Frequently Asked Questions

The saddle that interests me is displayed on your website only in brown.  Do you have a picture of it in black?
  • Most likely, I do.  Please ask.
Can you send me more specific measurements on ________________________?
  • I certainly can send you any measurements you need on any item.
Can I change my order?
  • Yes.  I can always change an order, as long as I have not yet started making it.  So, let me know as soon as possible.
How long will it take me to get my order?
Do you have any items in stock?
  • I will always give a time estimate back to you when you place your order.  It is highly dependent upon how many orders are ahead of yours.  But, in general, most orders are shipped within 2-3 weeks.
  • No.  I make every order as it comes in.
Do you sell the horses, too?
  • I keep a small supply of Breyer horses in stock but sell them only to customers also purchasing a harness(es), as I offer to assemble the harnesses (no charge) directly on the horse.
  • I do not carry a stock of JW horses, but they are easily attainable on ebay.
I have a particular saddle in mind.  Can you make it for me?
Can I change the style of saddle blanket/pad for my saddle?
  • Yes, for military saddles only.  You have your choice of six different styles.  Western saddle blankets are chosen by me to best match the color of your saddle.
The saddle I want to order is only pictured in a different size.  Will it look the same on a larger (smaller) model horse?
  • YES.  The only difference is the size of the saddle.  The only exception is the "Hope Saddle" with regards to the tooling.  The 1:9 scale (Breyer) saddle has a slightly modified tooling pattern due to the smaller area to tool.
The saddle I'd like to purchase is not offered in "Antique Style," and I would like that.  Can I have you "antique" it for me?
  • Yes.  Let me know that is your desire (  For a small extra fee, it can easily be done.
