"I have been riding Jim Taylor Saddles for over 25 years. Jim's Saddles fit a variety of horses from Arabs to Quarter Horses, in addition to all types of riders. They are very versatile. Taylor saddles are a quality saddle that lasts and looks good for a long time. They are stylish and consistent. Uniquely, Jim stands behind all of his saddles and they are competitively priced and hold their value. These saddles have made it possible for me and my Non Pros to compete at a high level for many years.
