Hand Crafted Especially for You
For more than 35 years we have been passionate about crafting saddles and riding equipment to enrich the experience of trail riders. Our products have contributed to thousands of hours of riding comfort for thousands of horses and their riders. When lady long rider Bernice Ende says after riding over 20,000 miles in Tucker Saddles, “Nothing comes between me and my horse, but a Tucker saddle.” We consider it a privilege to share in this unique relationship between horse and rider. Most every Tucker product is made in the USA.
Commitment To Excellence
Our vision remains the same as it did when we started over 35 years ago – “To provide Ultimate Trail Comfort for both rider and horse.” We are dedicated to the development, design and crafting of trail saddles and equipment. Today, Tucker saddles are the standard in quality and style for trail riders on all breeds. Tucker’s team of experienced saddle makers are dedicated to the art of saddle making. These craftsmen are committed to preserving the tradition and progressing the technology of saddle mastership.
With the patented Gel-Cush™ shock absorbing seat incorporated into every Tucker trail saddle, riders everywhere experience ultimate comfort for hours on the trail. Our years of research combined with our state-of-the art computer imaging have allowed us to produce precision saddle trees that provide unrestricted movement and a comfortable fit for horses of all breeds. Our research has led us to develop extended fits for those horses with conformations not served by the industry standards. Only the highest quality leather is used combined with other materials that create a saddle to last a lifetime with proper care.
When you visit Tucker’s saddle shop, you will find a dedicated group of saddle craftsmen; a team that is committed to preserving the art of saddle making and progressing the technology of equine mastership.
All of our saddles are designed based on thousands of hours of trail riding feedback from our loyal family of Tucker riders. We believe that you will agree with them that Tucker Trail Saddles are absolutely the most comfortable saddles available today.
A Tucker is different because of the Patented Gel-Cush™ Shock Absorbing Seat built into every Tucker saddle for ultimate trail comfort during long hours in the saddle. Gel-Cush™ never breaks down, pops, freezes, or melts.
What is the secret of a good fitting saddle?
The answer is simple, a good fitting tree. That might sound over simplified, but the fact is that the tree is simply the key to a saddle that fits properly.

- A saddle tree with bars that have enough twist and bend to contact the horse along the middle section. Our trees are designed with years of combined experience and study. The trees are carved out of an extra large piece of wood, so the twist and bend are adequate to provide continual surface contact through the middle section of the horse which disperses the rider’s weight evenly.
- A saddle tree with bars that have enough flare to free the horse to move in the front and rear. With our saddle tree we accomplish both of these objectives. Tucker saddles are designed with a bar flare to to accommodate the motion of a horse’s shoulders. Many gaited breeds need this accommodation and other breeds will appreciate this freedom of movement as well.
