Why Our Gaited Saddles?
Our founder, Rich, designed a strong gaited light weight tree in order to help keep the saddle weight down. The gaited tree is a combination of fiberglass and wood. This technology enables most of our gaited saddles to be in the 22-28 pound range. Of course, we could make them lighter, but we would require us to skim on the quality of the leather. Therefore, wanting to keep the weight down, and the quality high, our thickness of leather is high quality and full grain. You’ll love our gaited saddles.
We Fit Gaited Horses Better
We have been designing and selling Gaited Saddles prior to our official foundation in 2006. Our gaited tree was custom designed in Tennessee, in the heart of Tennessee Walking Horse country and the gaited saddle community. The gaited gullet is 6.75 inches and flared. Unlike a full Quarter Horse Bar saddle it is designed to sit correctly on the withers and not drop down and throw off the way the bars sit on the horses back. The bars are called by many people as wide, however they are not. The bars themselves are not wide (only measuring 13 inches), but the angle is wide. Our experience has shown that our design work best for the flatter back of most southern breeds of gaited horse like Tennessee Walking Horses.
The gaited bars are also shorter to fit the shorter back of the typical gaited horse. Do we fit 100% of the gaited horses? No, but we have a great track record!
