We have used trees from Bowden Saddle Trees for several years. These trees are cottonwood covered in rawhide. Theses trees have been proven to be very stout but light weight. We have made saddles using other customized trees as well.
Customized Cliff Wade Tree
A slick fork tree with a post horn is the basis for this tree. The bars fit a variety of horses and it allows a nice deep seat.
Association Style Tree
The classic western saddle tree with swells built into the tree. The horn is small enough to hold or stout enough to use to rope.
The Whetherly Tree
This is old cowboy style tree with a high cantle and a high horn. This tree gives the deepest seet possible.
