Now, here is an affordable ranch cutter. From one of our favorite saddle companies, Crates. According to the serial number, this one is from 2003, and this one has seen plenty of use. Heck, if you are going to buy an expensive saddle, you should get your use out of it! 16″, lower, wider seat that still offers great security, with forward set swells and cutter horn. On a rawhide wrapped wood tree, QH bars according to the serial number, with a 6.5″ gullet with a wide fork ankle, and has a higher gullet height for nice wither clearance. Fits a bit flatter, with just a bit of rock, 27.5″ skirt”. Free swinging fenders, jockeys and fenders are roughed out and were just re-roughed so a extra grippy. Smooth leather seat. This saddle has seen some long hours. We have redone the horn, has new leather conchos and strings, and discoloration from time and use. The seat shows some considerable wear, with a deep wear spot and a small hole, but doesn’t impact use at all at this time. This is a nice rig at a great price!
