Tucker saddle?

I have spent several months trying to educate myself about tucker saddles and have decided to buy one. There are two problems. I can't find a dealer with one of the two models I am interested in and I can't seam to get Tucker's saddle fit expert to respond to my calls or let me know about which tree I need to use. I sent the measurements, drawings and pics weeks ago. The local "dealer" doesn't and won't carry tucker inventory do to cost and the next two closest dealers that do are 3 and 5 hours away, if I am driving, add an hour for wife, ha. Needless to say, I was wandering if any of you can suggest another saddle maker that has a really high quality really comfy saddle that I can look in to. Tucker is said to be the best but if you can't put your hands on one it ain't worth a crap. Oh yeah I am in north west Florida if you happen to know of one I need to check out.

Wow, I'm really surprised. My riding buddy had a Tucker made a couple of years ago and the customer service was wonderful, and the saddle is pretty fabulous. We did do a tracing of her horse's withers to get tree size. I suspect the real problem may be your local dealer.

Can you try calling Tucker directly? 1-800-882-5375 or locally at 361-293-3501 - that's from their website.

I know people who have the Tuckers love them, and I was impressed by the quality. I also really liked the option to put English rigging, billets and stirrups on the saddles.

The other saddle I often hear mentioned by people who do the long trail rides are the Imus saddles.

The Horse Saddle Shop is a long way from you, but they are good people and can probably help with sizing and fitting of a Tucker Saddle

Honestly probably the quickest and easiest is to call the 3 hour saddle shops, see if they have in stock the saddle you want or one with the same seat and size, then see if they have in stock a couple different tree sizes. Then just make the 3 hour drive.

Sorry I didn't say that I actually visited both the one on Jacksonville, 3hours away, and the one in Atlanta, 5 hours. Neither of them have the old west model and neither can tell with any certainty which tree I need. "Just take it home and bring it back if it don't fit". That's all good but neither of them has either of the saddles I want in "my" size. I would order one in a New York minute from the horse town in Atlanta if I could just find out about the trees from tucker.
Oh we'll, I'll keep looking. Never know what I'll find while waiting on them to respond.

Where is the horse saddle shop???

Oh and yes, it is "tucker" I have been waiting on. Called and got transfered to the "saddle fit" lady and got her answering machine. Left her my name, number and a brief message and so far no return call. That was over a week ago. The lady in Atlanta was extremely helpful and is standing on ready to make my order for me.

The Imus does certainly look good. I think I'll give them a call tomorrow and see what they have. I don't have a gaited horse, just looking for cumfoft for my old bones and for my buddy.

Oh, I have actually been to their web site before. They do have really good prices. I am going to road to the horse in a few weeks. I may call and see if they can help with my fitting and visit them if they have the old west model in stock.
Thanks for the ideas folks.
