We had a wonderful visit with horse clinician Samantha Harvey Thursday morning here in the shop/barn!!  It is so refreshing and encouraging to meet another clinician who believes in the importance of getting a horse comfortable and balanced with correct fitting tack, balanced teeth, feet and health through as many natural choices as possible.  This builds trust which leads to a great partnership and fun for both horse and rider.  

I hope to someday have the opportunity to take some lessons with Samantha, we were very impressed with her philosophies and on how she approaches teaching etc.!  I would highly recommend checking her out if you dont already know about her! http://www.learnhorses.com/ & https://www.facebook.com/alternativeHorsemanship/?pnref=lhc

This is a perfect example of the difference a custom herb program using Equine Natural Care herb blends can make towards balancing an animal in 2 months!!
*Contact Terri if you would like an evaluation and herb program set up for your equine!
Here is what Elaine Allen says about her experience with Serena after Serenas evaluation and herb program...Serena is back to being her old self on the trail. She keeps up and sometimes leads. If she is around other horses, she is ready to go. She has always been this way, it is a mare thing. She had lost all this spunk and interest in anything, it is nice to have her back. She is 24 and we have been riding almost everyday. I noticed her cinch has moved up (smaller). She is probably the trimmest she has ever been.

Estella was recently asked to make a piece of artwork for the cover of a new CD called Heartsong by our very talented musical friend Will Dudley. 
She chose to make it here in the shop out of leather. Her only specs were to include the Welcome to Colorful Colorado entry sign. 
After the CD went to print, Estella entered the original piece in our local Archuleta County Fair, and won the Grand Champion prize in her division!!! (Professional Arts and Crafts.) 
Leather is a super versatile medium. Feel free to contact us if you have a unique project idea you want created!

We are so excited to share with you our first Hawaiian Vaquero Wade Saddle! Bob & Estella had a great time designing the rawhide awe awe (ahvee ahvee) rigging in their own unique style. This saddle was made for Lizzie Immarino in Maui, Hawaii! Tooling is based on a lei made out of maile leaves. Bob had wanted to make a saddle with a rawhide awe awe ever since he started saddle making in 1996! Thank you Lizzie for giving us this fun opportunity!!

Emily Ruth Barker, what size seat did you end up with, I think Terri had said it was a 13"? Just curious as I see yours has the inlaid seat and I need to decide (about 5 minutes ago!) if I want the inlaid seat or smooth...leaning toward this option, as I love the look but also want comfort, of course! Thanks in advance for your help!!!

I am seriously interested in having another set of these made for myself. Was wondering if it would be possible to add in black for the fringe.

I've had mine for 16 years now! They get used hand and still look and wear great! Great investment and great people!

Would these look ok on a person with a thicker waist? I wear a 31 ladies Jean.

We have this mohair blend breast collar for sale at a special price of $95.00 instead of our usual $120.00.  This was a special order in which there was a miscommunication with color.  I can just see it in a 4th of July Parade!

This is a cool pair of batwings that we made for a Canadian horseman who will be spending a whole lot of time way out in the back country mountains. 
These have elk antler conchos that we made here in the shop, and are designed to be extra rugged and durable. The elk and bighorn tooling was super fun!

is this still available?

Whoever is lucky enough to get this saddle will not regret it! I love my OWS so much and only had to wait a few months to get it (lucky me!). How awesome it's going to be for somebody to get the saddle without having to wait for it to be made! You're welcome to message me for a reference or questions about the amazing quality and comfort of these saddles.

I have some custom made chaps from OWS, made in 2006, still fit and still going strong, fantastic workmanship, very helpful lovely people, highly recommended and if I could afford it I would buy this in a flash!

I've commissioned work from Outwest & the standard is second to none. This looks like a very nice saddle I'm quite envious of however gets this.

Had a wonderful chat with Terri yesterday, and have started the order process for mine... So very excited!!!

William Pallister- see? this is a REAL gorgeous plain saddle. I will own this gem one day.

Stunning piece, very beautifull work (admirer from the uk :-))

Love my OWS...whoever gets this saddle is going to have years of riding pleasure!

Totally worth it!!! I love mine!
Rides like a dream!!

That is truly beautiful!

measuring my boy this week, will see if this will fit or he needs a different size!

Wow this is beautiful!!

Beautiful, unusual foggy morning at Out West Saddlery! Bobs horse Cracker and our flock of wild turkeys...

What a team! Cassidy Kruse, JJ and Equine Natural Care!  We are looking forward to following her success in 2016!! 
*If you would like to have a happier, healthier horse by feeding a unique herb program the horse chooses through kinesiology (muscle testing from mane hair sample) feel free to call Terri at Out West Saddlery 800-863-6405 to learn more.

Out West Saddlery shared Equine Natural Care's photo.

