The White Eagle Saddle Pad Company announces the addition of The Old Master Series Carona saddle pad to their line of fine traditional western saddle pads. After the successful launch of their Western Legend and Frontier Series pads, White Eagle set out to revive the original classic Carona blanket into a saddle pad. The origins of this legendary Carona saddle blanket are traceable back to the Conquistadors. The original blankets have not been made in over sixty years because the workmanship involved required the talents of an “old master,” skilled in the lost art of hand crafted chumetearo/edging (pronounced chew-mat-te-aro).
Faced with the challenge of reproducing these original Carona saddle pads, White Eagle was determined in their quest to find a craftsman who still possessed the knowledge and command of the chumetearo artistry; someone who could pass down the secret skills in making these Carona blankets. After several years of searching, they found their “Old Master,” and have reproduced down to every last detail the historic pads.
Now for the first time in over half a century, a new generation of riders can experience these beautiful Old Master Carona pads, from trail riding to show ring.
The Old Master Series is hand made and limited quantities are available each month in the following color choices: Black/Sand, Brown/Sand, Med.Blue/Sand and Red/Sand., Burgandy/Sand, Hunter/Sand.
