Rachael’s Reining Saddle

Dear Ian and Sue, I am absolutely thrilled with my new reining saddle. It is absolute perfection and a work of art! I can notice such a difference riding in it already. My horse seems a lot more relaxed and happier and having a thick pad and a saddle that has the pressure off his wither has made a huge difference. I have excellent leg contact now and can do lead departures quite effortlessly and he hasn’t carried on once under saddle. The girth set up is great and I can easily do it up whilst I am on him too. It’s also quite light for a Western saddle and I’m not having any problems putting it on. Thank you for fitting my horse at the Toowoomba Equine Expo so we got the fit just right. You both made the process so easy and I highly recommend your saddles to everyone I speak to. I am very very happy!
Kindest regards, Rachael.

Another very nice saddle to come out of the Trails End workshop.
Unique, customised to the riders and horses needs.

To be used as an everyday, all day saddle.

First saddle out of the new workshop.
All round tree, 5″ cantle, 9″ gullet, shorter horn.
Lighter pics are uncoiled, darker is oiled.

Michael wanted a comfortable saddle for some pretty extreme trail riding and wanted to not fall out easily. And she wanted it to be pretty….

Eddy and Ian during the hand over of Trails End saddles.

  IMG_3953 IMG_3952

As most of you are probably aware, Eddy and Maryanne Powell have packed up and moved to Texas!

Ian is fully trained by Eddy and was honoured when they approached him to take on the Trials End brand.

Over the years, Trails End saddles have been made by Maryanne Powell, their son Brodie and since mid to late 2012, Ian Huxley of Blue Creek Saddles.
Ian has worked on and off with Eddy for the last number of years during times of greatest need.

We really appreciated your faith in us Eddy!  It’s nice to know that even if you can’t get an Eddy Powell saddle anymore, you can still get a Trails End saddle – the next best thing.
