Old Timer Saddles, custom made by eli miller


This a a beautiful Custom Old Timer. It features a 16 inch suspended seat. Air Ride deluxe, so comfortable. This saddle has a 5 inch cantle and bucking rolls for the extra security out on those tough trails. We had it made with both front and back rigging and a centerfire rigging can be used as well. The color just shines with its rich chestnut finish and deep black seat, pencil roll an bucking rolls. I love the barbed wire edge combined with the basket stamping. Just a standout. This saddle also has the rolled stirrup leathers. It makes such a great difference on your knees. No more twisting and searching for the stirrup, they stay right where they need to be. All of my personal saddle feature the rolled leathers and I love them. Overall, the saddle just speaks of quality. The Old Timer Saddles are a favorite of ours and many others.  In the time honored cowboy tradition, they are built on an A fork Tree with the half moon shaped pommel and feature a deep seat with a high cantle.  They have that western look and style but are still lightweight {26 lb) and easy to handle. There are plenty of rings and dees for all of your saddlebags, breast collars and such.  The trees are custom made by Batie Custom Tree Company.  They feature his trademark flared bars that offer more room in the shoulder than traditional trees. We really like using these tree as our horses perform so much better.


If you wish to Custom Order your own Old Timer, the options are endless with this model.  You can choose the suspended tree or the western regular tree with the option of a padded or slick seat  You can choose your conchos, tooling, add bucking rolls and remove the horn.  Want to add some style?  You can put inlays in the leather to add your unique look.  Want even more bling?  You can add rhinestones, colored conchos and exotic skins.  Check out some of the photos of the options available.  *Remember, these options are available on most of the Custom Eli Miller Saddles upon a custom order. 

We use our Old Timer daily in our training program.  I need a good saddle that would fit everything from gaited horses, to stock breeds to anything in between.  I chose the Old Timer for the looks, security of the seat, light weight and wanted the suspended seat for  my comfort.  I loaded photos below.  It has the rawhide trim.
