Tucker Saddle Options
Color | Rigging | Skirt | Fenders | Stirrups | Girth


Most Tucker saddles are available in three different leather colors.


Enduro-Balanced Single Tie
This style has a conventional front dee attachment with extra "front to back" straps on either side forming a Y on the saddle with the front dee in the middle. The front to back straps create an extra snug fit and make steep riding more secure.
Enduro-Balanced Double Tie
This type requires an enduro balance girth. Two separate billets attach to the girth--one attaches to the D ring and one to the back of the saddle.
Western Double Dee Drop
This style is conventional Western rigging with tie strap and off billets, but sits lower on the horse for less bulk under the rider's leg and closer contact with the horse.
Balanced Ride English Billet

This rigging has three one-inch wide billets which attach to an English girth.


We recommend a round skirt for short-backed horses.


Western Fenders:

The Western style fender has 2.5" wide stirrup leathers and is more rigid than the trail fender.
Trail Fenders:

The trail fender has 1.5" wide stirrup leathers.


Unless specified, your new Tucker saddle will come with the stirrup it is pictured with. However, you may be able to choose a different stirrup free of charge depending upon which saddle you choose and what changes you would like to make. Stirrups with Tucker's Ergo Balance design keep the rider's foot flat in the stirrup. The angled neck decreases joint fatigue and promotes balanced riding. Tucker's Trail Glide stirrups are also popular. Trail Glide™ stirrups are made of lightweight anodized aluminum alloy and stainless steel hardware with nylon top bar. A comfortable thick sponge rubber foot cushion helps lessen knee and ankle fatigue.
