The wood-post Wade tree is very popular all over the world today. Most people seem to like the round skirts, this helps to make your saddle a little lighter weight. We highly recommend a flat plate rigging with half stirrup leathers and what we refer to as TC fenders. TC fenders are simply our version of cutting horse fenders. With the smaller fenders and half stirrup leathers the saddle is more comfortable, free swinging and less bulky, therefore making your saddle feel narrow. This all helps to eliminate a lot of knee and leg pain.
For all of our working cowboys that need heavy duty saddles, we are happy to use the heavier grade leather, full stirrup leathers and wider fenders.
The swell-fork is experiencing a lot more popularity today. We’ve always built a variety of them. Our most popular swell-fork today is the Buster Welch Ranch Cutter. We also make a variety of Will James, Lieuallen, Montana Packers, T.M. Ropers, Chuck Shepard Ropers, and so many more. All our swell-forks are able to be customized in swell width, thickness, and wood post or metal horn.
