Tree Type



Koen Saddle Shop, custon reining and cutting saddles.
The size and body type of the horse used will influence the tree length and gullet height. The tree shape will also determine swell size and shape as well as seat size, horn type and gullet height. Some other considerations include Full Quarter Horse Bars or Semi-Quarter Horse Bars. Other types are available by special order.
