Many models can be ordered with Leather trees as well. Our leather trees are real trees, not to be confused with a treeless saddle,as they are handmade out of many layers of high quality vegetable tanned hides, sewn together to shape the form of a saddle tree.It would be incorrect to assume, that these are treeless. Leather tree saddles provide maximum comfort for horse and rider, andwhile leather takes a few weeks to "break in", it will provide the most true fit, close contact, and feel for the horse and rider out ofall treed saddles. Please note that we do not recommend this type of tree for beginning or imbalanced riders, as the trees will alsoshape to the rider, and can then cause imbalances. It is solely recommended for the intermediate to advanced rider, who is seekingabsolute refinement.
