CCI Model Cutter Custom Saddle
CCI Model Cutter Custom Saddle
Saddles are built to order and take 8-10 weeks to ship
This custom cutting saddle is built for performance and reliability. Built in the style of a traditional BW cutter, this saddle is perfect for all your cutting needs but is also comfortable enough to take out on the trail.
The saddle features a standard, aluminum, cutting horn with 1-1/2” cap, atop a cutter style swell/fork. We’ve added our manufacturer’s strength upgrades to both the horn and swell/fork for added strength and reliability. The horn is built using a 4-piece construction, and is hand-sewn. The swell/fork cover features a two-piece construction with side welts, and is finished with pinking both and the front and rear underside, secured with escutcheon pins.
The saddle is rigged, for added strength, using a traditional hanging-dee style rigging. The front riggings are hung in the 7/8 position, however we can hang the rigging in either the full-double or ¾ position if desired. This saddle utilizes a 3” dee at the front and a 2-1/2” dee at the rear.
The skirts are square with rounded corners, and feature a close cut under the fenders for greater control. They are lined with sheep’s wool (pictured in golden but available in black), for a more traditional style. The skirts are laced at the rear and fastened to the tree bars utilizing tugs. We’ve double stitched the skirts on this model and the breastcollar dees are secured through the skirts, for long wear, and greater durability.
A rear housing tops the skirts at the rear of the saddle for a nice finished look. The rear housing is featured rough-out and is a 3-piece construction cut to match the rear profile of the skirts.
The seat is a full hard seat with a deeper belly for a more traditional cutter look. The seat jockey is rough-out leather for better control while cutting.
This saddle features a lower profile 3” Cantle with Cheyenne roll cantle binding. (pictured, a Pencil-roll binding is available upon request). Our cantle bindings are always hand sewn for a cleaner look, and for durability. The binding is 1-1/2” standard but wider cantle bindings are available upon request.
The fenders are an 18” slender-style fender, with rough-out leather for better grip and control, and Blevins Buckle attachment. Our standard full leathers are 66” long, and we custom fit each pair of fenders to the saddle to ensure maximum adjustability for the model and fender length. The fenders are riveted and sewn for greater strength and reliability. (shorter or longer fenders available upon request) Cal-twist is standard on all our fender options. (No twist available upon request)
The stirrups are a Nettles brand wood stirrup with leather covered footbeds. They are laced under the tread using latigo lacing. Leather stirrup hobbles are included on all our models.
A single front latigo strap (84” x 1-3/4”) is included on the left side, with a standard (36” x 1-3/4”) off-billet on the right side, for rigging the front girth (not included), and a rear billet and flank cinch (included) are utilized at the rear. We’ve used heavy-duty Horseshoe brand flank buckles on this model, and the billets and flank cinch are latigo backed, doubled and stitched, all for added strength.
This saddle features dual latigo carriers at the front, a single cinch carrier at the right cantle corner, and a six-string set up with clip & dee attachment. Our leather rosettes are tooled and topped with 1-1/2” metal conchos for a clean, finished look.
The saddle (as pictured) features a complex border tooling. This tooling style typically includes complex border on the swell/fork, seat, skirts, rear housing, fenders, cantle binding and cinch pockets. Multiple tooling styles are available on this model.
Our saddles utilize 14/15 oz. skirting leather, and latigo. All hardware is stainless steel.
