Commitment To Excellence
As the market leader we are constantly researching, developing, and implementing the latest in design and technique to provide you with the best possible trail saddles available. Our philosophy is to disregard tradition any time that the end product can be improved.
No shortcuts are taken when selecting new materials for our saddles. We use world-class leather, hardware and trees that are specially made to our specifications and guidelines from the finest tanneries and hardware manufacturers available. The Tucker trademark is a symbol of quality.
Our saddle leather is durable yet supple, with a beautiful, rich appearance. Natural range marks enhance the quality and provide the assurance of genuine top grain leather. We use hardware that will resist rust and corrosion because saddle hardware is subjected to sweat, rain, stress and other abuses. Our trees are made of wood and covered in DURAhide™. They are designed to fit the horse properly and provide ample strength while being as lightweight as possible.
When you visit Tucker's saddle shop, you will find a dedicated group of saddle craftsmen; a team that is committed to preserving the ancient art of saddle making and progressing the technology of equine mastership. Our tooling is done by hand, not machine stamped.
Tucker Saddlery's skilled craftsmen are consumer focused in their approach to saddle design. By combining generations of horse knowledge and over 80 years of saddle making experience, our craftsmen have designed a series of saddles that are specifically crafted to meet the needs of both the horse and rider.
