As a saddlemaker I am always in need for saddle strings whether I am making a saddle or repairing a saddle. I was buying saddle strings from a leather company but after finding them at Jeffers I will not go anywhere else from now on. The saddles strings are very high quality and made from premium latigo leather. You can get them in black or burgandy. I have never purchased the black ones but they are available. They only come in one size and that is the 72". These are a good size for your saddles so you can tie on your goods. You can also cut them down if they are too long for your taste. Very fair price for the quality of the leather. I usually purchase them by the dozen. Every horse owner should have some of these around.
