Almost wordless Wednesday

I saw this beaded saddle last month at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado. Usually I would have tried to get some information on a tack item as unusual as this one. However, I had four kids with me that day and there just wasn't much time for lingering. The people working the booth were busy, so I snapped a few pictures and that was that. I know absolutely nothing about this saddle except that it's pretty cool!


  1. Wow! I can't imagine the work that went into it, or the price. I hope they double knotted here and there and it doesn't break... ever see those cartoons where the pearl necklace breaks? Yeah, major comedy with this one.

  2. I would be afraid to ride in it. Gorgeous though.

  3. I had never seen pictures of a real one't imagine the work.
    I think Cary Nelson made a Traditional scale version of one similar a couple of years ago.
    Thanks for posting the pictures! What a treat!

  4. There's an interesting charro saddle on

    It's pink!

  5. I don't think this saddle was actually for sale. I think it was there to attract people into the booth (worked with me!). They were selling jewelry and such--not tack.

    Bif, I saw that Charro saddle. It looked really cheaply made in addition to being a questionable color. I did *not* copy the picture for my reference files!
