NO TWO HIDES OF LEATHER ARE THE SAME. IMPORTANT.

 

Its important that we know that no two hides of leather are the same. If you order a saddle in brown and then order another saddle in brown several months later its possible that the shades dont 100% match. If you need a saddle to match another or a certain piece of equipment such as a bridle or girth, please tell us when ordering your saddle so we can check the hides currently available. 

Leather shades dont significantly change as easy to change from super light brown to dark, but they do slightly have a different tone. 

Black is always black and White is always white! Special colours also vary from time to time but less than traditional.
