Built on the same tree as the Caliente, this style is by far the most popular trail riding western saddle bar none!
The Liberty spells comfort. With a contemporary design featuring tear drop fenders, straight cantle binding, a slick fork and a deep seat pocket that gives comforting lower back support for the all day ride.
This saddle is popular with all breeds and types of horses and mules too! The round skirt design gives it ability to fit the various back shapes – long and short, dippy and straight.
This saddle has a narrow to moderate twist allowing the rider to ride all day long without getting fatigued in the knees and hips.
The nicely padded soft-seat uses both upholstery and neoprene foam, is hand skived and shaped to be anatomically correct, has no stitching lines that can rub you raw.
Another plus for this saddle is the easy free flowing movement of the fenders that virtually eliminates problems with legs and feet falling asleep.
As for security, it is all there. The ultra thin tree and advance panel design allow the rider a next-to and down on the horse secure seat.
Don’t forget that horn… you can really use it! Great for ponying young stock yet low enough to be generally out of the way, reducing the chance of having the horn get caught up on clothing.
The only difference between the Liberty and the Caliente is the Liberty does not have the blocking.Let The Liberty Set You Free! Customize YOUR New Saddle Today!
