    Default Help me identify my stirrup leathers -- Photo added!

    I need to replace my stirrup leathers and would love to get the same ones again, but I can't figure out what make they are (I can't even remember where I bought them!).

    They are a very dark brown (which I especially liked since I didn't need to oil them to match my dark brown saddle), 48", half-holes, and nylon-lined.

    The distingiushing mark on them is at the end of the leather where there is an embossed capital "V" with a smaller "S" that is situated in the opening of the "V".

    The other distingiushing featuire is that the buckle is identical to that of the Prestige leathers.

    I recall paying somewhere between $120 - $140 for these.

    Any ideas?

    candidate #1

    candidate #2 (don't think these are it, but they might be a possible replacement)

    candidate #3 (Maybe??? I'm having a hard time finding your leathers too...)

    Can we see a picture?
    If i smell like peppermint, I gave my horse treats.
    If I smell like shampoo, I gave my horse a bath.
    If I smell like manure, I tripped.

    My guess from the V s would be Voltaire perhaps?

    That was my first thought, too!

    My guess initially would have also been Voltaire, but they seem to mark their leathers differently...

    Hmm, that's a tough one. My guess is Verhan Saddlery.

    If you're looking for a suitable replacement that's quality but won't break the bank, the Beval flat-buckle leathers are a good choice.
