"Use of the formatter in Pisgah National Forest and Smoky Mountains National Park. A pack saddle with bragging rights, one man's opinion. Thought you would appreciate your pack saddle helping keep the history and heritage of stock use alive and well in the South."

"Thanks to you good folks for your hospitality and speedy service and high quality products. I have been using them for several years now. The Formfitter saddle is incredible along with the mule halter, bear cloth panniers, and top pack! All a must for the high country pack trips!"

"Hi My husband Jerry and I are just purchasing our 3rd form fitter packsaddle. And we just cant say enough good things about this very well made & very well thought out design of pack saddle!
We are using the same type of Form fitter on every thing, from our 17 hand draft cross to out 14 hand Haflingers. and the fit is spot on with each horse. We love the easy adjustment. And Most important, the horses are happy and comfortable.
We have covered many miles in the hi country of Montana and have never had a horse come up sore.
Thank you from us and our horses!"
- Jerry & Wendy Galvin
"I just wanted to let you know I have used one of your 12" Dandy saws for years now hunting and camping. I love that thing. Tough as nails and cuts very well. Keep making them here in the USA and keep the quality up and you have a customer for life. I have purchased one for my son and at least two now for gifts."
"The Bear / Iron Cloth Panniers did their job extremely well on the Unbranded ride. They're expensive but you get what you pay for. We had a horse that got in a wreck and one of the pannier hooks came off the sawbuck and the pannier was dangling off the horse. The pannier was drug on a road for about a mile but the remarkably tough material didn't tear and we didn't lose the contents. What separates this pannier from other panniers, in my opinion, is that it has the high quality closing straps and lids to snug your contents up really tight. Normal duffel panniers can have a lot of looseness in them which can result in gear getting banged around and make noise on the trail, which I despise. The panniers are also handy because you don't need a pack cover to protect the contents from the elements or from falling out. To be honest I rarely think about my Bear / Iron Cloth Panniers and I prefer that. I have more important things than panniers to consider like my horses, logistics, the trail, and spending time with friends or family. They're great panniers. I'd certainly buy them again but won't need to for a long time because the ones I have will last for a long long time."

"I want to thank you for being so responsive in getting my order to me. Sorry again that it was such a rush. Here is my horse with the Phillips Formfitter Pack Saddle and your Utah Meat Pack Panniers getting ready to pack out after a successful hunt. That is my hunting partner. We are at about 11,000 feet here at our campsite in the Sierra's. Love your equipment best I've ever used!
One Satisfied Customer!"

"I just wanted to let you know that the pulling breast collar and the crupper I ordered from you came today. It is absolutely perfect! I had no doubts that either item would be less than top notch. I say that because the pack saddle and rigging you made for me a few months back is also excellent quality and craftsmanship. Anytime I need tack that you make, I will be calling you from now on. Thank you so much for the extremely fine work you did on these items. P.S. I will be telling my friends about your quality work."

Hier ist ein Foto von einem Haflinger mit dem Sattel (Packpferd mit den khaki-grünen Manties). Grösser bzw. näher dran konnte ich leider keine Bilder auftreiben."

"After trying to save money and purchasing two different saddle breechings for my mule, I found these guys on YouTube and bought a very nice breeching from them. The quality is outstanding and the price was very reasonable. I would order from them again."

"Thanks SO much for making your "come along" halter in the smaller size I picked up from you at the K Falls pack clinic...it made a world of difference!!!"
"We got back from our 11 day pack trip a week ago and wow, what a great time. I'd used my new pack gear a few times before that trip but this was the true test and I'm happy to say everything passed with flying colors. :)
The pack saddle was awesome. I've never seen something so adjustable, there were adjustable straps for everything and we'd continuously twig the adjustments till we and the horse were happy. It worked great. Your sleeping bag sacks worked out great too!"
- Bill Meyer
Hello Wade and Simone,
