Now let's look at synthetic trees.

There have been many innovations in the saddle tree world as technological advances bring about a new generation of synthetic trees. These can come in all sorts of materials.

They can often be much more adjustable than wooden trees and most changeable gullet saddles have synthetic trees.

A great option for an ever changing horse!

 

So which trees are better?? 🤔🤔
There are many tree types these days as advances are made in technology and testing. This week we’ll look at the traditional wooden trees.
They are strong and durable and are common in saddles made in the UK. They are a reliable and stable base for your saddle with a proven track record. 👍👍
They have ‘rails’ and it’s imperative that the shape and angles of these rails matches the shape of your horse.
The one downfall of a wooden tree is probably their lack of adjustability. 😕 But if you have a horse that does not change dramatically over the course of the year then they are a good option.😍
Let's talk about trees - the ones inside your saddles! What is their purpose and what are they made of? Follow our journey through the 'forest' of saddle trees.
