DK Saddlery now has beautiful saddle covers for their western saddles.  They are fleece lined with a nylon exterior and of course the DK Logo.  All new DK western saddles will come with one.  We also have black covers with no logos for sale.

The client that you adjusted a used DK for when you were here just got home and rode in the saddle for the first time today (Feb 2) She is so happy and excited!  She has tried about 50 saddles over the last year and was always sore and uncomfortable.  I kept telling her to get a DK and she finally did... She is in love with it and was not sore at all.  Thanks so much for being great!  And always giving us amazing customer service.  You have another happy customer.  Much appreciated.

DK Cutter Saddle - Cory McAllister - Cinch Performance Horshmanship

Well very pleased to let everyone know that DK Sponsored Rider (and son) Cory McAllister just had a fabulous weekend in Smithers BC competing in a trainers challenge.  There were 3 trainers and 3 unbroke - straight out of the field 2 year old quarter horses.  Cory drew a chestnut filly.  She turned out to be the toughest of the bunch.  Very touchy/waspy as well as having a real red headed attitude!  He did a fabulous job.  What was most interesting is Cory's filly was the only one that would stand for saddling and mounting.  The others got worse as the sessions went by.  Cory's never experienced pain from the saddle, a DK Cutter.  Cory was able to adjust the bars of his saddle so it didn't pinch or put pressure in the wrong area. Cory didn't win the competition but did win the finals hands down. c here


DK Saddlery @ a Show

Julia came out to adjust my new saddle last night.  I told her after 3 years of trying saddles on my poor mares back I should have just bought the damn DK.  She laughed and told me to tell you "Should have just bought the damn DK" new tagline for you LOL.  Loving it!

Saddle Fitting for The 20th century

                      Saddle Fitting with DK Saddlery
             With Master Saddle Fitter Danny Kroetch
                            Written by Amy C. Barton
DK Saddlery is all about adjustability. That one word, adjustability, sums up everything that DK Saddlery believes in. Danny Kroetch is a world renowned Master Saddle Fitter and designer. The success of his saddle designs is based on the fact that an adjustable fit is incorporated into every saddle the company builds. Danny believes that saddles which do not have the ability to be fit asymmetrically to a horse’s withers cannot ever truly fit. That may sound confusing, but read on to gain a deeper understanding of saddle fit.

Western saddle testimonial from Wade Remple Calgary Stampede Pickup man for 26 years

Dk Saddlery approached me 2 years ago to try one of their saddles. After using it for 2 years on multiple horses I quite like the way I can make it fit on any of my horses. Anybody that has different shaped horses would like this saddle as it will fit all of them. It is easy to adjust and the airbags are good for sore backed horses. I would recommend this saddle to anyone looking for a quality custom made saddle.

I love Danny's saddles for my horse and myself. First, as far as your horse is concerned, you cannot do better than being able to adjust and customize the angle and contact of your saddle's bars to your horse. That's what Danny Kroetch saddle's offer--a marvelous, unique feature of adjustable bars. The air cushioning under the fleece then cinches the deal, giving you a perfect fit. Then you get to sit in a perfectly balanced saddle! That's when you realize how many badly adjusted saddles you've been riding in.
