"I have not really had a chance to let you know how great the chaps turned out! They fit Suzanne just as if you had taken the measurements in your shop.

"Did you get the email and photo from my cell phone today? Zookie and I LOVE the saddle. It is so comfy and I feel like I can't possibly fall out of it.....Zookie tried to buck me off today and I didn't budge!  Thanks Marc Oliver Saddlery!" - Eric Mailman, Horseman

Hey Marc, I know I already said it but I wanted to let you know how much I love my saddle! I took it out again this weekend and it is so amazing to sit in such a centered saddle. I know my riding position will get better and better since the saddle supports a centered seat. AND it is so comfortable!  Plus the saddle did not roll like all the others I’ve tried. Sangria has no withers and is very difficult to fit and I’m so happy to know she’s comfortable and that the saddle stays in place. It was so nice to not have the cinch super tight in order to keep if from rolling. The outing went even better after I ran into an old friend on the trail and when I got off my horse she gasped and exclaimed how gorgeous my saddle was. She loved the intricate detail and thoughtful artistic quality that went into it. So I’ve got it all! A saddle that fits my hard-to-fit horse, a comfortable saddle that puts me in the right position, and last but not least – it is so beautiful I am proud to go anywhere with it!-Candace Strope, Trail Rider

Here's a picture of my husband in his fabulous new chaps, riding the morning of his birthday. He absolutely loves them! And they fit him perfectly. He doesn't like to take them off. He puts them on just to feed the horses!I asked him if he was going to sleep in them, to which he replied..."maybe".Anyway, just wanted to say thanks again.-Rachel Prather

Marc, I just wanted to let you know that with my new saddle, chinks and hat my horse and I couldn't be cuter.  I want you to know how happy I am with everything you've done for me, thank you so, so much. - Karen Scalf

Marc got my saddle today and I have to say you're as good as they say you are!  This saddle is remarkable, beyond my highest expectations.  It will be a treasured part of my collection for many years to come, thank you again. - Todd McCane

Mr. Oliver,  I wanted to write to tell you how much I have enjoyed looking at your artistry. 
I found your website through a Western Horseman ad and to say I was blown away
with your website would be an understatement. I am a graphic designer and artist
by trade so I can appreciate the quality of not only your leather work but also
with your website. I have always loved beautiful authentic cowboy gear and yours
is some of the best I have seen. Seeing your stuff has made me want to put off
buying anything else and just save my money to invest in one of your pieces of
I also wanted to compliment you in the graphic design of your website. So many
times I have gone to websites of craftsmen that did beautiful work but their ads
and website were so poor that it distracted me from wanting me to buy anything
from them. Your site is easy to navigate, enhances the beauty of your work and I
love that the prices are clearly noted.
I look forward to one day doing business with you. If I could I would buy one of
everything you make. Well done sir-Michael, Trail Rider
