New Display for Western Saddles

We’ve recently made some changes here in the store by adding new displays for our western saddles. These displays make it easier to view of our new western saddles. We can easily house 40 plus new western saddles and have a great area for you to sit in the new saddles while working with our knowledgeable staff. Take a look at the new displays below.

 

 

 

 

 

There is still one more display rack in production and should be put up in the next few days. As well it gives us some room to display girths and the professionals choice boots right next to the saddles. We’ve gotten some comments from people who have stopped in and seen them already. Let us know what you think in the comments below or stop in and tell us yourself.

Weaver Leather’s Smart Cinch

Cinch up right the first time with the exclusive Smart Cinch

Easily and humanely cinch up a horse more securely the first time, every time with the Smart Cinch® from Weaver Leather. Featuring the exclusive, patented Roll Snug® Cinch Buckle, the Smart Cinch® makes cinching up almost effortless.

Unlike a conventional cinch buckle, the Roll Snug® Cinch Buckle’s unique two roller design eliminates the need to pull leather against leather. The two rollers allow the latigo strap to roll freely and give you more leverage, making cinching up your horse a breeze. Ideal for men, women and youth of all ages, the Smart Cinch® helps everyone get their cinch snug enough. The Smart Cinch® — a very smart choice!

The Smart Cinch Makes Cinching Up Easy

Run the latigo under, then through the top roller of the Roll Snug® Cinch Buckle. Bring it back up through the rigging “C” or dee.
