Materials Used

The Leathers used in our bridles and leather halters. Each product ad describes the leather used. Drum Dyed (DD) Buffalo leather and fine grain cow leather are used (cow softy). Buffalo leather is a stronger leather than Cow hide and is a soft and supple leather. Cow softy is very fexible and soft to the touch.

Elite Saddles are made from a variety of materials. Each product ad describes the leather used. We use high quality drum dyed buffalo leather, Argentinian and English leather and some saddles are made from a synthetic leather and synthetic suede. All materials are selected based on their strength, durability and quality. The saddle trees are made from a moulded Synthetic tree which keeps the saddle light weight for you and your horse.

Any silver fittings used on our Bridles, Halters and Saddles are made on a Brass sheet. Once the frames are cut out for the individual items silver polish is added giving the products a lovely shine.

‚ÄčAll of the other product I have are made from the highest quality materials avaliable.
