Black Mountain Gaited Saddle 261


Made In The USA

Our trail-riding customers love Tucker saddles. They're top-of-the-line in quality and comfort. We're excited that Tucker has created two new models specifically for gaited horses. This beautiful trail saddle is built on a gaited fit tree and features a close contact skirt shape for precise cueing.

The adjustable position close contact rigging is the best position for your horse and eliminates bulk under the leg for close contact. The best part of Tucker saddles is always the seat; the gel-cush provides ultimate comfort. The saddle also includes preset fenders for reduced break-in time as well as ErgoBalance stirrups for decreased knee and ankle fatigue while promoting balanced riding.

The Supple Ride leather option features seat jockeys and fenders made of top grain leather, laminated and stitched to provide a soft, broke-in feel right out of the box.

All this added together makes the most comfortable trail saddle you've ever sat in. And with plenty of options to choose from, you can customize your own saddle.

Western Saddle Seat Size Calculator

*NOTE FOR CHILDREN OR YOUTH SIZES SMALLER THAN 14" When measuring for a child's Western saddle, have them sit down in a chair. Once seated, use a measuring tape to measure the length of their upper leg from the knee to their rear. The saddle should be about 10% longer than the child's upper leg. For example: If the child's leg measures 9 inches, then the child's Western saddle should be 10 inches.

Calculated Seat Size:



There is a lot of room for personal preference with seat sizing, but as a general rule it is better to error on the side of ordering a seat size that is too large rather than erring on the side of a seat that will be too small.

Things to Consider

  • Tucker adds 1/2inch to their seat sizes (due to thick seat padding)
    16.5” Tucker = 16” normally

  • Barrel riders usually take 1” less on the seat size
    16” Trail Rider = 15” Barrel Rider

  • Ranch (slick seats) usually ride smaller (1/2inch seat size) so they don’t slide around
    16” is for most men, 15” for most women

  • Trail Saddles with High Cantles (5”) make the seat sizes feel smaller
    Trail Saddle with 5” cantle will feel smaller in the seat than one with a 3.5” cantle

  • English Saddles don’t convert exactly but often are 2” bigger
    18” English = 16” Western

  • Riders with inseams under 30” or 5’ tall and under often need custom cut fenders
    Tall riders with long legs but lighter weight may need custom cut fenders as well



Checking the Fit

  • General Guideline is about 3 fingers between your thigh and the swell.
