From This to That - Part 2

Posted by RodandDenise on June 22, 2012

We are no longer building saddle trees. We have two saddle fit videos available on our westernsaddlefit.com websiteWestern Saddle Fit - The Basics, aimed at riders, is available either on DVD or streaming on Vimeo while the six hour series Well Beyond the Basics, aimed more for professionals but understandable by anyone, is available by streaming on Vimeo. (We left this website up because we have had many requests to keep the information available.)

And that is that!!!

This walnut saddle tree will be built into a riding saddle.  The fork, cantle, and as much of the front of the bars as possible will be exposed.  The customer knows it is not as strong as a rawhide covered tree, but well cared for and used for recreational riding, it will make a beautiful saddle.

WOW is this a stunning tree! The grain of the wood is just truly beautiful. One doesn't normally see a "pretty" tree, but this is truly that.
