The generations of horsemen and saddle makers who contributed to this design were thinkers; people who demanded a piece of equipment that would help them and their horses do a better job. That job might be a 30 mile commute to wherever the cattle were that day to roping then doctoring or branding or finding a more refined way of communicating with their best bridle horse.
The saddle should be a beautiful, functional tool. Our goal is to pull all the elements, design, quality materials and skill together to produce a custom saddle that will be a source of pleasure and satisfaction for years to come. Our Western Riding Saddles fulfill that goal.
There are countless variations on the Wade Saddle theme but the most important consideration is performance. A great riding saddle will hold up over time and provide comfort for both horse and rider.
