Due to the popularity of reining saddles being used as trail saddles, JJ Maxwell have now brought into their range the Trail Reiner. It is their only trail model that has a wider swell. It is built on a reining tree, with the same horn that is on their other slick fork saddles. The saddle comes standard with a reining fender. This saddle has a 16ins seat and 7ins measured width and we are informed by JJ Maxwell that this saddle has Arab bars with Draft Angles. Made in June, 2020.
ABOUT J J MAXWELL SADDLES:
Each saddle is not only an exquisite, hand-tooled, quality piece of leather art, it is also engineered and hand-crafted by a master saddle maker in the Old World, and western traditions. There are no gimmicks, just top quality workmanship, based on time-proven principles.
Hand-crafted with top quality leather, 100% bark tanned wool fleece, stainless steel screws, and stainless steel or brass hardware. They are all compact in design, which means: lighter weight, shorter skirts, less bulk. The stirrup leathers are pre-stretched. The advantage of pre-stretched leathers is, the side you mount on will not become longer than the offside. The fleece is grain oriented, which keeps your saddle pad from sliding out from underneath the saddle. The skirts are blocked, which means that they have been wetted and formed to the tree and allowed to dry. This gives the underside of the saddle a nice curve to it. The back of the skirts are not sewn or laced together beyond the back of the bar and are allowed to float. This prevents a hard line across the back. A permanent stirrup twist is applied to the stirrup leathers. This means less stress on the ankles, knees, and hips.
All of this is added to a specially designed tree that will give the horse/mule and rider the utmost in pleasure for a lifetime. JJ Maxwell uses 11 possible fits with an easy to use fit system. The fits are based on different body types. The tree is a wood fiberglass covered tree for strength and durability. The front of the tree bar has been shortened up slightly and rounded off. This makes for less of a sharp angle. The front of the saddle is the front of the tree. You may note that there is very little excess skirt sticking out in front of the tree bar. The front of the saddle is meant to be placed just at or off the scapula. This modification to the tree is very subtle, but it allows for more freedom of the shoulder. All of their trail saddles have the same features. They all have a 4-inch cantle. The Hope saddle, Pistolero, Weatherly, and the GT Packer are all built on the same style tree.
Maxwell also has a unique rigging that lessens the cinch pressure and spreads the pressure down the side of the saddle. This makes it unnecessary to have a rear cinch, and therefore, a lighter weight saddle.
JJ Maxwell saddles have been designed to position the rider in a truly balanced position. Not only will it position you properly, but it has been designed to free up and accommodate the working muscles of your equine partner. Remember, if your horse is not enjoying the ride, then you probably aren’t either.Read more