Out West Saddlery

Congratulations Cassidy!!! This is why I am so proud to be part of the Equine Natural Care team!! I am a distributor for Equine Natural Care, I do evaluations of horses from mane hair samples sent to me using kinesiology and help people and their horses get similar results. The training, continuing education and products are bar none! My horse and mule are healthier and happier than they have ever been on a simple feed and herb program.In early November of 2015, Equine Natural Care, started working with Cassidy Kruse, the 2015 5th place WNFR World Champion Barrel Racer, and her entire team of horses. Below is her story, it speaks for itself... www.equinenaturalcare.com, 405-818-6510

Before I started using the products from Equine Natural Care and Neprofin AVF by Arthur Andrew Medical, I noticed that JJ and Scooter were almost looking sick. Their hair was dull and had no bloom, they had no muscle content, their lungs were rattily, they had no energy to hardly lope circles, and were not alert to much around them. I was getting ready to leave for my first WNFR and I knew that if I didn’t do something that JJ would probably not hold up all 10 rounds. On November 14th, 2015 I took a huge step and started my horses on the Equine Natural Care all-natural herbs along with Arthur Andrew’s Neprofin and waited to see results. Within just TWO days I could tell that JJ and Scooter both had their bloom back, were alert again, and were starting to shine! At this point I was very excited knowing that the products were working so quickly. After five days of them being on the products and still riding them, the rattle in their lungs had gone away and they were back to riding like their normal selves and felt powerful and ready to go. On November 21st I took JJ and Scooter to a barrel race and while there I did not hear any rattle in their lungs and they both ran really well. Although of course I ran into another problem. JJ slipped going around a barrel and we saw some swelling in his stifles. The concern started all over again with now only a week to leave for the finals. On November 22nd I was sent some of the Equine Muscle Aid by Equine HerbGirl and we rubbed it all over JJ’s hind end where his muscles were strained. We kept doing that all the way up to the finals and during the finals and within days the swelling was going down and he was not taking a lame step or short in his stride. Throughout competing at the NFR I feel like JJ only got stronger while being on the products. He held up great, never sounded weak in the lungs, was always alert, and felt like a power house instead of getting wore out after the long stressful days in Vegas! When we got home, the plan was to keep JJ and Scooter going on their instructed herbs. Trying to get Scooter more in shape and ready to go for the 2016 year can be stressful and nerve racking for him so we started using a custom calming spray from Equine HerbGirl to ease the nerves. Spraying that on his chest before riding him or using him calms him right down where he can focus more instead of getting hot while trying to ride. With my horses only being on the program just right at about a couple months I can see so much change it’s unreal! They both are stronger than they have EVER been since I have owned them. I feel that with the way they are feeling I am going to have to hang on because they are more ready to go then they have ever been! Without Equine Natural Care I don’t know if I would’ve been able to have as good as finals as I did or even have both of my horses going as strong right now. It was a big leap of faith taken by my family as well as everyone involved with Equine Natural Care and I am very thankful for what has transpired for my horses and myself! ... See MoreSee Less

We wanted to share this heart warming saddle testimonial with a special story behind the horn cap! Thank you Beth for being given the honor of being chosen to help you and your horse and in memorializing your daughter Justine!

I can't say enough about how happy I am with my beautiful saddle made by Out West Saddlery. Each time I ride my horse CL in it, he gets better. I think he is realizing how much better it feels!

His long trot makes me weep it is so effortless. The biggest difference is when I ask him to lope he is much more rounded and smoother than before. I ride in a bosal hackamore and while he has always been soft he is now "giving" with a lot less effort when I pick up on him. He has a great side-pass and back-up and now they are even better. I think it has to be because his shoulders are freed up as all our lateral movements seem more fluid. I am itching to work cows to see how that feels.

While I am still getting used to the seat, it is for sure more comfortable and I LOVE the closer contact. Now I realize that my other saddles had me in the wrong position. In this saddle I feel like I am more in unison with CL and that my position is making it easier for him to move & respond.

As I told you, I lost my daughter, Justine, to cancer in April. I raised her by myself and she was my best friend. I had been trying to think of a way to honor her and when I decided to get one of your saddles, I thought maybe you could do something special. The “J” inside the heart tooling on the horn to memorialize Justine really brings the whole thing together and is so representative of her simple beauty. When she rode CL, he took exquisite care of her and remembering them together are some of my fondest memories. It is pretty cool that she can be “with” me every time I ride. It means the world that you understood my vision for that.

I think what sets you apart from other saddle-makers is the attention to detail. Not only for the rider, but more importantly for the horse. In this crazy world of mass production, it is rare to find a company that truly cares. Sure, there are other pretty saddles, but yours are works of art from the inside out.

Thank you so much!!!

Fun Fact From Equine Natural Care!
AVOCADO FOR YOUR HORSES?...MAYBE NOT
Horses can safely eat many fruits and vegetables, but in the case of some innocent-seeming produce, the ingestion of even a few pieces can cause a serious toxic reaction. One such fruit is theavocado, a large berry that is found in some southern states as well as in Mexico and other CentralAmerican countries.The fleshy dark-green fruits grow on trees and are cultivated commercially in areas with tropicalclimates. When the trees grow where animals are pastured, or when grazing is allowed in an avocadoorchard, horses may eat the fallen fruit and become seriously ill. Some affected horses die, even withsupportive veterinary care.Persin, a substance derived from fatty acids contained in avocados, is believed to be the toxinresponsible for health problems in horses and other animals that eat the fruit. In horses that ingestavocados, the toxin can cause colic, irregular heartbeat, respiratory distress, neurologic dysfunction,edema, and other signs of illness.Horse owners should not feed avocados to their horses, and should not allow the animals to graze inareas where they might have access to avocados. As well as the fruit, avocado tree leaves and barkare said to be harmful, and horses turned out on poor pasture might be tempted to eat these parts ofthe tree if they don’t have access to other forage.Source: Equinews:
