We build our custom Ranch Cutter Saddles to accommodate the seat you need for a successful run. You choose the cantle & the horn angle and height, and the style of forks. Seat shims allow you to find the perfect pocket. Stirrups hung high, allow your leg to move forward easily and the fender attachment can be adjusted forward or back.
When you and your horse are competing you don’t want to be thinking about your saddle; it needs to fit such that you and your horse can move as one. At the heart of every one of our saddles is a properly designed saddle tree, and those trees are custom fit for horse and rider.

You are interested in purchasing a saddle – that’s great!
Let us help you through the process.
1. Fill out the Saddle Fitting Request form below: We will need some information about you and your horse. From there we will determine how to get your horse measured; it could be done by one of our fitting representatives or we can help you get it done remotely.
2. Fill out the Saddle Order form below: This form allows you to choose all the options to design your saddle to your specifications including style, color, conchos, and more! No payment or commitment is required to fill out this form. Feel free to contact me to discuss your order: [email protected] or 403-816-5251.
3. Send us a Deposit: When you are satisfied with all of your saddle choices and are ready to commit to your saddle purchase, we require a non-refundable deposit of $2500. Upon receipt of the deposit, you will be secured a place on our saddle build list and then we can Get Started on your saddle!
4. We Build your Saddle: Saddles generally take 3-4 months to complete. Our saddles take some time to build because they are not off-the-shelf saddles. Each saddle is built on a tree individually constructed for each horse. Saddle options are all unique to the preference of the purchaser.
5. Final Billing: We will notify you when your saddle is complete. At that time we will also send you a picture of your saddle and the final invoice. Once we receive payment your saddle will be shipped or mailed to you.
Our saddles are built on trees that are custom shaped for each horse. They are also custom-designed for the rider. We want you and your horse to look good, perform to your utmost, and be as comfortable and safe as possible whenever and wherever you ride.
