Western saddle testimonial from Wade Remple Calgary Stampede Pickup man for 26 years

Dk Saddlery approached me 2 years ago to try one of their saddles. After using it for 2 years on multiple horses I quite like the way I can make it fit on any of my horses. Anybody that has different shaped horses would like this saddle as it will fit all of them. It is easy to adjust and the airbags are good for sore backed horses. I would recommend this saddle to anyone looking for a quality custom made saddle.

I love Danny's saddles for my horse and myself. First, as far as your horse is concerned, you cannot do better than being able to adjust and customize the angle and contact of your saddle's bars to your horse. That's what Danny Kroetch saddle's offer--a marvelous, unique feature of adjustable bars. The air cushioning under the fleece then cinches the deal, giving you a perfect fit. Then you get to sit in a perfectly balanced saddle! That's when you realize how many badly adjusted saddles you've been riding in.

Testimonial from another long time happy customer

By Heather Thomas
#1 is my DK FREEDOM SADDLE. I bought this saddle
soon after I bought Marcus when he was 4 or 5. At the
time I had to wear a wide leather weight lifter’s support

Julie Houle - Happy Customer

Julie Houle in her new DK Bond - Mare is finally sound, so first ride in new saddle - OH MY GOD as good as she's been in a borrowed DK, incredible.  You sir, are a genius.
