How did East West end up in the tack business…
East West Equestrian Arts is focused on conscious horsemanship, wellness, and preservation of the critically-endangered Jilfan Sitam al Bulad Early American Foundation Malabar Arabians. Ancient horse breeds and rare breed preservation are a special interest. In our explorations of other horse breeds globally we stumbled upon the desi horses and tent pegging sport of Pakistan.
The desi horses were wearing the most beautiful saddles and bridles and decorations, unique in the world. This amazing tack turned out to be tillah, a traditional craft found in Pakistan and India dating back hundreds of years. True hand-embroidered tillah is an art form, handed down within families. The designs take many hours to complete. As East West is always seeking new ways to support the Jilfan Sitam al Bulad Preservation Program, an idea was born. East West could offer this unique tack globally at a competitive price, customized for buyers the same way our own tack is customized for our Arabians and Quarter Horses here at East West. We searched and found 2 tack makers willing to work with East West to offer traditional tillah. Those makers also introduced us to the other unique saddle designs and horse jewelry now offered at East West. Our next step was ordering custom-designed cordeos to test the quality of the work, customer service and shipping process. Both makers provided excellent products with quality leather. East West was now in the tack business! We offer small numbers of hand-crafted customized saddles and other tack globally. Our small size and good relationship with our craftsmen allows us to carefully serve each customer, making sure you receive the equipment that best suits you and your horse.
In addition to tillah saddles, East West offers a few other saddle models with optional inlay, lacing and chrome ornaments. These saddles are available in dressage, close contact, all purpose, jumping and other styles, with a wooden tree in the standard widths and seat sizes. Custom synthetic trees are also available for an additional charge.
