Last week, I told you that I was finally going to assemble my Boz Saddle Kit. (No affiliation!)
Here is that link that tells about the Boz saddle...
As you know, I love my Boz saddle. The attributes are perfect for the way I like to ride… I feel totally secure. I always seem to default to my Boz – no matter how many saddles I try. Mine is 14 years old and looks brand new.
But, I wanted a new Boz to use on Bodhi or Rojo as their own saddle.
I couldn’t afford a regular Boz saddle … but I could afford the Saddle Kit!
(You assemble it yourself.)
Well, I did it!
I think it took around 90 minutes.
Yes, I had a Makita.
But, other than that, I was left with just me and no help – at all.
And I did it. EASILY.
I swear, Boz does all the heavy lifting! Every screw was marked… every assembly issue was dealt with either on the DVD or on the written material.
To be honest, I am totally proud of myself. This saddle has extra special meaning to me.
I didn’t struggle. It was fun and easy!
(If you want your own kit, go here!)
HERE WE GO – A PHOTO DIARY!
Basically, most of the work is already done when you receive your kit.
The tree has all of the major attachments.
All you are really doing is putting on the finishing touches…
It comes with a DVD and a written summary. I mostly used the DVD.
But, knowing I was going to follow the DVD, I ended up assembling it in my office…
THE HARDEST PART… was putting on the sheepskin. It is velcro and really tight velcro. So, you have to place it perfectly.
If not, you have to rip it off (no easy feat) and re-align it – then try again.
Attaching the sheepskin perfectly was the most time consuming part.
(no screws needed…)
THE BOZ saddle is the best saddle I’ve owned! I love it!
So, don’t be afraid to pay half the price and put it together yourself!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for posting photos, this is great! One question: I couldn’t find any information on seat size, how do I know if my big bum will fit? I ride a 17″ western, and it sure doesn’t look like I’d fit in this saddle :(
