The Desert Rat

Mark is a big guy so if the fenders on this saddle look a little long…..there is a reason!  Mark lives in Southern California and rides a lot of desert country. He wanted this saddle to reflect the country he rides in and the fact that he is somewhat of a desert rat himself. The tree in this saddle was produced by Dusty Smith of WYO Saddle Trees and is a Wade with a 16″ seat and a 4 x 12 cantle. The fine silver work was done by Bruce Haener. Thank you Mark for a very interesting project.  Here are some photos.
