Saddle Help
#1
I hope I'm not breaking any forum rules, but I had to share......For those of you stumbling upon this website and forum (as I did) I would like to give a BIG thank you to Chuck and Dale at the saddle shop! [thumbsup]
If you are thinking about a new saddle purchase, I highly recommend!
My nit-picky attention to detail and quality brought me to their website with so many QUALITY saddles and items from which to choose. The e-mails from Chuck with recommendations for saddles, to Dales help with my many questions over the phone (yes, I called and bugged him 4 times, and HE called ME twice) about tree size and fit, made the purchase process and enjoyable one. I love my new Crates Supreme Trail #403-W, (which they didn't carry that exact model, but ordered for me from Crates at no additional charge!) and have been telling everyone about the great site.
BTW, through whatever weird phone line rules (satellite maybe?) Alaska cannot access the 866 toll free line, so some give up. (apparently I was like a dog with a bone though [Smile] )
So thank you, and I appreciated all the patience and help!!

I've been telling everyone about your online shop and ALL that you carry! Even Dan Crates had nothing but great stuff to say about you guys! Between all the products and help at your shop and the help and information from everyone here at the forum.....just the vet and the farrier is "almost" all else I need! [Big Grin]
P.S. The phone company tells me that we are too far north to access the satellite that uses the (866) toll free area code, That explains why we get the, "please check the number dialled" recording. Cryin' shame!
[Smile] I know I will be buying more stuff...I'm addicted!
Thanks again,

I was fortunate enough to visit thesaddleshop last year. I was impressed with the welcome by Chuck and Dale.

I can't say enough about how good their service is. Mrs Hook ordered a Dakota barrel saddle special order 14" seat and it was built and shipped in record time with absolutely No hitch.

Here is a link to the post of my visit. I think I may have to go back to make sure I get the right new saddle for Hookie.

Hook,
All I can say is WOW! Thanks for the link showing your visit to the Saddle Shop, I enjoyed reading the whole thread! I would think that it felt like a kid in a candy store...how did you get out of there without picking up a truckload of goodies? I would LOVE to have a place like that close to here!
I admit that just my experience of a saddle purchase doesn't amount to a big deal to Chuck or Dale, but I was treated with the kind of service that you don't normally get anymore...especially over the phone /e-mail!!

P.S. I gotta tell you, Dale looks just like I pictured [Smile] !

Hi Killybean,

read part of your blog. Moose and dogsleds, thats way cooler than deer turkeys and geese! I have an email sent to Charlie about the Crates 2171. I tried 26" saddle that someone left at the barn for sale, I tried it on him and the back came right even with his hip. Might work since the 2171 is round. We'll see. Thanks for recommending HorseSaddle Shop!

Don't forget to send in to everyone here your pictures of Dillon and your hellos!

I actually did finally order a Dakota Flex Barrel Saddle with FQHB to fit Hookie. Special ordered with rough out fenders and Jockeys only added a couple of weeks to the delivery. Hookie is very pleased.
