Draft horse saddles are used for draft horses or draft cross horses. They are usually made of leather and built on wood trees with engineered draft horse trees and gullets. They are commonly used for general-purpose riding and endurance riding. These saddles have attractive designs and a comfortable fit.
Types of Draft Horse Saddles
Kinds of Draft Horse Saddles include the following:
Standard draft horse saddles
Standard draft horse saddles are ideal for regular-size horses. They are close contact saddles that provide a comfortable fit to both the rider and the horse. Most models have draft flex trees with flared bars for a perfect and comfortable fit to the back of a draft horse. The tree in most models is made of fiberglass or wood, providing enough strength and durability.
Most models feature a synthetic underside, off billet, and nylon latigo.
Light draft horse saddles
Light draft horse saddles feature a lightweight design, making them ideal for larger horses. Most models are made of cordura or leather that weighs about 18 to 20 pounds only, allowing easy lifting on the horse's back. Most models feature draft tree that comes with flat, flared bars.
They are available in various sizes, tooling, skirt styles, and colors.
Choosing Draft Horse Saddles (Buying tips)
Draft saddle tree: Choose a draft horse saddle that comes with a tree made of fiberglass or covered wood for added strength and durability.
Seat: Make sure that the seat of your draft horse saddle is padded with synthetic foam that provides comfort. You can have it upgrade to mock wool or real wool fleece for added protection.
