Our new line of economy pack saddles can still be counted on to last a lifetime; we've just eliminated some of the frills to make this saddle more affordable for someone that doesn't necessarily need the top of the line model.
TREE: Made exclusively for Outfitters Supply, these trees are constructed from the finest materials available with exacting attention to details. The contoured bars are kiln dried pine which are hand shaped and fine sanded. The wood is sealed with high quality exterior deck stain for protection and longevity. The crossbucks are made of solid oak and treated with linseed oil. The zinc plated hardware is counter sunk into the bars. The universal Tehema-style tree fits most average horses and mules.
RIGGING: We handpick and cut the leather for our rigging straps from premium heavy harness leather. The saddle has adjustable double rigging; buckles on the tree allow you to place the rigging in the best spot for your animal. Rigging straps are 1¼", all other straps are a full 1" wide. We provide roller buckles for easy adjustment on the quarter straps and Conway buckles on all other straps for plenty of adjustment.
BREECHING & BREASTCOLLAR: The leather breeching and breastcollar have beveled edges to reduce chafing. Our breeching, breastcollar and all straps are riveted with heavy copper rivets for extra durability.
EXTRAS: The pack saddles are sold ready to pack with four premium latigos and a 100% Mohair/wool double pack cinch. Specify a cinch length, even sizes 22/24" - 34/36" (average pack mules and horses generally take a 26/28" cinch).
