Built To Order Hand Made Custom Saddles – Call Bob at 406-961-3978
Wade Tree Saddle, also known as a Buckaroo Saddle, Wade Saddle or Slick Fork Saddle is born of the Californio and Great Basin traditions. It’s signature characteristics are the Slick Fork topped with one of a variety of substantial dally horns; a deep seat backed up with a high backed cantle. There are countless variations on the Wade Saddle theme but the most important consideration is performance. A great riding saddle will hold up over time and provide comfort for both horse and rider. Average weight is 34lbs. Saddle weight can differ from what is listed because of fender length, seat size and the different weights of the tree's. There is no way that we can compete with the fabric saddles or the injected plastic tree saddles but our saddles will fit your horse much better which will give you much better performance from your horse and a much happier horse.

The generations of horsemen and saddle makers who contributed to this design were thinkers; people who demanded a piece of equipment that would help them and their horses do a better job. That job might be a 30 mile commute to wherever the cattle were that day to roping then doctoring or branding or finding a more refined way of communicating with their best bridle horse.
The saddle should be a beautiful, functional tool. Our goal is to pull all the elements, design, quality materials and skill together to produce a custom saddle that will be a source of pleasure and satisfaction for years to come. Our Western Riding Saddles fulfill that goal.
