B-Light Trail Saddle

Additional Information

The B- Light Trail Saddle is made the  traditional, time honored way using a wood tree and leather ground work  over a tin strainer. The shear simplicity of this saddle is it's real  beauty. No gimmicks here; just an honest-to-goodness saddle hand made  with no short cuts.

Tree:  B-Light Trail Tree, made of Southern Yellow Pine covered in a single  hand-laid layer of 6 oz fiberglass cloth. Manufactured exclusively for  us by Steele Saddle Tree LLC. The ground work is hand shaped using  skirting leather over a 20 gauge saddle strainer (tin seat). We shape  this leather to sit you comfortably in the saddle eliminating the need  for all the fancy-named thick padding that many are using today to cover  poor ground work.
