Just because it's PUURRRDDYYY!

Posted by RodandDenise on March 6, 2014

We are no longer building saddle trees. We have two saddle fit videos available on our 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.)


Here is a picture of the tree we mentioned in a blog post a while ago - in all its glory...


The horn is an exposed, polished bronze # 1 horn made by Herb Bork of Bork Saddlery Hardware.



Very showy horn!


The tree is a Visalia 3B – 3 ½” stock thickness on an 8” slick fork. It has a 5” tall, 12 ½” wide, 40 degree Taylor cantle.


So shiny, you can see your face in it!!  

Just something else a little different...

It is SO pretty (thank you, Rod) and I want to ride in it so badly right NOW, but the saddle and tooling must do justice to the horn, so it will take longer, and I can't even start it until I get two almost-finished custom saddles out the door, so it sits on my worktable (with a weight on it) looking beautiful and taunting me daily. Aaaarrrgggghhhhh!!!
