Why have a custom saddle built by Bear Creek? The reasons are simple, our saddles are built with the individual rider in mind, both in fit and personality. Every element of the saddle is custom fit to ensure a comfortable ride for the horse and rider alike. Not only are they built for comfort on the trail and in the show arena, they are built to stand up to the rigors of the toughest ranch work.
Unlike production saddles, each of our custom saddles are built to your specifications. We rely on direct communication with you the customer to ensure your complete satisfaction. Together we can design and build your one of a kind dream saddle that with proper care will last a life time. Check out our Design Options page, it will help you in making decisions on what you want your custom saddle to look like.
Many riders have a tack room full of saddles that didn't work out. Others are constantly buying and selling saddles in search of just the right one. It doesn't have to be this way. If you do your homework beforehand to truly understand your horse's and your own needs, you can purchase the one saddle that will be a match for you, your horse, and your riding activities. 
We use only stainless hardware. High quality leather, Montana Silver and Cowboy Decor conchos and hardware. We use the highest quality Equi-Fit and Flex trees made by the Steele Saddle Tree Company. Every Steele Tree comes with a five year warranty. Build time is approximately 10 to 12 weeks. Special tree orders may add additional build time due to tree construction time

A good saddle is not determined by style or brand but by construction, condition and proper fit. A horse will indeed cut more efficiently, lope more consistintently, travel farther and remain sound longer when his saddle accommodates his construction and allows his back to function correctly
