Description

Reenactors and mounted police units will find this saddle both affordable, durable and authentic looking. Since the old McClellan saddles were made on rigid trees to fit army bred, slab sided thoroughbreds they are inappropriate for use on modern horses which usually have a wider conformation. The Modern Military saddle is built on a spring tree with an adjustable forged steel head. It can be custom fitted to almost any modern horse. The wool flock stuffed panels can be further adjusted to make this saddle comfortable for horse.

The seat is is comfortably deep for security and softly padded for comfort. (Shhhhh, we won't tell anyone) Medium twist. When rider is mounted, the ample brass dees, rings and other hardware, give a suitably "military" look. Add hooded stirrups and the look will be complete. Full grain cowhide throughout. With proper care, this saddle will last for many years.

NOTE: All Smith-Worthington saddles have strong steel reinforced trees that can be modified many times as your horse matures and changes shape throughout its life.

We now offer custom tree adjustment with the purchase of each saddle. There is no additional charge for this service. For best results, diagrams should be recently drawn....within 3 months.


The saddle industry has never standardized tree width sizing. Therefore, Smith-Worthington's "WIDE" might fit like a "MEDIUM" from another company. For best fit, we recommend drawing diagrams of your horse's back by following instructions in our saddle fitting guide
