Cutback Western Saddle


We call it a “Cutback western saddle” because of the short skirts and undercut swells. We have removed excess skirting front and back, making the saddle lighter and shorter. This is great for a short backed horse or for riders who just like a small saddle for looks, lightness, and horse maneuverability. Our Cut Back saddle has a modified version of traditional western saddle swells; they are undercut to allow the rider to move ahead an inch or so in the seat. The rider sits closer to the base of the withers, allowing them a balanced ride, in-sync with the horse’s center of balance. This provides a more secure seat for the rider and helps the horse carry the rider.
Traditional styling makes our Cut Back saddles suitable for most western riding disciplines and are comfortable enough to ride in all day out on the trail. It could be the most comfortable saddle you and your horse will ever own!
