Long days and sore joints in the saddle have met their match! After a long ride, an ordinary saddle leaves your joints hurting, your back sore, and soft areas tender. Tucker Trail Saddles are known all over the world for their incredible comfort which is second to none. A Tucker Horizon series trail saddle will give you an entirely different riding experience. 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. Based upon Tucker’s best-selling 260 High Plains,  the Horizon series North Star has the same wide swells and deep, 5” cantle to keep you secure and supported in the saddle. The leather is truly exceptional – English bridle leather is known for its luxurious softness from the first time you use it and naturally resists moisture and the elements.

    I was riding in a Bob Marshall Treeless saddle for several years but found the last one I bought was sliding off to the side and I fell off twice. It was then I decided to go to a tree. I also bought before this saddle a Circle Y Just Be Natural thinking it would not slide with the traditional look of a western saddle and some wood in the pommel and cantal. Nope! It was so uncomfortable I was ready for a secure treed saddle with 7/8th rigging. I love the 263 Horizon, the new seat is fabulous I do not feel the tree in this saddle, it is secure and even if loose it never twists or slides. The price was higher when I first looked at these saddles but I got a great on line deal with a free B/C and Bridle to match and am so happy with my purchase I highly recommend this saddle for the leather used, the seat’s comfort, the fit on my horse and me and the superior make. I expect this to be my last saddle. I only wish I could have all of this in a lighter saddle, it is rather heavy for me to swing up but if I do it a few days a week it will be something I am always a custom to doing. I forgot to mention the beauty of this saddle I have the brown one and the tooling and the silver is awesome.
