This is the newest saddle. It is patterned off of the old-style saddles of the early 70s, as well as a little influence of today's saddles. This saddle has some of the old and some of the new. It sits very well on all types of horses and, when pulled correctly, it stays where you put it.
Tree is hand-made, using a wood, fiberglass, and Kevlar combination to make it as strong as possible. With today's fiber technology, this saddle is very tough and will take a lot of abuse.
This saddle is more expensive, but should be the last saddle you need to buy. There are many hours of work in the tree to insure that it is as strong as possible.
