How do I measure my present saddle seat to compare with what I might need in a Tucker saddle?

We measure our saddle seats like the typical measuring standard of western saddles, from the base of the horn straight back to the center of the rim of the cantle. The Trooper and Montreal Lite are measured from the back of the cutback area of the seat front to the back of the seat seam.

Tucker’s seat sizes come in half sizes because of the patented Gel-Cush to give you that ultimate trail comfort experience. We recommend a seat with a little extra room is better than a seat that is too snug.

Due to the suspended seat and padding in Tucker saddles, the tree size measures larger than the seat size.  No horn saddles are 1” longer than the seat size, horned saddles are ½” larger than the seat size.  Example: The T60 is built on a 17” tree in order to create a 16.5” seat.

Use our Seat Sizing Guide to help you select your ideal seat size. Choose which icon best describes your conformation; then match your height, weight, and cantle height for which seat size best suits you.
