The Western Endurance Built on the same tree used in the Express,
Freedom and the Officer, The Western Endurance is the western version built on the endurance tree. This Express
name comes from the lightweight western saddle the pony express used to deliver mail in the 19th century. It is
a western saddle built for action, speed and function with nothing in the way to bind your legs or hold you back. This
is a saddle for the western or distance rider seeking an exceptionally light weight supportive western saddle but who doesn’t
need the western saddle horn. This saddle delivers the rider a secure low slick fork that is anatomically designed allowing
for a fast and easy handgrip. This saddle has a nice secure seat and a sweet pocket that allows you to sit back and enjoy
your ride while you eat up the miles!
