Standard Smooth Seat: Smooth seat leather is vat-dyed for long-lasting color that won't rub off. Smooth seat leather allows your hips to freely move with your horse. Comes standard with no additional charge.

Standard Fender: Fenders come standard hanging straight down. Due to the high-quality full grain leather we use, break-in period is fairly short. Stirrups are easy to pick up with your feet due to the forward placement of the fenders. Some prefer stirrups that are pre-turned, which we can do for you.
CA Twist (pre-turned fenders): We can pre-turn the fenders for you by softening and turning the leather and then wrapping the fender rigging with soft leather to hold it in place. The wrapping can be taken off once fully broken-in. Additional cost is $30.
