Twins!!

Posted by RodandDenise on April 24, 2013

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.)

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

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????
