Mounted Shooter Saddle

Additional Information

The Mounted Shooter Saddle is made the  traditional, time honored way using a rawhide covered wood tree and  leather ground work over a tin strainer. This saddle brings together a  great combination of qualities needed in today's mounted shooting  competition: Durability–constructed with select 13-15oz. leather  over a Steele Saddle Tree, LLC tree, with stainless steel hardware.  Built to last and handle the demands of the competition circuit. Style–Sam  Stagg rigging with leather covered stainless steel dees. A unique  combination of period styling and today's comfort allow us to offer you a  saddle with the authentic look you're after and yet have the feel of a  competition saddle.

Tree: Mounted  Shooter Tree, made of Southern Yellow Pine covered Rawhide.  Manufactured 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.
