Custom Balanced Ride Saddles

"When you make your living on the back of a horse, you take care of it.”

– Owner, Roley Schoonover

A saddle can make the difference between a great ride and a terrible ride for you and your horse. Therefore, we provide our guests with quality, custom made, John Fallis or Vick Bennett Balanced Ride Saddles. These saddles create a more comfortable ride for you and your horse because:

  1. The seat design is nearly flat to place the rider on the horse’s true center of gravity.
  2. The rigging design reduces the bulk under the rider's legs permitting more leg contact with the horse and promoting more control. This design also reduces pain in your knees while riding.
  3. The stirrups are designed to hang farther forward than conventional stirrups to increase the rider's stability and balance.

We are committed to providing you with the most comfortable ride possible.

Our horses are our greatest asset here at Western Pleasure Guest Ranch, so we believe it is vitally important to take care of their comfort and long term use. With this in mind, we have chosen to invest in USA made 100% wool saddle pads, which are designed to be lightweight, flexible, and the natural fibers create maximum comfort for the horse.
