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.


These are the seat size equivalents to English and Western, (measured on the bare tree prior to being built).

S1  ≈ 16.5″  (compare to 15″ Western or 16.5″ English)
S2 ≈ 17.5″  (compare to 16″ Western or 17.5″ English)
S3 ≈ 18″     (compare to 17″ Western or 18.5″ English)


S4 ≈ 19″     (compare to 18″ Western or 19.5″ English) and is not available on all models.  Upcharge also applies.

Please note, that the finished seat size depends on the model and can vary slightly between different models.  The seat size also depends on the type of gallery (front and back) you are choosing.   When in doubt, contact us to get the opportunity to sit in one of our saddles first before ordering.
