Marlene’s Special Effx Saddle system replaces the traditional rigid, solid wood saddle tree with her Special Effx saddle tree that form fits each horse’s back, greatly improving the fit and allowing her saddles to fit a wider range of horses. It is like having a custom fitted saddle for each horse that you ride! This barrel saddle uses this tree and has a seat, horn, and swell that are designed to help keep you balanced with your horse.
Grip-Rite skirt liner for grip and form fits your horse’s back with close contact cut skirt. Biothane stirrup leathers for flexibility and less weight. Leather latigo tie straps for longevity and provides some give for your horse’s comfort. All roughout design provides additional grip as you’re riding. Aluminum stirrups with rubber tread for powerful runs. Black suede star-shape bicycle seat. Square silver conchos with stainless steel hardware. All Marlene’s Special Effx Saddles come complete with a full back girth assembly.
Rich chocolate leather is hand tooled with a combination of diamond waffle tooling and lilies, which is accented with copper spots and special Odessa conchos. This model has a very unique skirt, it’s Marlene McRae’s favorite scalloped design with a leg cutout for a close contact feel, built on Marlene McRae’s custom Special Effx tree.
The 7/8 in-skirt rigging reduces weight and bulk under the fenders for a closer contact feel. Other features include a matching back cinch, aluminum stirrups, and brute-cut antique silver conchos.
