Note, this video is a chocolate trail rider, not a black trail rider.
Saddle up! There’s no better saddle for trail riding than the Trail Rider by Tennessee (TN) Saddlery! This is a great looking and comfortable saddle. It is finished in all black. Please note- the video shows the saddle in chocolate brown, but it is only available in black. We are really excited to offer lightweight saddle with this quality leather and workmanship at this price. The color options are black or chocolate. The Trail rider has the same design on the saddle as it does on all the accessories. Check out the photos!
Gaited Saddles: These gaited saddles are built on a specially designed gaited tree. It works well on most Tennessee Walkers, Spotted Saddle Horses, Racking Horses, and most of the other southern gaited breeds. If you have a MFT, Paso Fino, or Rocky Mountain, gaited horse that is difficult to fit, contact us for my recommendations. NOTE: This saddle does not seem to fit most Arabians.

We use soft, supple leather. Our leather may some slight natural imperfections, such as scrapes, fat lines, and other minor irregularities that will be minor and in no way affects the use of the product. We must emphasize the word minor because occasionally customers are more concerned with perfect leather, no matter the cost. If you are a perfectionist we can make a saddle and use only “hand select leather” as a specially quoted price.
Rich, our founder and designer, has worked for many years to develop our gaited saddles with their comfortable and great looking, western styles. Check out the amazon feedback about Rich and our products on both eBay and Facebook for over a decade.
