TYPES OF CUSTOM SADDLES

Barrel

Our barrel saddles are specifically designed to help keep racers secure and in the pocket. Riders have the choice of customizing their saddle with any tree, but our most popular options have been the following:

  • 9" x 13" Pommel - 5" Cantle

  • 9" x 13" Pommel - 4" Cantle

  • 8.5" x 13" Pommel - 4" Cantle 

Cowhorse

Our cowhorse saddles are our saught after by amateur and professional riders alike. Although we have several ways of building our cowhorse saddles, the goal remains the same; keep the rider secure and in the pocket. Riders have the choice of customizing their saddle with any tree (Buster Welch, Donn Leson, Will James, etc.) Our most popular choices have been the following:

  • 9" x 13" Pommel - 3" Cantle

  • 8.5" x 13" Pommel - 3" Cantle 

Cutting

Our cutting saddles are by far our favorite to build. We've collaborated with amateurs and professionals like NCHA Hall of Fame trainer Jesse Lennox to design the perfect cutting saddle.  Riders have the choice of customizing their saddle with any tree, but our most popular choices have been the following:

  • 9" x 13" Pommel - 3" Cantle

  • 8.5" x 13" Pommel - 3" Cantle 

  • 8" x 13" Pommel - 3" Cantle 

Light Weight

We offer riders the option to make any tree of choice into a Light Weight version. Riders have the choice of customizing their saddle with any one of our standard fiberglass wrapped wooden trees (Buster Welch, Donn Leson, Will James, etc.) We then help with design elements to make the saddle as light as requested. Our Light Weight line averages 28-32 pounds depending on the client's options. If a rider needs something lighter, our Ultra Lite line should be considered. 

Mule 

Mules are incredibly special, and some require special trees. A mule tends to be more straight and narrow than our typical stock horses. This can create fit problems when trying to purchase a saddle built on a tree meant for a stock horse. We offer 2 different mule bars, and we are able to build any type of tree and saddle after choosing the bar and flare needed for the mule.

Ranch Cutter

Many riders look for a saddle that can serve many purposes. Our ranch cutters have been used by cutters, sorters, barrel racers, and cowhorse competitors. The goal we keep in mind when designing our Ranch Cutter trees is two-fold; keep the tree secure, keep the rider secure. We reinforced the horn with #10 rivets making the Ranch Cutter capable of roping 800-900 pounds. Riders have the choice of customizing their saddle with any tree (Buster Welch, Donn Leson, Will James, etc.) Our most popular choices have been the following:

  • 9" x 13" Pommel - 3" Cantle

  • 8.5" x 13" Pommel - 3" Cantle 

Ranch Rider

Our Ranch Rider is the perfect solution to finding a saddle to suit your needs in the show pen. This saddle was specifically designed to support the rider in a nice, easy pocket, and give the rider the ability to easily post an extended trot or jump if needed in a ranch trail class. We chose a reinforced post horn that offers a secure base to dally and drag. Like our other saddles, this tree has the capability of handling 800-900 pounds. Riders have the choice of customizing their saddle with any tree (Buster Welch, Donn Leson, Will James, etc.), but we use one configuration:

  • 8" x 13" Pommel - 3" Cantle

Reining

Our Reining saddle offers a great pocket without the cumbersome height of a tall pommel. The saddle has been specifically designed to support the rider and provide the total freedom of movement needed to train and ride a reining horse, completed with our signature close contact skirt cutout. Riders have the choice of customizing their saddle with any tree (Buster Welch, Donn Leson, Will James, etc.). Riders can choose between 

  • 8" x 13" Pommel - 3" Cantle

  • 8.5" x 13" Pommel - 3" Cantle

Roping

Trophy 

It is wonderful to provide competitors with an award that represents the hard work and dedication put in to our sport. We offer trophy saddles in any of our offered saddles. We ask that club leaders contact us directly for details. 

Ultra Lite

With a high demand for light weight saddles, we have sourced a Urethane tree with cable rigging that will provide riders with the lightest saddle possible without being treeless. We will offer limited configurations with this tree, and there will be a cost increase above our base price. Customers will have the option of an Association or a Wade, and a 6.25" or a 6.5" gullet. 

Versatility 

Our Versatility saddle has been specifically designed to support the rider  provide total freedom of movement, and have the ability to be used in any way. Our versatility riders use their saddles for reining, ranch riding, cutting, sorting, trail riding, fence work, and cowboy racing. The versatility offers a post horn capable of holding 800 to 900 pounds, and is completed with our signature close contact skirt cutout. Riders have the choice of customizing their saddle with any tree (Buster Welch, Donn Leson, Will James, etc.), but we only offer the versatility in 1 configuration; 

  • 8" x 13" Pommel - 4" Cantle

Youth 

Kids and horses alike benefit from using high quality tack. Customers may choose from any one of our saddles. The saddles are still hand crafted using the same materials and care. 

Wade 

We've designed our Wade ropers with function in mind. Many of our wade customers need one saddle to perform multiple jobs. Our wades our built to hold large cattle, yet have been designed to provide the rider with a close contact feel so they get the most communication with their horse. We provide our clients with the option to use any bar and fork combination they would like.
