Custom Made Saddles and Leather Accessories

Penticton, B.C., Canada



I bought my first Grant Willis saddle in 2001 after Ainsley bought hers 2 years earlier. Both our saddles fit us and our horses very well, and since they are hand made they are one of a kind. Grant built the saddles exactly the way we want them. It is nice dealing with someone who does a fair bit of riding himself. In 2003 we started BC Horse Vacations (www.bchorsevacations.ca). We immediately bought several Grant Willis saddles, some new, some used. Now in 2009, 6 years later we still have all the saddles and still in excellent condition with just a few minor repairs. The saddles are used hard and stand up to what ever we do. Each of the saddles fits 15 of the 16 horses we have. They don't seem to fit our Percheron. I highly recommend one of Grant's saddles. It will be the last saddle you will buy for yourself.

"Why I chose a Grant Willis Saddle?

I wanted a saddle that FITTED my mare perfectly.

I wanted to be able to CUSTOMIZE the saddle for my comfort as well.

I wanted to be able to choose the color, tooling and accents to create a STYLE of my own.

These were just some of the reasons I chose a Grant Willis Saddle.  It was not easy with all the decisions to make when choosing a custom saddle, but Grant took the time to answer my multiple questions before and during the process.   The care and attention he put into every detail shows.

Grant has made the wait worth my while.  The saddle is unique in appearance with all the tooling and silver accents.  Super comfortable for me on those long rides.  And it fits my mare to a tee; believe me, she would tell you if she did not like it.

I would recommend Grant Willis Saddlery to anyone looking to purchase a custom saddle."

"Anyone who sees this saddle can't believe how well it's built on every small detail. I just stare at it trying to make sense of what patience you have to build such a high quality piece of leather art. I have about 15 other saddles. Two of them are Garcia/Capriola from the 30's and 40's and this saddle makes them look very average. Thanks again for your hard work."
