The TM Ranch Roper built on a Precision Saddle Tree in one short week by K. Adam Tanner is going to be his next ride. “I love tooling but also like some contrast so I decided on a ½ tooled saddle with rough out hard seat and fenders” says K. Adam Tanner. The saddle, which happens to be his 30th saddle ever completed, was crafted with buffed extra heavy Hermann Oak skirting and features a lightly oiled and antiqued traditional floral pattern. The 1.5” fully tooled Cheyenne Roll cantle with rolled edge binding complements the rough out seat seamlessly. The fully tooled, square skirt features an in-skirt front rigging with a D-Ring back rig. All hardware is from Walsall while all buckles and conchos are from Rockin’ Out Hardware.
Adam said, “After getting pressured a lot from Matt Wanner of Burns Saddlery, I entered this saddle into the World Leather Debut this past May. I received Honorable Mention with my 3rd place achievement. It was a great experience and I know my next entry will be more than twice as good as this last one.” He also made a matching breast collar and headstall for the saddle, both of which are as stunning as the saddle itself.
