Opinions that Count

"The New Jim Taylor Ken Wold Cowhorse Saddle has the rigging and tree to fit the modern day Horse. Jim’s new seat and swell make the rider feel that you can be a part of the horse and really feel secure when performing a fence run. Your seat, feet and body are in the proper position when performing any part of a working cow horse run. Whether it be cutting, reining, or fence work. And lastly, a person can ride it all day long because of it’s extreme comfort. I am very excited about this saddle and I’m proud to recommend it to any level rider!"

"I’ve been riding Jim Taylor saddles for 15 years and the quality is unsurpassed. It’s the most comfortable saddle I’ve ever ridden. Every time I get a new saddle it feels and rides the same as the previous one."

What Our Customers are Saying

"Dear God, Jim, the saddle is gorgeous! It took 3 of my closest friends to convince me that I got it to ride in and I had to take it out of my living room. I will be posting and tagging you but I had to tell you personally. It’s beyond my expectations. As soon as I opened it last night, I was in awe. I rode in it today (actually everyone at my barn did because no one has ever had a brand new custom saddle🤣). I was so thrilled that it felt and fit exactly like the JT/ Rocky Dare that I’ve been riding in. My 3 year old bucked once and it was the same secure seat. It’s perfect. Everyone was standing around admiring it. You are wonderful!💕"

“I wanted to let you know Kelly and I did our inaugural ride on my new saddle today!...we both LOVE the saddle. It is SO comfy! We both thought so, right off the bat. I think it fits RB well, too….I think the combination of casual leather/nice unique silver touches is perfect….The bubbles are great and I especially got a kick out of the bubbles on the little conchos on the underside of the pommel….Thanks for such a careful, quality job."

Patti - Ariel, Washington

"I received my new saddle and absolutely love it! It looks great on my horse, is comfortable to ride in. I am super happy with my purchase."

Marla, Monroe - Washington

"I wanted to give a big shout out to Jim Taylor for working with me on a custom saddle order since January. Jim has been endlessly patient, detailed, and incredibly friendly even sending line item quotes and saddle specs so I could review every line and the associated cost. If only I could get my mortgage refinance guy half as organized, detailed and accurate dot dot dot all post pics once Jim finishes the saddle, let's just say I can't wait! Silver is from my favorite maker John Mincer."
