Rio Rondo Enterprises Decorative Plates
For Saddles


Western show saddles just aren't complete without some bling on the corners, and that's true for model horse saddles as well! We've got a large selection of both Cast Pewter Corner Plates as well as Etched Metal sets. We also offer various Saddle Accessory items to add to your saddlemaking projects.

Etched Metal Corner and Saddle Plate Sets
Etched Metal Corner Plate Sets and Accessory Plate Sets are meticulously crafted from Nickel Plated brass, and are plain on the back side. They do come with a lacquer coating that can be removed (and should be if you intend to solder any additional decoration or features to them.) They are the ultimate in BLING with finely detailed ornamental designs.

Corner Plate Sheets feature plates in 3 sizes, to use in different places on a Traditional (1:9) scale saddle, or use the smaller plates for smaller scale items. 6 Saddle Conchos, a Cantle Plate and Horn Cap are included.

Accessories plates include Saddle and Breastcollar Dees/Buckles, Gullet Plate, Stirrup Covers, Rear Cinch Slot Covers and Latigo and Buckle Keepers.
Take a look at all the cool things you can do to customize these plates!

Cast Pewter Corner Plates
Cast Pewter Corner Plates feature detail with dimensional relief, and are suitable for adding decoration to one-piece breastcollar styles. They come with "pegs" on the back that you can insert into holes, (and bend over on the back side for a secure attachement.) You can also easily snip off the pegs and opt to glue the plates in place instead. (We recommend standard super glue for permanent attachment of cast pewter parts.). Check out our Finishing Brochure-BR2 for detailed information on easily polishing and finishing castings.

Pewter items do require some finishing, but they can also be easily reshaped, sanded, and modified to suit many projects. Some people prefer them because the metal is softer and somewhat less prone to accidentally scratching a model. You can even carve added details in them with a sharp tool (such as a carbide scraper or a moto-tool bur.)

These plates help add even more decorative variety to your saddle and tackmaking projects! Use the Pommel or Gullet plates to outfit the front portion, while adding a cantle plate to the back. A set of slot covers for the rear cinch hole really adds a special showy touch.
Use the concho joiner part between a series of conchos on a breastcollar or the back corner of a saddle for a super look!
