Wade trees make darn good saddles. They are built and designed to make you a better rider, naturally. You don't have much choice but to ride in the correct riding position, and therefore, to ride one is to fall in love with one. It can almost feel like cheating. Furthermore, Bob either measures your horse for you, or teaches you how to measure your horse, before he even starts making your saddle to ensure your new saddle will fit your horse as well as you.
