Used Crates All Event Saddle

LAST WEEK’S PICK:

Last week’s Pick, a 16″ Wilford Lewis Roping Saddle, generated the kind of action you’d expect for this special saddle. There were 23 bids and a final sale price of $1475. Mr. Lewis made fine saddles.

THIS WEEK’S PICK:

This week we’ve found a very nice production saddle for sale that might fit into more budgets. I’m a big fan of Crates saddles.

I think they’re one of the best production saddle manufacturers producing saddles today. Their saddles are well crafted, balanced, and a nice ride. I know firsthand as I own one myself. It’s a saddle I use for guests riders and folks always compliment me on it.

This Crates is a handsome All-Event saddle – a good choice for a general purpose saddle – team penning, barrel racing, roping, trail riding. The saddle has a rawhide-covered wood tree with full QH bars, double rigging, a 15″ suede seat, and geometric border tooling.

The owner has taken great care of it and it’s ready for a lifetime of use.
