This achievement not only represents imposing dimensions but also symbolizes the innovative spirit and exceptional craftsmanship that distinguishes Sonora.

In the vast horizon of Sonora, where the sun pours its warmth onto lands steeped in history and tradition, a monumental milestone has been forged. Amidst the laughter of ranchers and the whisper of the wind through cacti, Sonora has reached new heights, breaking the world record with its latest gem: the World's Largest Saddle.


From Moctezuma, this colossal achievement stands tall with an imposing height of approximately 3.50 meters, a width that defies scale at 1.66 meters, and a majestic length extending to 2.80 meters. It is a visual testament to the ingenuity and craftsmanship of the people of Sonora, who have etched their mark in the prestigious Guinness World Records.


This feat has been accomplished with the creation of the "Regional Working Saddle," a masterpiece crafted from cowhide and a pine wood frame covered with raw cowhide. Every stitch, every detail, meticulously recreates the essence of a traditional saddle for horseback riding but on a scale that challenges expectations.


The triumph of surpassing the previous record set in Coahuila underscores Sonora's commitment to artisanal excellence. The former saddle, proudly displayed at the Livestock Museum in Múzquiz, Coahuila, boasted dimensions of 3.18 meters in height, 1.31 meters in width, and 2.14 meters in length. However, Sonora has raised the bar, adding a new chapter to the history of Mexican craftsmanship.


This achievement not only represents imposing dimensions but also symbolizes the innovative spirit and exceptional craftsmanship that distinguishes Sonora. As the World's Largest Saddle gets ready to be exhibited at La Ganadera in Hermosillo, the echo of this feat will resonate throughout Mexico and beyond, inviting everyone to discover the greatness that lies in the heart of Sonora. From the vast plains to the surrounding mountains, the World's Largest Saddle serves as a tangible reminder that when the people of Sonora set out to reach for the stars, there are no limits that can contain their greatness.
