We are excited to offer you Tuckerís newest trail saddles and are confident that you will appreciate the new features they contain. For 30 years, Tucker Trail Saddles has been dedicated to creating saddles that provide you maximum comfort. Tucker is ahead of other companies in the way they thoroughly research saddle fit. Best of all, they have made sure that their technology is suited to gaited horses from the beginning. Now weíre proud to introduce Tuckerís Gen II saddles that promise the Next Generation of Ultimate Trail Comfort. These saddles contain several new features to enhance rider comfort, taking saddle fit and comfort to a new level. Self-adjusting bars conform to the horseís unique shape, freeing your horse to promote, encourage, and enhance its natural gait. These saddles are ideal for all horses and especially well-liked by gaited horses. The following is a breakdown of what the GEN II saddles include.
The Gen II Seat System
features the fusion of patented shock absorbing Gel-Cush technology with MicroCell ventilating top grain leather and conforming V-Foam padding to provide ultimate trail comfort.
The Adjustable Position Close-Contact Rigging
is an in-skirt rigging that allows you to position the saddle most suitable to the horse and rider, while eliminating bulk under the riderís leg and providing close contact with the horse.
The ErgoBalance Stirrups
are designed to position the riderís feet and legs for decreased knee and ankle fatigue while promoting balanced riding.
The new GEN II Skirt Design
has the same patented Gel-Cush padding riders have come to know and love from Tucker saddles. Itís now available in a gel bar pad system for the comfort of the horse. The Gel-Cush bar pad is inserted between the bar and the saddle skirt to absorb shock and increase comfort and fit for the horse.
The 100% Virgin Wool Skirt Lining
has gone through a chemical carbonization process to eliminate impurities. It offers tremendous natural shock absorption as well as many years of durable protection for the saddle. It does not pack down like fleece or create hard points against your horse.
The Tucker Fit-Fusion GII tree
incorporates a flex bar system consisting of carbon fiber reinforced wood and PolyForm conforming bars. The GII bars self adjust and disperse weight, freeing your horse to promote, encourage, and enhance itís natural gait, without sacrificing strength and durability. The tree is finish coated in DURAhide covering, which is more consistent than traditional rawhide and fiberglass covered trees because it add strength while keeping out moisture and the elements, adding to the life of your saddle.
