Our Tack – Where we make it and why.

April 26, 2021

Tack

One of the questions/hesitations we see most often is people being concerned about the quality of our tack because of our prices.

First, check out our testimonials.  We receive messages all the time about the quality of our saddles, so take it from our customers. People are always shocked to find that they’re even better in person and exceeded their quality expectations.

Now to answer the main question, “Why are our saddles affordable?” 

I have a sourcing background.  When I worked for other people, my job was to develop products that no one else had and find an economical way of making them.  I would write extensive “spec sheets” that defined every aspect of a product.  I learned that other countries have some great skills and that manufacturing with them could create a better price point for customers.

So, that’s what I did with our saddles.

It took over a year to find someone we trusted who would make our saddles exactly how we wanted and most importantly, our trees.  Trees are the very foundation of any saddle and good fit is our top priority.

We found a fourth generation saddlery in India that was willing to develop a relationship with us and listen to what we had in mind. Something we couldn’t find anywhere in the US.  We actually had a very hard time finding anyone in the US who would make our designs and on top of that, our cost would be what we sell them at now. We didn’t want to enter the market as a custom priced saddle maker because that’s not our goal. Our goal is to make it affordable for the whole family to get in the saddle with a great product.

Now, making things overseas has the stigma of being “cheap” quality-wise.  However, because we are able to control everything from the tree to the materials, we are able to make a quality product.  Since we don’t have the factory overhead, we are able to offer our saddles at a decent price.

We stand behind our product and its quality, so we offer refunds on anything (minus shipping and a small restocking fee). Your happiness and your kids happiness in the saddle is our top priority.

We hope you enjoy saddling up with us!
