FLEX FIT TREE
FLEX FIT TREES
Additionally, you can find our Flex-Fit Tree with fully adjustable fork in our Flex-Fit Western Saddle Line. This tree is a semi-flexible, high quality carbon fiber tree, that provides maximum stability along the spine, yet enough flexibility on the bars to allow your horse to bend. Along with the most innovative system available, our Allen wrench system, which allows you to change the width of the fork as wide or narrow as needed. Not recommended for roping.
We also offer a one of a kind alternative to traditional trees - the Deu-Flex tree. The Deu-Flex tree has a rigid wooden fork and cantle, yet the bars and seat are of leather only, allowing for great flexibility, without losing stability and the true Western Feel. The Leather tree has a great advantage, lasts a very long time and conforms nicely to your horses back, for maximum performance and comfort. The Deu-Flex tree is not considered to be treeless. It is in fact a full tree made entirely of leather. Many layers of high quality vegetable tanned saddle skirting leather are layered on top one another, glued and stitched, to shape a tree.

From now on all Flex Fit models can be ordered with an equitation seat and equitation fenders. The changed built of the seat provides a deep, straight dressage seat. The equitation fenders are moved back, immediately placing the riders leg perfectly underneath them.
Please note that the pictured leather colors are not necessarily true to tone, and serve only as a sample photo. With leather being a natural product, slight differences are possible as well as small scarring. These are not production errors, but rather a sign of authenticity and high quality leather. Depending on your computer screen and resolution settings, colors may differ and guarantees are not given.
When we build your saddle, we are committed to using only the best vegetable tanned leather we can get our hands on. We are offering a large variety of colors to choose from, leaving you with only one question: Which one is your favorite? The appearance of your saddle is greatly influenced by a combination of Saddle Leather (Smooth Leather) and Seat Leather (Nappa- or Nubuck Leather).
You can choose from three different types of leather when deciding on your seat leather. Nappa Leather is a soft leather, with a lightly structured surface. Nubuck & Aspen Leather is of velvet-like feel with a rough out structure on the surface, which helps tremendously with adherence. Special colors available upon request (Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, pattern, etc.) - upcharge applies.
To individualize your DP saddle you can chose from different trimming and braiding options. Please don't hesitate to contact us, we will gladly help you find what you are looking for and walk you through the process.
Please ask about options! Errors, changes, and color deviations possible. (not available for all models)

The term "rigging" is used to refer to how the cinch strap attaches to the saddle to hold the saddle in place.
Most popular riggings are C and D Rings. Most of our riggings are built In-Skirt, meaning that the rings are directly built into the leather skirting of the saddle. Because of that, there is very little material between the riders leg and the horse and enables a closer contact and correct riding aids. Rigging options are model-dependent - Please ask us! Errors, changes, and color deviations possible.
