15" J. Willemsma Saddle (LJ's Saddlery)

In Stock and Ready for Immediate Shipment!


If you are looking at this listing, you probably already know that John Willemsma saddles are hard to find and highly desirable.  Their reputation is excellent and will certainly be top of the list for collectors in years to come.

This saddle was made by Willemsma for FM Browns tack store in Sinking Springs, PA.  FM Browns went out of business about 15 years ago.  Willemsma made this saddle when his shop was in Guthrie, OK. His shop is currently in Westcliffe, CO.  I do not know which tree is in this saddle. Possibly will james.  I believe you can reach out to Willemsma for exact specs on this saddle.
