If you’re looking for a barrel or pleasure saddle that won’t be forgotten, here you go. It’s the Alamo 1234 Zebra Barrel Racer Saddle. Now I don’t think we’ve ever had an animal print saddle in the shop before. So when we saw this one, we snatched it up right away.
Alamo makes great quality saddles and they’re also known for their original designs that maintain a classic Western look. They’re flashy but they don’t go out of style, which is a good thing because this saddle is going to be around for a long time. It’s built on a solid fiberglass-covered wood tree made by Hadlock and Fox.
Now let’s take a closer look at some of the features of this saddle. The signature area of this saddle is of course the zebra seat. This one has a suede inlay to give you a little more grip in the seat. Check out the silver-laced black rawhide cantle on the back that continues the zebra theme. This saddle has gorgeous hand-tooled floral tooling on the skirts, pommel, cantle and off billet.
The saddle is only 24 inches long so even if your horse is short-backed, it should be a great fit. It has got rough-out seat jockey and fenders to keep you in place with zebra hobble straps that continue the zebra theme. The buckles for adjusting the stirrup leathers are leather-covered making it easy on your hands.
The zebra theme of the saddle is continued on the conchos, the flank strap plate and the horn cap. The saddle includes an inch and a half wide Latigo tie strap as well as the off billet and a 17-strand cinch so you’re ready to ride.
If you want some matching tack, check out Alamo’s matching zebra tack. It has the headstall with the zebra print scalloped browband outlined with flashy silver spots and jewels. You’ve got the same thing on the adjustable end pieces and the matching breast collar with the scallop design, zebra print and outlined with silver spots and jewels.
This tack is really going to look great on your horse with this saddle and we’re offering them at a special reduced price of $199 for both pieces when you buy the saddle.
