After you ride, or if your saddle should get wet, clean all leather parts that have been exposed to sweat and moisture, let dry naturally, and oil.

What is the Tucker Tree? Our trees are made of wood and covered in DURAhide™. They are designed to fit the horse properly and provide ample strength while being as lightweight as possible.
1. A saddle tree with bars that have enough twist and bend to contact the horse along the middle section. Our trees are designed with years of combined experience and study. The trees are carved out of an extra large piece of wood, so the twist and bend are adequate to provide continual surface contact through the middle section of the horse which disperses the rider’s weight evenly.
2. A saddle tree with bars that have enough flare to free the horse to move in the front and rear. With our saddle tree we accomplish both of these objectives. Tucker saddles are designed with a bar flare to to accommodate the motion of a horse’s shoulders. Many gaited breeds need this accommodation and other breeds will appreciate this freedom of movement as well.
