Lynn McKenzie Special"
saddles are hand made in Yoakum, TX by Double J Saddlery on fiberglass
covered and reinforced wood trees.
American tanned Herman Oak skirting leather is used along
with stainless steel hardware.
Customizing is easy with a wide variety of hand tooling
patterns, and seat and rawhide colors to choose from.
Standard features include cut-away skirts for closer
contact, biothane stirrup leathers, polished aluminum stirrups,
and Montana Silversmiths accents.
The saddles are hand oiled for a beautiful finish, and come
The rigging is the key to the way this saddle fits.
The uniquely designed hardware is hung on biothane
straps attached to the front and back of the bars.
The saddle can be rigged in: the front slots only (7/8 rig);
a "V" using both slots (3/4 rig); or in the back slots only
(almost a "center fire" rig).
It sits back further than what has been common, taking
pressure off of the shoulders and withers.
By eliminating pressure points (which show up as dry spots
when the saddle is removed), we allow the horse to move more
comfortably under the saddle.
This is a

But as you
can see even the basic saddle looks pretty nice, especially when
you consider that you have a choice of
seat colors, rawhide colors, and
There are many, many options available to either dress up or
dress down your new saddle. Nowhere else will you find a
company willing to build saddles like this, AND ship your saddle
this quickly. (Normally 4 to 6 weeks!)
Options like your choice of seat styles, colors, conchos,
rawhide colors, tooling patterns, leather colors, horn styles, and
finishes, and the list just keeps going on.
An example of
how "Fancy" they can get.
Small Floral tooling and a double border painted black along with
Black Rawhide horn and Silver Laced cantle. The seat and corner
inlay is Black Metallic Stingray and is complete with Crystal
Flower conchos #452.
The above saddle has the new
STINGRAY seat. Stingray seats
are Lynn's personal preference now. Although Stingray and Ostrich
do cost more, the difference they makes in wear ability more than
makes up for the extra cost. They just don't show wear or
fade like the suede seats do. Also available in semi-quill
Ostrich. Same great qualities but at a lesser cost .
Lynn orders either Stingray or semi-quill Ostrich in her personal
