My old boss at Brighton Feed had a name for the kind of really low end Western saddles like those I featured yesterday. He called them "barstool saddles," and he always kept a few on hand to sell to as decor to Steakhouses and other Western themed businesses.
It seems he's not the only one to have that idea. Here's an advertisement for a company that specializes in turning old trophy saddles into barstools.
And speaking of trophy saddles....
There were several painted leather trophy saddles on display at the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo. I can't decided if I like the look or not, but it would be kind of fun to try this in miniature.Kids are on spring break this week, so I'm not sure how much time I'll have for blogging. This would be a really great time for guest blogger pieces, show photos or pictures of tack made from BCS blog tutorials!
