Saddlers & leather workers from around the world join host Christian Lowe to share stories and secrets on the leather trade and the art and life of making, repairing, and selling saddles and other equipment for horses.

By Skyhorse

Lisa and Loren Skyhorse began making saddles over 50 years ago in northern California. They now call Durango, Colorado their home.

Their passion for horses and custom saddlery runs deep. They are both avid riders and have ridden horses all over the world, including Africa, Mongolia, Peru and the Altai mountains in Southern Siberia. They were avid Endurance Riders for over 20 years and together completed 4 World Championship Ride and Ties.

Lisa and Loren have always run their business with the utmost integrity. They remember when a person’s handshake and word were their bond and continue to live and do business by that code of honor.
Below is a short explanation of how they came to produce Skyrider. We hope that knowing the evolution of Skyrider will be helpful in your decision to try one.

How Skyrider was Born

In 2010 Lisa and Loren set out on a venture to design and construct a saddle that was affordable, yet encompassed all the qualities of their nicest custom saddle. As a result of their effort, the SKYRIDER was born. It wasn’t easy, however. There were several prototypes built and tested before deciding on just the right design. Only after Lisa and Loren were completely satisfied with the durability of the saddle and its comfort for both the horse and rider, would they offer it to their clients.
