For those who love the classic Western Saddle but need something shorter and lighter, we have built a saddle that is almost unheard of: A Western Saddle on an English tree! This short and light saddle is built on our fabulous Ultra-Flex tree with a fully adjustable gullet width from narrow to extra-wide. It has the wool flocked panels for extra comfort for horse and rider and is fabulous for those seeking comfort for their horse and themselves. With a softly padded seat, this saddle is ideal for long trail rides, gaited horses, and endurance riders.
Additionally, you can find our Flex-Fit Tree with fully adjustable fork in our Flex-Fit Western Saddle Line. This tree is a semi-flexible, high quality carbon fiber tree, that provides maximum stability along the spine, yet enough flexibility on the bars to allow your horse to bend. Along with the most innovative system available, our Allen wrench system, which allows you to change the width of the fork as wide or narrow as needed. Not recommended for roping.
