We use Northern Bull rawhide to wrap our wood (6mm plus thickness) twice the thickness than southern rawhide

 



This illustration shows the indepth measurements of most angles in the Saddle Tree Making process creating a balanced frame for a correctly balanced saddle.

Saddle Tree Key or Code outlining all the angles that go into consideration when making custom saddle trees.  A must for the non-typical professional horseman

The Saddle Tree is the base or, better said, the skeleton of a saddle. In reality that is what we are fitting on both the horse...

Horse skeletons and muscle structure are taken into accoun when making custom saddles

and the horseman.

Human skeleton is also taken into account in making custom saddles

Just because some saddles are hand made DOES NOT make them custom.

We take in consideration the skeletal structure of both Human and Horse to determine the necessary angles and measurements.

This creates a TRUE CUSTOM SADDLE.
