Using resin saddle trees

I have just finished working on a commissioned piece for a very special client. This saddle will be winging its way to Mexico today, into the collection of Luis Aguilar, who makes the wonderful resin horses you see throughout this site. So just a bit of pressure to do a good job!

Fortunately I had his own resin saddle tree and stirrups to work with. So much better than my own hand made trees, the difference in stability and not having to worry about breaking things made the process of creating this saddle so much easier and a lovely experience, I think the result speaks for itself.

Although there are plenty of resin saddle trees at Traditional and Classic scales, not so many available at the 1/6 scale I use and certainly not available to buy in the UK, but watch this space!
