Uncompromising comfort with the convenience of no horn is the perfect solution for a trail rider.

    On my recent long-distance wilderness trip along the Continental Divide Trail from the Mexican border to the Canadian border, I rode exclusively in Tucker saddles. For my main riding horse, I used a Horizon Outpost, and when I gave her a day off and rode my pack horse on a section instead, I used a T59. Both saddles distributed weight well across the horses’ backs, and the problem that is often the biggest challenge for me (a fit that is too tight across the withers, resulting in rubbing and hair loss after many high mileage days) was never an issue with either the Outpost or the T59. The saddles performed flawlessly, and the horses and I felt comfortable every day of this arduous journey.

    I cannot say enough good things about the Horizon Outpost. I have now logged thousands of miles with it, and my Quarter Horse mare is 20 years old, yet she was able to maintain a good topline throughout the ride. We did up to 40 miles a day and she never had a sore back or any other issues caused by the saddle; even when I loaded up the front and back saddlebags with another 30lbs or so if we were camping overnight without the pack horse, the saddle handled the additional weight without creating pressure points. After a couple years of trying different saddles and pads with her, I thought it might be impossible to ride the kinds of miles that I do without some resulting stiffness or tenderness, but I am glad I kept looking for a solution as I finally found it with my Tucker Outpost. I don’t have to saddle shop anymore!

    Aesthetically, the Tucker saddle is my personal favorite. I like the cut of the saddle and how comfortable it is. It keeps my legs under me, which helps my own comfort and prevents me from developing stiff joints after spending all day in the saddle. I don’t know if this most recent ride from Mexico to Canada would have been possible without my Tucker saddles, especially after having completed other rides with saddle problems which left my horses sensitive to any discomfort, so that it was getting harder to keep them feeling good.

    This was my third Mexico-to-Canada ride, and it was definitely the most enjoyable for my horses entirely because they had zero back issues thanks to their Tucker saddles. I am very happy and proud to be riding these long-distance trails in a Tucker saddle.
