Saddle Basics

Twisted Fork Saddlery

Being a rider himself, Craig appreciates and understands the importance of a good saddle fit for both horse and rider. With his passion, driving his leather tooling, you can expect quality service and product as if it were his own.
Choosing and fitting a saddle requires an interview between saddle maker and rider to help decide which style of saddle suits your riding needs, and Craig needs to understand the fit for both the horse and the rider.
With riders and horses always being unique physically, creating the right fit is Twisted Forks' goal. Craig has the experience and know-how to ask the right questions to make that unique fitting right.
