ABOUT JIM TAYLOR CUSTOM SADDLES
The foundation of every Jim Taylor Saddle is our revolutionary ‘ground-seat’ construction. Our ground-seat is key to aiding the rider’s ability to achieve maximum balance, security & position in the saddle during the most competitive horse events. This specially developed narrow seat with a unique, comfortable pocket stabilizes the rider during the tightest turns, high speed maneuvers, & slower relaxed movements. Real, True Comfort for hard working horses.
THE SHOULDERS FREE TREE by Jim Taylor
The second generation ‘shoulder’s-free’ tree is now a part of every Jim Taylor Saddle. Our new tree has been developed with our new exclusive treemaker to keep up with the way a horse’s back & shoulders change over time due to breeding combinations & competitive event demands. Real, True Comfort for hard working horses.
THE FG TREE features a combination or an ‘association’ style swell with a quarter horse width gullet. The cantle is 3 1/4 tall with a deep dish. The bars are the ‘Arizona’ type with our special twist & flare for equal pressure over the entire horse’s back. Our ‘shoulders free’ front bar angle greatly reduces the pressure on both sides of the horse’s withers above the scapular area.
THE DH TREE originally designed as a Reiner/Cutter combination possess a thinner and taller swell with cutter style bars that lay very flat and close to the horse. The gullet is a little wider than a regular quarter horse bar and includes our special “shoulders free’ angle in the front to allow more comfort in the horse’s scapular area. This tree allows for a very narrow ground-seat for the rider.
