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


See!!!  We have twin trees in the shop right now.  Aren't they CUTE!!!  (Well, everyone says that about newborn human twins.  Why not about new-made saddle tree twins??)  Here are a couple Wade trees with exposed, Guadalajara shaped, Jarrah wood horn caps.  And they are totally identical!!


Well, except that one has a 5 1/2" horn cap with plugged screw holes, so this will be how it looks finished - except a bit shinier because it still needs more coats of varnish...


while this one has a 5" horn cap with open screw holes because it will have a fancy 3" horn cap on it when it is finished.


And this one has a 6" stock thickness and a 7 3/4" gullet height, and the horn is 3 1/2" high


while this one has a 5 3/4" stock thickness and a 7 1/2" gullet height and the horn is 3 1/4" high...


And this one is an 8" Wade fork


while this one is an 9" Wade fork.


And this one has a 16 1/2" seat length (9 1/4" thigh length)


while this one has a 15 1/2" seat length (8 3/4" thigh length...)


And this one has a 4 1/2" high, 13" wide cantle at 37 1/2 degrees


while this one has a 4 3/4" high, 12" wide shovel shaped cantle at 40 degrees...  But they both have 1 1/2" dish!!

OK.  So maybe they aren't identical, but they are at least fraternal twins - right?


And with their hats on, they really do look the same...  Don't they????
