Willow's classic plain 3B

My customer Geoff has a sweet little mare named Willow. He saw a picture of one of my earlier 3B saddles and wanted it so badly that his charming fiance Cassidy had me build it for him for a Christmas present. This is that completely plain classic 3B saddle, with just the letter "C" on the cantle back to commemorate the gift from his fiance.

Visalia-style 3B saddle

I call this a classic 3B because it's inspired by the original 3B saddles made by the Visalia Stock Saddle Company in California in the 1930's. They made the vaquero saddles in those days and established the Visalia style that I'm trying to keep alive today because it's such a good saddle.
