Here are some pictures of a couple of Pro Roper saddle trees we shipped out today.  They are both headed to the same saddle maker in Manitoba but despite the name, neither is destined to be primarily a roping saddle.  The only difference between the two is the fork width and gullet height.

This one is 13" wide, and has a gullet height of 8".  Both are 4" at the hand hole and have a 90 degree bar angle.

Here is a side view of the second one.  Both of these have our normal amount of rise to the seat, but we can flatten any seat.  You just have to specify that with your order.

This one had a 12" fork width, and a 7 3/4" gullet height.

Something we did for the first time with these trees was lay the cantle angle back further to 32.5 degrees.  Rod has been contemplating doing this for the lower cantles (3" and maybe 3 1/2") for a while, and these were good trees to try it on.  These trees both have 3" tall cantles.

Remember, of course, that the Pro Roper name only has to do with the outline shape of the fork.  It says nothing about the style or angle of cantle.  However, a lot of roping cantles are of this style, so it won't be unusual if we get this fork and cantle combination again.
