The Old Timer Western Trail saddle is historic by design with an Afork swell, short round skirt, roll over 4” or 5” cantle, two horn choices or no horn, teardrop biothane backed western fenders, and can be built on dozens of custom fitted Steele Saddle Trees for hard to fit drafts, gaited, mules and donkeys, quarters, all animals. Unlike most wide western seats, our saddle is offered on our famous narrow twist (the part between your legs) suspended deep seat for an all day no concussion ride that alleviates the torque on your lower back, hips, and knees, and allows the rider to drop their feet right off their hips into the stirrup. You can also build a traditional narrow twist padded or a hard seat. There are several choices for biothane backed no break in custom fenders, all of which have 3 positions for your leg. Standard features include JWatt conchos, leather strings, smooth or suede seat, several western or english center fire rigging choices, 3 stirrup choices, a roll over 4" cantle, and lots of stainless steel trail hardware for carrying your gear. The Old Timer Western Trail weighs 22 lbs with not much between you and your riding animal, and touts a completely open gullet and channel from front to back for spinal clearance and heat dispersion. Available in seat sizes 15-18. We fit your saddle, you design your saddle. And after your saddle arrives, we offer saddle fit advice for your growing, changing, or multiple animals. You can also add extras such as tooling, a rear cinch, bucking rolls, and more!
Matching tack is available as well as a wonderful collection of technical saddle pads. Call us to talk about matching tack!
Base prices are for saddles built on a Steele Saddle Tree quarter horse or semi quarter horse tree. Should you choose to build your saddle on a specific custom fitted tree by Steele Saddle Tree (which includes fitting face to face or from afar and the time to evaluate videos and tracings to choose a fitted tree, and custom fitting guidance after you receive your saddle), add $100 to the price of each saddle.
