Saddle Trees - from Shop and Desk

Posted by RodandDenise on August 15, 2011

You can now purchase our 67 minute video, Western Saddle Fit - The Basics, by going to our new website, westernsaddlefit.com. We also have a 7 minute YouTube video on Western Saddle Fit - The Essentials.  Enjoy!

We always like to share with others what we have been learning and doing, and this blog gives us the opportunity to do that.  We plan to share pictures of what we have been building in the shop and anything exciting that is happening there.  As well, Denise has been doing a lot of reading over the past few years, looking at equine anatomy and biomechanics and digging into what research there is about saddles and saddle fit.  So we plan to share some of what we have learned at the desk as well.  And there is always the rest of our life too.  We hope many of you will check in here to see what's new with us and in the saddle tree shop.  If you have comments or questions on what we have written here, please leave them in the comments section below.  Discussion is always good!

so sorry to hear about the loss of your dog. They are such big members of the family it will no doubt leave a hole. She look like a beautiful dog. God bless.

hi rod awesome blog really showed me a few things ive never considered in fit of a saddle to the horses

Mr. Nikkel: thank you so much for the excellent information. The few saddles I have built have been for working cowboys who typically ride a number of different horses, sometimes multiple horses the same day. They may save $ for a year or more for one saddle. This rig goes on all these different horses. It's hard to fit them all perfect. What are your thoughts?

Good information. I could never build a saddle but the information you give out helps one to understand how a saddle should fit.
Thank you
