Model: Equitation Endurance
Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: I purchased this saddle in January of 2004 from Butler's Tack in Ranburne, AL (USA) for $1250.00. I have trail ridden horses western style for some forty years but now suffer from fibromyalgia. Riding had become almost unbearable mostly because of knee stress and hip pain. Therefore, I searched for some type of saddle that would make riding a little more comfortable. I tried english saddles, and though I did enjoy the stirrup leathers as opposed to fenders, it just wasn't really how I wanted to ride. I searched the web, catalogs and tack shops for saddles. After much deliberation and discussion with other riders, I decided to try the Tucker Equitation Endurance saddle.

Likes: I basically chose this saddle because of the western feel seat with the english style stirrup leathers. As I stated, I have a medical condition that makes riding somewhat of a challenge - especially for my knees and hips. This saddle is perfect for me! It is fairly light, has a comfortable seat, the stirrup position and leathers are the most comfortable that I have ever ridden with and it fits my horse wonderfully.

Dislikes: The only thing that I would have done differently, but I didn't want to wait for a special order, is to have the english rigging that this saddle comes equipped with changed to a western rigging (simply personnal preference). However, this is not a problem because I bought rigging converters, Cashel Converters, that simply buckle onto the english billets and give you a western ring rigging.

Quality: This saddle is very high quality. I have owned several saddles throughout many years and this is one of the best quality saddles that I have owned or seen. The leather is durable and supple, it is equipped with all brass hardware with plenty of accessory rings, the tree is wood covered in DURAhide which allows it to be relatively lightweight and the seat is a Gel Cush shock absorbing seat. You can literally see and feel the high quality of this saddle.

Summary: I had ridden in some very nice saddles before deciding to try this Tucker. My previous saddle (& the one before that) were Billy Cook saddles that I really enjoyed. However, the comfort and quality of this Tucker Equitation Endurance saddle, for the trail riding that we do, is unbeatable in my experience. It may seem as though the price is a little high but it has been well worth it to me!
