There are so many wonderful tackmakers working in the hobby today--I hope you enjoyed looking at these saddles as much as I did!
Oregon is Jennifer Kistler's home state, and I saw several of her saddles over the weekend. This was a special treat for me since I consider Jennifer to be the hobby's best English saddle maker. This particular saddle belongs to Marianna Stepniewski. I took pictures of it from every angle! I love the piping along the seat. That's not something I've attempted to do, but it looks so wonderful that I will have to give it a try.Marianna is also the lucky owner of this lovely Michelle McKinney saddle.
This English sidesaddle belongs to Marianna.
Another English sidesaddle.
Same saddle as above, opposite side.An English type endurance saddle. I think this one might be made by Alicia Miller.
The next two saddles are made by Pam Perkins.
I think Pam has a very nice sense of design as far as the placement of tooling and silver decoration.
