We believe achieving the most suitably sized tree and seat size for your saddle is paramount. Therefore, we collect as much information as possible from both horse and rider.
Once you’ve purchased the saddle of your choice, we will work closely with you to ensure a reliable saddle that provides comfort and pleasure for both horse and rider for many years to come.
We offer three basic styles of saddle tree:
Stock Horse Tree – Thoroughbred style stock horses with prominent wither and narrow shoulders.
Semi Quarter Horse Tree – Fits a wide range of horses.
Full Quarter Horse Tree – Heavy set, low withered horses.
To assist the saddler in choosing a saddle tree to suit your breed of horse, a template of the horse’s wither is helpful. To make a template, take a piece of soft fencing wire and run it up the shoulder and over the wither. Trace the shape onto a sheet of paper.
Specific photos of your horse will also assist the tree makers in choosing the best tree option for your horse:
• Photo 1: Of your horse side-on.
• Photo 2: Taken from a raised position, and from the rear, of your horse’s back.
• Photo 3: Taken as you are tracing the horse’s wither.
