The Side Saddlery
New Side Saddles
Looking for the right NEW saddle that fits you and the
horse? We can build your dream saddle on an authentic
Steele side saddle tree. Select an English Pleasure, Western, or Equitation
saddle. Select the color and types of leather.
Have you found that Steele doesn't have a tree to fit your
particular horse? "Stock" trees won't fit every horse, despite
what some stores may try to tell you. We have a tree maker
who can custom carve a Western or English Pleasure saddle on a side saddle
tree with bars shaped specifically for your horse.
If you are looking at a Western saddle, select the tooling
or engraving, silver, saddle strings, plain or stitched seat, suede or
deer or calf skin leather on the seat & pommels.. Do you want a purse?
Full rigging or a balance girth? Select your type of stirrup, matching
saddle bags or breast collar?
On your Steele Equitation, select a set pommel placement
or leave it open for movement from 20 inch to a 22 inch seat. Select suede,
deer skin, or pigskin seat. Leather or more traditional linen or wool
serge covered panels with memory foam. Select a plain or padded safe.
What color would you like? The choices are up to you!
