    S. D. Myres Sweetwater Texas Manufactured Western Saddle. An early example of the work of famed saddle maker Sam Myres manufactured at his original shop in Sweetwater, Texas. The example on offer features a fully tooled pommel, back housing, skirt, and fenders that support copper reinforced wooden stirrups. The back of the cantle features an intricate basket-weave tooling and the seat is pin-point tooled with an intricate floral pattern. Four leather conchos with tassels adorn each side of the saddle. Brass front and rear rigging dees are mounted at each side. The Myres maker mark is present on the right fender and a sterling horn beautifully crowns this most recognizable of all Western icons. The condition, while showing honest use, is very good with a few scrapes and a gouge in the pommel.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
