Riding Poncho in Pendleton®'s Brave Star, Bison Leather trim, natural horn toggle.
This contemporary interpretation of the American flag is a celebration of the patriotism of Native Americans. In 1875 Indian scouts carried messages from fort to fort in the West. Native American soldiers saw action with Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders in Cuba. And soldiers from many tribes battled in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf and Iraq. Five Native Americans have been awarded the Medal of Honor for bravery “above and beyond the call of duty.” The design marries modern asymmetry and vintage Americana. The unique striations, using pulled out yarns, reflect an era when dyes were made from plants.
Riding Ponchos are individually handcrafted and each is a unique creation. They are completely reversible with all natural materials. Riding Ponchos are made from authentic Pendleton Wool, hand striped Bison leather and natural horn toggles. Coordinating saddle pads, in both English and Western styles, are available. Perfect for the arena, trail, grocery store, pub or music festivals like Burning Man.
