Hi Sue-
This saddle is made by American Saddlery, a division of Foxwood, which is a
division of Eiser's. I also own a black Bona Allen. I believe Foxwood/Eiser's
just bought Bona Allen recently. Black western tack is very popular here in
New England for saddlebreds and arabs. I show a stock type Pinto on the NE
Pinto circuit with black tack, and we're #1 Novice Amateur and #3 Amateur,
so I can't say the judges don't like it. I specifically purchased the black
American saddle for my all white horse, I have pale skin, blue eyes, and
near black hair, my outfits are based on black and blue themes, and the total
effect is quite striking. I had Dale Chavez in CA custom make me a matching
headstall, reins, and ***plate with the rawhide and silver ferrules and
horsehair tassels, so we are very current in style, just not color. I'm
selling the American because I came across the Bona Allen used, all
broken in, reasonably priced, and I don't need two black westerns to show in.
The American is still brand new, and as I ride/show huntseat and
stockseat, and trail ride in a synthetic dressage, I won't ride in it enough
to break it in by just showing in it. It's gorgeous though. Well, I've gone
on long enough, see you! erin
