>> Leather Tack & Saddle
Leather tack and saddle have long histories. Take the saddle
for instance. The first saddle was created more than 4,000 years
ago. Back then it was made from a small piece of animal hide and
cloth. Over time, the saddle evolved but it took a long time.
For instance, the Greeks did not start to use saddles until the
very end of the empire.
Because of the design, riders started changing the way leather
saddles were crafted for more comfort. In the Middle East around
700 BC, Assyrian warriors began using saddles that were very decorative
for their campaigns. In fact, in the 5th Century a Scythian tomb
was opened to reveal an amazing leather saddle that was embellished
with animal motifs, gold, hair, and felt.
Today the most popular saddles are Western and English, both
which are padded to provide the rider with the ultimate comfort.
The saddles listed below are just a few examples of the type of
saddles you will find on the market today. - Tack Outlet Superstore
