Handcrafted with care from the inside out
The Saddle Tree
The crucial foundation of the saddle structure
At Kent Saddlery we make the tree for every Kent saddle. Kent saddle trees are constructed from carbon composite, reinforced with carbon fibre for extra strength and durability.
Lightweight and moisture resistant, each tree is handcrafted according to specifications agreed upon between our saddlers and each unique customer.
Full grain leather
Why Choose Rough-Out
Most of our saddles are made either rough out (i.e. flesh side out) or a combination of rough and smooth.
The rough side of leather stands up to everyday wear and tear better. It can be cut half-way through without opening up.
The strongest part of the leather is the smooth side so it needs to be protected from damage by scratching and rubbing.
A scratched smooth out saddle doesn’t look too good, affecting re-sale value. Rough out seats and kneepads also give a better grip.
