Age Before Beauty
Similar to classic cars, cast iron skillets, or even certain types of cheese… Best Ever Custom Saddle Pads only get better with age. Yes of course, like anything else you use everyday wear and tear is bound to happen. However, we believe it is that wear and tear that makes each pad so special and unique. For example, a pad showed up in our shop last week from 2017! and trust me it was WELL-LOVED. Even though it is easy to point out the obvious flaws in a pad that has been used every day for the past four years, I only saw its beauty. That pad has seen many rodeos, been through many states, and has been on the backs of champions in the heat of competition!
Ripped seams, worn leather, and hair coated these pads are filled with history that cannot be replaced. Whether it was your first horse purchase, your son or daughter’s first pony ride, or your first buckle, Best Ever was there soaking up every memory. We were there through all the pack trips, the brandings, and ranch rodeos that provided stories at the dinner table for many years, and many more to come. We hope that every time you buy a new pad to replace the old you take some time to appreciate the unique life it lived under your saddle.
