The Classic Caliente Built on the same tree as the Liberty this style
is by far the most popular trail riding western saddle! The Classic Caliente spells comfort. A contemporary design
featuring tear drop fenders, straight cantle binding, a slick fork and a deep seat pocket gives the rider comforting lower
back support for the all day ride. Another attribute of this saddle is the formed foam thigh rolls. These rolls are
more forgiving than the hard wooden swells of a traditional tree if your mule or horse makes some sudden unexpected moves.
The nicely padded soft-seat uses both upholstery and neoprene foams, hand skived and shaped to an anatomically correct shape
with no stitching lines that can rub you raw. This saddle is popular with all breeds and types of horses and mules too! The
round skirt design gives it ability to fit the various back shapes – long and short, dippy and straight. This saddle
has a narrow to moderate twist that allows the rider to ride all day long without getting fatigued in the knees and hips.
Another plus for this saddle is the easy free flowing movement of the fenders that virtually eliminate the problems that some
folks have with their legs and feet falling asleep. As for security, it is all there. The ultra thin tree and
advance panel design allows the rider a next-to and down-on the (horse secure seat. Oh… and don’t forget that
horn… you can really use it. Great for ponying young stock along, yet low enough where you will not easily get
impaled. In closing, the only difference between the Caliente and the Liberty is that the Caliente has the blocking Photo showing difference.
