Built to mimic the popular Arbuckle Wade Ranch Saddle, this little brother (2285) has all the style and features our horse owners enjoy, now on a mule tree. Designed for the flatter back line of a mule, you’ll enjoy the rawhide covered mule tree, crafted for strength and durability. The 7/8 flat plate double rigging is perfect for uneven terrain. The flat plate rigging removes some of the bulk under the fenders and jockey without sacrificing strength and performance. Unlike the Arbuckle Wade, this mule version comes with a rear crupper ring. The hard seat makes long trips in the saddle a breeze, serving to keep you cool and offer easy mounts/dismounts. Like its big brother, the Arbuckle, this mule version features the same deep hand stamped waffle border tooling in your choice of chestnut or pecan. The 4″ rawhide bound cantle looks good and keeps you secure on the trail. Other features include long strings for equipment and 3″ rawhide roper stirrups. At 42lb. it’s not light, but it’s built to last generations.
