Product Description

The Rancher Saddle is a great looking, fantastic fitting saddle for the mule and rider – straight from Steve Edwards and a part of the Steve Edwards Signature Series mule and donkey saddles.

This saddle has been designed and tested by Steve Edwards to ensure it meets his top quality standards. The mule bars were designed by Steve and he has used them since 1981 – they have stood the test of time. Each saddle comes with a 5-Year workmanship warranty. The Rancher Saddle is made in America and bares the Queen Valley Mule Ranch emblem, ensuring you have invested in the best.

The Rancher Saddle is built “extra tough” to stand up to rugged, everyday use and built Steve’s tested mule bars. The wood trees in this saddle is covered with fiberglass coating. Because of the heavy-duty materials and construction used to manufacture this mule saddle it weighs in a 42lbs.

The saddle uses imitation fleece lined skirt which has been adopted based upon Steve’s 45 years of riding. Wool has no better wear than the imitation lining and offers a longevity equal to that of wool. Wool was originally used by cowboys because saddles were never paired with blankets.

Will This Saddle Fit My Mule?

You want to know if a saddle is going to be a good fit which is why every Steve Edwards saddle comes with a saddle fitting video to help you place your saddle, britchen, breast collar and cinches in the correct position. It’s free with each saddle. If you do have problems, call Steve and he’ll help you out!

Saddle Stirrups

While some riders prefer their own stirrups, Steve Edwards stirrups can be purchased for an additional charge. Steve recommends Tapaderos as the safest stirrup. In addition, Queen Valley Mule Ranch offers top of the line leather covered stirrup.

Features

  • Mule and donkey designed rigging plate
  • Fleece lined skirt
  • Comes with nylon front & rear tie straps. (Cinches not included).
  • Stainless Steel Hardware
  • Stamping designs available – contact Steve here for pricing.
  • 5-Year Warranty

Nylon Tie Straps Included with Your Saddle

Each saddle comes with 4 nylon tie straps. Some customers ask about replacing the tie straps with billets and we strongly discourage this. The cinches need to be balanced and centered which is why we ship with nylon tie straps. Billets do not allow for the cinches to be centered and as a result, the saddle will roll and not be balanced. Billets result in the cinch being higher on one side than the other.

Recommended Accessories

  • Breast Collar
  • Britchen
  • Stirrups – Tapaderos
  • Stirrups – Leather Covered

Steve ALWAYS recommends using a britchen and breast collar regardless if you’re on flat ground or mountains. You have to remember that you’re riding a mule bone structure (which is a donkey bone structure) and your saddle will go forward due to the donkey V shape in the shoulders – this explains the saddle riding forward.

    I purchased the Rancher Saddle and am very happy with it. Very comfortable, good looking and fits my mule well. Steve is a pleasure to do business with and clearly cares about his customers being happy with his products.

    Saddle slides back going up hill puts excessive pressure on the Brest coller. It rubbed sores on my mules chest on a 3 day hunt. I used all stave’s gear breast coller saddle blanket cinches, all his gear. If you don’t ride vary steep country you will be fine but if you ride the Rockies you will not be happy. I Evan got white spots on my mules using his saddle pads and The pack pads. I don’t say this because I don’t like Steve because I do I’m just telling you how his gear worked for me.
