The Officer

The Officer   Built on the same tree as the Express, Freedom and Western Endurance. The Officer is a secure saddle with the fork designed low and out of the way but still shaped just right for the perfect handhold. Really sweet is this saddle’s flap design with both front and rear thigh blocking for the best in security. The seat in this saddle has a lower rise allowing the rider room to move, while still offering a great pocket to sit back in. The seat itself is nicely padded and the soft-seat uses both upholstery and neoprene foams. It is hand skived and shaped to be anatomically correct with no stitching lines to rub you raw. This saddle has the adjustable stirrup hanger bar allowing one-inch leathers to be set in one of three positions for rider comfort and for different leg positions from dressage to moderate jumping.  A super trail or endurance saddle that looks and performs great on all breeds and sizes of horses and mules allowing you to sit back and eat up the miles.

The Officer Brown with Black Seat


The rear loop is for holding up your stirrups and girth when your saddle is not in use.  Saddle is displayed with ENGLISH leathers. 


What about the blocking? The blocking on the Officer is designed to burry your knee into.  As your horse acts horsy you can secure your seat by digging your knee into the blocking.  This is great for down hill, as you can secure your leg (the knee-femur to hip) thus keeping your seat in the saddle.  This blocking also keeps your leg in position, allowing you to ride with a long leg. Super for training young stock.
