Cliff Wade Buckaroo Ranch Saddle
Buckaroo Leather is proud to introduce our handmade bench Wade Post saddle. We have been working on this for awhile now with a saddle maker with over 25 years experience in saddle design, custom fitting of horse and rider, hand tooling, carving, and construction! SAVE ON FREE shipping, see below!
The materials which go into the making of Buckaroo Leather Tack and Saddles and the craftsmanship employed in its making are elements of the highest importance. You could have no higher guarantee of quality and workmanship than the name Buckaroo Leather upon your Tack and saddles. It represents an organization proud of its establishment in 1979, and ever since catering to horseman and women with two generations of experience and knowledge applied in the making of riding equipment to the most exacting standards. And rest assured you will receive the most value for your money spent.
Our trees are AAA Premium Quality.
BARS: Bowden Style Arizona Bars made with tight grain and greater tensile strength from high elevation Colorado Pines. Sewn with the best hides and rawhide lace available. The gullets and cantels are hand nailed.
Trees are left to dry naturally and slower to help avoid twist and warp. All trees are assembled in jigs for greater accuracy. The bars are shaped by computerized machines to tolerances of .003”. This brings more symmetry and precision to these top quality trees. After years of experience we have selected the bar measurements that seem to fit the widest variety of horses.
No saddle has yet to be returned for causing saddle sores on a horse or breakage. Remember, no one saddle will fit all horses. If you feel your horse may have problems fitting a tree, mention this before you order your saddle. We can help. Our Arizona bars of the tree have a good amount of flair at the front, below the swells (Not all do), giving the shoulders more freedom. In general, the bottom sides of the bars have a lot of bearing surface and one mitered stirrup slot each side just back of the swells, so the bars are the thickest and strongest at stress points.
All good ranch and roping saddles have AZ bars. Some folks feel that you have a closer fit to the horse's back and possibly avoid some soreness from the stirrup leathers by having two stirrup slots recessing the leathers better (we have never had soaring problems with our AZ bars).
The front rigging rings are provided by Bork Saddlery Hardware of Pendleton Oregon. Made from #70 manganese bronze alloy. Special orders can substitute stainless steel hardware. The main thing we strive for is American made, high quality hardware. We use top grade Blevins Buckles for the stirrups. All hardware including the smallest buckles we use are top quality either brass or stainless steel.
Leather: Hermann Oak AAA Grade Skirting
It is finished with hand rubbed 100% pure neatsfoot oil.
OPTIONS- 1) AS PICTURED- The swells, back jockeys and half-covered stirrups are stamped with a traditional geometric box stamp giving it a traditional “waffle” look. And the rest of the saddle is Rough Out with a “wavy river” border stamp around edges; it has a look similar to a rope design.
OPTION- 2) All Rough Out.
OPTION- 3) All Smooth out (grain out).
Extra Features at no Charge-
Your Cliff Wade Post (sometimes called slick or A fork) saddle has a 7/8 plate rigging that is installed on the tree with stainless steel screws and pilot drilled holes to eliminate any splitting in the tree. We have never had a rigging pulled out of one of our saddles!
100% wool sherling we use to line the skirts is from ¾” to 1” thick. The skirts are properly plugged & contoured to help displace weight across a wider area of your horses back helping to avoid pressure points.
The swells, back jockeys and half-covered stirrups are stamped with a traditional geometric box stamp giving it a traditional “waffle” look. And the rest of the saddle is Rough Out with a “wavy river” border stamp around edges; it has a look similar to a rope design. Or all rough out.
Stirrups are 3” bell bottom with half-covered design and leather treads installed. And the stirrup leathers are permanently twisted to face forward and laced. This helps to relieve strain on the ankles and knees caused by stirrups that won’t face forward.
