Two-tone Southwestern-style Western Pleasure Saddle and Matching Bridle Set
This saddle was actually made for my husband. A few years ago, I made another saddle for him but accidentally "sold" it. Ever since it's sale, he's been asking for another one, so I came up with this saddle set. This saddle set is a western pleasure saddle set featuring Hand etched, real silver plates on the saddle; hand dyed black southwestern design along the edge and on the jockeys and fenders. The green crystals on the plates are Real Swarovski crystals. The bridle has real silver beads and real swarovski crystals. The breast collar also has a hand etched real silver plate with a green swarovski crystal. This saddle set remains in the "collection" of my husband and I'm not even allowed to take it out of the house! <G>

(One with wire and one without).
