    Default Which Berney Saddle Maker

    There is a Berney Saddlery and a Berney Bros. saddle maker.

    What is the difference in quality, leather, other details?

    They are one and the same. Berney Saddlery is their shop. Berney Bros. is brand of saddle, which are good, hard wearing saddles. Have ridden in them for years, and am just now moving into something different.

    Thank you.

    I was really concerned because I ordered a DSJ before I found out there were two different addresses, two different Berney heirs running each and even though the prices and descriptions were identical, it made me wonder if I had ordered from the black sheep of the family and would end up with an inferior saddle.

    I liked the looks of the close contact PRIX but ended up with the DSJ. Do you have a preference between the two?

    I will use it for hunting and I am getting older and much slower. I have ridden for many years in the original design very flat Hermes close contact, but my age is finally forcing me to ride in something with a few "safety handles".

    Thanks again for the reply.
