. China probably produced the tent where the fellas sell it...God bless you!Cezar
