Used Wilford Lewis Roping Saddle

Last week’s Pick, a really nice 16″ Leddy Ranch/Cutting Saddle, generated a lot of action with 14 bids and a selling price of $1,197.95.

This week we’ve discovered a saddle for sale from a maker you probably haven’t heard of – Wilford Lewis. Lewis is out of Hereford, Texas and comes from a long line of saddle makers. Wilford died in 2007 but his sons are carrying on the tradition of quality saddle making.

This is a beautifully designed and balanced roping saddle. It has a rawhide-covered wood tree, 16 inch suede seat, and 7 inch gullet. The floral tooling over the majority of the saddle is gorgeous and the added touch of coin conchos gives it even more flair.

The seller has included a good variety of photos so that you can really examine the saddle.

This is a well crafted and very handsome saddle. As of this writing, there are only two bids and a current high bid of $229.16. This one is definitely worth taking a look at.
