New Side Saddles

Looking for the right NEW saddle that fits you and the horse? We can build your dream saddle on an authentic Steele side saddle tree. Select an English Pleasure, Western, or Equitation saddle. Select the color and types of leather.

Have you found that Steele doesn't have a tree to fit your particular horse? "Stock" trees won't fit every horse, despite what some stores may try to tell you. We have a tree maker who can custom carve a Western or English Pleasure saddle on a side saddle tree with bars shaped specifically for your horse.

If you are looking at a Western saddle, select the tooling or engraving, silver, saddle strings, plain or stitched seat, suede or deer or calf skin leather on the seat & pommels.. Do you want a purse? Full rigging or a balance girth? Select your type of stirrup, matching saddle bags or breast collar?

On your Steele Equitation, select a set pommel placement or leave it open for movement from 20 inch to a 22 inch seat. Select suede, deer skin, or pigskin seat. Leather or more traditional linen or wool serge covered panels with memory foam. Select a plain or padded safe. What color would you like? The choices are up to you!

Do you have an antique tree that you want restored or completely rebuilt? Need that Old Name English saddle expertly restored? Let us know what you have and we can prepare a custom quote. Examples of minor repair services include:
