Which saddle style will work the best for me?
All of our saddles are lightweight, performance saddles designed to meet the specific requirements of women or men. They are engineered for the comfort of the horse and rider in the arena or when riding off-the-grid trails. We take care of the inside components of the saddles, you determine how it looks. With our custom components, you can design your saddle to your style and fit preference. Below are 3 of our popular saddles. Additional saddle styles can be found by clicking on the “Saddle Shop” button below.
The Western All-Around saddle is one of our most popular models! The saddle has a low swell and is styled with a very traditional western profile. It’s a great choice for everyday riding as a lightweight trail saddle in which you and your horse can be comfortable for hours And you will look great when competing in the show ring. For the horseman that does a little bit of everything, this is the best saddle to suit your needs and will be a very comfortable ride for both you and your horse.
We call it a “Cut Back” because of the undercut forks and the short skirts. This is a great saddle for a short backed horse or for riders who just like a small saddle for looks, lightness and horse maneuverability. Our Cut Back saddle has a modified version of our All Around swell but undercut to allow the rider to move ahead an inch or so in the seat. The rider sits closer to the base of the withers, allowing them to move balanced and more in sync with the horse’s own centre of balance. This will provide a more secure seat for the rider and help the horse carry you. The Cut Back Saddle measures like an Australian Saddle.
The Lady Wade saddle has all the same features as our other saddles with one major difference, virtually no shoulders on the forks. Additionally, they have a larger, lower horn. It is a style that originated in California. You can choose to add bucking rolls for more security in the seat.
What makes an Easy Fit saddle different?
Adjusts to the Rider
Our single strap stirrup system and cable rigging eliminate the bulk under your thigh allowing your calves to make good contact with your horse. Fenders adjust forward and back to align shoulder, hip and heel. Our tush-cush seat insert can lift the rider for a narrower seat, and tilt the pelvis forward or back to achieve a neutral position.
Easy Fit Saddles are lightweight and we have gone to great lengths to build them that way! Our tree is made of lightweight, modern materials. It incorporates the ground seat which strengthens the tree and eliminates multiple layers of heavy leather as in a traditional western saddle.
Adjusts to the Horse
We start by measuring your horse’s back with our saddle fitting template system, then build a custom tree in-house to fit. We keep the saddle fitting with shim pockets in the bars that can change angle, rock and twist. The cable rigging self-centers and pulls the saddle equally front to back. By adding a strap to it we can change the rigging position if required.
