Cole Custom Saddles | 
Custom Hand Crafted Saddles


We build Wade Saddles on Laporte Saddle Trees. You can choose Cable Rigging or Flat Plate Rigging. We use superior skirting leather, top quality wool skin lining, and some of the best hardware available.

Each saddle is meticulously handcrafted and handsewn. We believe the look, the feel, and the strength of handsewing gives our customers the best stitch available.

The Laporte tree is made of a remarkable carbon fiber material that remains semi-rigid to enhance fit and comfort for you and you horse. The strength of the tree is 3500psi and virtually indestructible.

The Cable Rigging is a one piece continuous loop of vinyl coated cable cast into the tree that remains flexible conforming well to the horse. The strength of the cable is 12 tons! Our saddles are strong, durable and functional.

"My biggest priority was to find a saddle that felt comfortable for both me and my horses but could also take a hit. Sam and Cathy Cole not only exceeded my expectations with their vigorous attention to detail and craftmanship, they also worked with me on every level to make sure that I was completely enamored with the finished product. You don't come across more kind and thoughtful people like these two. I ride lots of horses that vary in size from small to large, and this saddle has sat every single one like a dream! I have no plans of saddling any colts in anything else."
