Over the last 35 years we have had the opportunity to build many different styles of saddles. We have found that the style saddle shown in the following pictures is the most popular for us and the style that we prefer to build.

The wood-post Wade tree is very popular all over the world today. Most people seem to like the round skirts, this helps to make your saddle a little lighter weight. We highly recommend a flat plate rigging with half stirrup leathers and what we refer to as TC fenders. TC fenders are simply our version of cutting horse fenders. With the smaller fenders and half stirrup leathers the saddle is more comfortable, free swinging and less bulky, therefore making your saddle feel narrow. This all helps to eliminate a lot of knee and leg pain.

All of our saddles are built on Swanke Trees and constructed of strictly USA tanned leather. Using these features along with our expert workmanship enables us to build a saddle for you that will be very comfortable to ride, long lasting but not too heavy.

For all of our working cowboys that need heavy duty saddles, we are happy to use the heavier grade leather, full stirrup leathers and wider fenders.

Here at Swanke Saddlery we strive to build the finest quality saddles, tack and saddletrees!
