About Us

 
OZWEST was created in Australia in 1996 by Geoff and Tina Hutson.
Geoff is a fully qualified saddlemaker, having started his apprenticeship in 1969. After many years of running his own custom saddlemaking business, he felt there was a need for a line of saddles that fitted in-between the cheaper production line saddles and the top end custom saddles.
The criteria was set to make a saddle that was lightweight , super high quality. well fitting for both horse and rider and fit in to the mid price range.
After a lot of research and a year of designing, OZWEST saddles became a reality.
OZWEST saddles have now become one of the most popular saddles in Australia and plans are underway to soon launch them in the U.S.A.
 
 OUR SADDLES
All of our OZWEST saddles are hand made and are of the highest quality. We take pride in our workmanship and finish to each saddle.
We give great consideration to the fact that buying a saddle can be a big expense and it is our objective to make sure you are happy with your purchase.
 
OUR TREES
All of our OZWEST saddles are built on our own design tree.
The tree is made of reinforced polyurethane which we guarantee for 5 years [ to original purchaser ]
The seat lengths are 15 1/2" and 16"
The gullet width is set for semi quarter horse but we can adjust this for wider horses.
 
OUR LEATHER
We import and use " WESTAN " leathers exclusively on our saddles.
We believe this to be the finest quality available in the U.S.A.
The leather has many great characteristics which will ensure that your saddle will last a lifetime.
