Sopris Roughy Saddle with Quick Draw Cinches

Sopris Roughy Saddle with Quick Draw Cinches

281.20

The Roughy saddle was improved and reintroduced in 2017 to replace the well-known Sopris Classic Saddle which spawned our business in 1985. New Classic saddles will no longer be available; however, you will see these sought-after saddles on the trail dating back to 1985, and we will continue to service them.

The Roughy is a llama frame type saddle with two plastic bars attached to hardwood horns which arch over the animal’s spine. The saddle bars are curved to make maximum contact with the llama’s back. The result is a comfortable, stable saddle easily capable of supporting  an 80 lb. load. Pannier Horn Straps with adjustable metal thumb-press cam buckles loop over the saddle horns to carry the panniers.

The recommended Sopris Split Split Pad adheres to the saddle with Velcro, making the saddle and pad one unit. The pad is further secured with a  3” wide webbing sleeve at the front, and an adjustable strap at the rear.

The Roughy is durable, lightweight, weather-resistant, and easy to use, making it a good choice for any type of use from commercial outfitting and leasing to performance showing.

It is important for the llama’s comfort that you distinguish between the front and rear of the saddle: The Sopris name is branded (faintly) on the Front Saddle Horn and also on the underside of the two Plastic Bars (rounded ends)
