I cannot tell you how much my daughter and I love our saddles. I originally was only going to purchase one saddle for my draft mule. I did some research and found that Sycamore Creek will custom make a saddle for less than $1000.00. I sent in my measurements. I was in constant contact with Dawn and she would help me figure out how to measure and all the details so that I would be getting a good fitting saddle. The saddle came in and I tried it on Monroe. I sent her pics and she forwarded them on to her saddle makers in Colombia. They didn’t like the fit so for no cost to me…had me re-measure Monroe and made me a new saddle. (who does that?!?!) I am completely new to the equine world so I had so many questions and needed a lot of help…this is the place to go if you want a great fitting saddle for a decent price…and at only 22 pounds I can lift it onto my big 16.4 hand boy no problem. I went to a mule trainer this summer and he was extremely impressed with the workmanship and quality of the saddle. He even tried it on another mule and said that if I ever got another mule it would probably work just fine.
Now onto my daughter…she got an older Tennessee Walker last year. After one season of drill team if she got anywhere close to him with a saddle this once gentle and sweet boy would try to kick her…he was hurting and he needed a saddle that was made for a gaited horse. Dawn worked with me and got me exactly what I needed. This company is out to prove that with good customer service, a passion for what they do and excellent craftsmanship you can have a saddle that won’t break the bank.
