Wide Tree Saddles
Horses come in all shapes and sizes. At The Cheshire Horse, we specialize in saddles for hard-to-fit horses with challenging conformations. For horses with broad backs and wide shoulders, wide tree saddles are often the best solution. These saddles accommodate your horse’s unique shape while allowing them to perform to the best of their ability under saddle. A tree that is too narrow may pinch or constrict your horse’s movement, so it is essential that you have an adequately-sized and shaped gullet for these horses.
We carry a variety of wide-tree saddles for the English rider, including wide tree dressage, close contact, all-purpose, and endurance saddles. Our selection of leather and synthetic saddles encompasses many popular and trusted equestrian tack and equipment brands, such as Bates Saddlery, Arena Saddles, and Wintec Saddlery. Additionally, many of these saddles are equipped with changeable gullets, so you can modify the fit of your saddle as your horse’s shape changes.
Many horse breeds, including Warmbloods, Quarter Horses, and Morgans, typically require a wide-tree saddle. If you have any questions regarding the quality saddles that we carry or if you would like assistance selecting the best saddle for your situation, we encourage you to reach out to a member of our friendly and knowledgeable sales staff. The vast majority of our saddles are available for our generous seven-day trial program, read about The Cheshire Horse Saddle Trial Program to learn more.
