Saddle Trees - from Shop and Desk

Posted by RodandDenise on August 15, 2011

We are no longer building saddle trees, but we have two videos about how Western saddles fit horses available on our website.

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!

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
