Tucker Trail Saddles: Trail Tested to 10,000 miles

We have the honor of riding with a remarkable woman and long rider: Bernice Ende. For Bernice, long riding is not a job or a hobby, it is her life and her passion. Unlike other long riders that have undertaken a ride as a once-in-a-lifetime thing, Bernice has been long riding since 2005, with more than 28,000 miles! She considers it a privilege and a freedom to be able to do what many others wish they could. She understands both the romanticism of the long rider and the realism of living off the land, day by day. Bernice says she never imagined the response she has received from the public. Along her ride she is welcomed into towns where she gives talks to various groups about her experience. She stops in the libraries to answer her emails. People offer their homes, food, and hearts to her and her traveling companions. On one of Bernice’s rides several years ago, she rode to Texas and stopped by. We introduced her to the folks here at Tucker, and she brought in her Tucker High Plains saddle for show and tell. WOW. This saddle has been ridden over 10,000 miles and has held up remarkably. The leather is soft and pliable as a glove, the Gel-Cush™ seat is still as comfortable as day 1, and Honor (her Thoroughbred mare) never had a saddle sore. As Bernice explains, this saddle is an intimate part of her life. She sits in it for hours a day, every day, it’s her chair, her bed. She can not afford to have a sore horse, to be held up in order to rest or heal. Compared to the riding that most of us do, this saddle is abused. And now that Honor is gone (because of a freak, tragic accident), it was retired from the long ride. Today, Bernice rides in a 261 Black Mountain and 159 Endurance depending on which horse she rides. “Here I am at the end of 10,000 miles and I want another Tucker saddle. It’s light durable and beautiful. I hope it’s on Essie for another 10,000 miles. It’s my chair, it’s my bed, it’s an intimate part of my life. It takes abuse. If I can take the abuse of long riding, it can take the abuse of weekend rides.” – Bernice Ende To learn more about Bernice Ende and follow her travels, visit her website at...

Horizon: Protect your horse’s back in three ways

Tucker is the premier and most comfortable Trail Saddle available for both the rider and their horse. A Tucker trail saddle isn’t just a saddle – it’s the ticket for horse enthusiasts and their beloved equine partners to ride for hours at a time while remaining comfortable. To provide trail riding enthusiasts with ultimate comfort, Tucker Trail Saddles is excited to introduce an entirely different level of comfort – the Horizon Series trail saddle. “The new Horizon saddle series was developed from our innovation combined with thousands of hours of trail riders’ feedback,” said Steve Tucker, founder and president of Tucker Trail Saddles. “We believe these new saddles address all the needs of a trail rider to provide even more comfort for you and your horse.” Tri-Tech Fit System Help protect your horse’s back in three ways with the Horizon Series by Tucker. Designed to provide hours of riding comfort for you and your horse, the tree base provides modest flexibility to accommodate conformation differences in your horse’s back. The skirt includes a flexible panel which maximizes weight distribution to help eliminate pressure points for your horse. Our flexible panel has a finger design that allows it to flex independently of the tree for a truly dynamic fit. To provide additional shock absorption and even more comfort to the horse, a Gel-Cush™ bar pad lines the flexible panel. Every Tucker saddle’s skirt is lined with genuine wool felt because of the tremendous natural shock absorption, the years of durable protection it provides, and over time it will not pack down like fleece. Ergonomic Shock Absorbing Seat (patent number 6,434,916) The latest in Gel-Cush™ shock absorbing technology, we redesigned our shock absorbing ground seat by contouring it to provide a close contact riding experience while reducing impact. The sculpted cushion design features an ergonomic relief channel that helps eliminate pressure points in tender areas. Silicone matrix is paired with patented Gel-Cush™ to provide a more comfortable ride. English Bridle Leather Hand crafted with detail to the finest craftsmanship, every saddle in the Horizon series line is created from exceptional English Bridle leather that has a luxurious supple feel from the first time that you use it. The dye will not run or rub off and naturally resists moisture and the elements. “We don’t just make saddles,” said Tucker, “we create a solution for trail riders to be unbelievably comfortable in the saddle for extended periods of time.” Horizon saddles are finished with functional trim and stainless steel hardware engraved with the Tucker logo. From the advanced saddle tree system to the ergonomic shock absorbing seat, experience the most advanced equine riding system available. It’s more than another trail saddle – it’s the Horizon series by Tucker. Click to view the enlarged comfort features of the Horizon...
