Welcome to  Dixieland Gaited Saddles where we are celebrating over 16 years as the premiere gaited saddle maker producing the finest saddlery available for the
Tennessee Walking Horse, Missouri Fox Trotter, Kentucky Mountain Horse, American Saddlebred, Spotted Saddle Horse, Morgan, Paso and Rocky Mountain
Horses.  Each of our saddles is totally handcrafted by highly skilled Amish Craftsmen in time honored traditions unrivaled in todays production line saddle
manufacturers.   We have been serving the gaited community longer than any other gaited saddle maker in business and were selected by
"The Gaited Horse"
Magazine as 'Best of the Net' for gaited saddles.    We specialize in fitting the gaited horse,  but our wide selection of trees and styles make our saddles popular
with owners of a variety of other breeds like the quarter horse with high withers.   All of our saddles are sold directly to the customer- there are no middlemen.   
Although our regular gaited fit will fit the widest range of gaited horses, we also offer the
Equi-fit method of fitting each horse, and work individually with each
customer to ensure the best fitting saddle possible for the horse and rider and guarantee the we offer the best price for the highest quality saddles available.  Each
saddle is a work of art designed with you and your horse in mind and made to last a lifetime.   Whether you choose to purchase an in stock saddle, or a custom
saddle, we have prices for a complete saddle starting at  $1139.  We have recently added a complete line of
LIGHT RIDERSADDLES, which offer the same
quality and leather as our regular saddles, but in a lighter weight version.  
All the materials we use for our saddles are hand selected and we use only the finest USA made leather and fittings.  Each saddle is individually hand crafted and
tooled by skilled Amish craftsmen who take great pride in the quality and durability of their craft which has been passed down thru many generations.   The leather
used for our saddles and tack is 100%  No. 1 grade USA cowhide, tanned in the USA and purchased from the premiere American leather company Wickett &
Craig.. All hardware is stainless steel, Montana silversmiths or nickel plated brass.  No hardware is used in these saddles that will rust or damage the leather and
this includes screws that are used throughout the saddle.    Each leather piece is hand cut from the finest 12 oz leather and is  fitted to the saddle only after the
edges have been smoothed, beveled, hand rubbed and sealed.  There is absolutely no machine stamping or assembly line process used for our gaited saddles.    
You will not find leather of this quality and weight in any other custom saddle at this price.     
We have 11 different fits and over 30 trees designed with the gaited horse in mind, but also carry the fits used for the Quarter horse, Arabian and Draft horses.    
It is not only important to get the correct width for the horses shoulder, but also, to select a tree that conforms to the horses back.  With our fitting system, we are
able to ensure that the horses shoulder and back have the proper fitting tree.    Each of our trees are designed with the conformation of the gaited horse breeds in
mind  including the Tennessee Walking Horse, Missouri Fox Trotter, Spotted Saddle Horse,  Rocky Mountain Horse, American Saddlebred etc.  All of  our trees
are available in a standard and wide fit and carry the Steele Equi-fit and Equi-Fit Flexible name.    Our trees do not just widen the gullet, the bars and twist are
specially angled and the rock is actually designed for the different gaited breeds.   All of our saddles are designed so that they won't pinch the withers or restrict
movement and the higher gullet will not interfere with the natural nod, thereby eliminating soreness.   Steele has been at the forefront of the industry in designing
saddle trees for the gaited horse, and no other gaited saddle maker offers as many fits and options for the gaited horse as we do at Dixieland Saddles.  Before
making a gaited saddle purchase, make sure the BARS and ROCK  fit your gaited horse instead of just a quarter horse tree with the gullet altered.   We also offer
and recommend the "FIT TO BE SEEN" fit forms for you to try on your horse to ensure you get a proper fit.

"FIT TO BE SEEN" FIT FORM SYSTEM
The trees earning the Equi-Fit®  and Equi-Fit Flexible name are designed first and foremost to fit the horse's back properly, not to get by with a minimum of
material. Equi-Fit® bars require three to four inches of wood or polymer.   Proper fit is not possible with the two inches and less typically used in many trees
today.  Each of our trees has approximately eighty square inches of load bearing area.  This translates into two pounds per square inch for a fairly typical one
hundred sixty pound rider. Some very poor fitting trees have only four to eight square inches of contact creating twenty to forty pounds of pressure per square inch
on the horse's back from the same one hundred sixty pound rider. This is all too common, the improper fit being masked by the saddle skirts and pad, leaving the
rider unaware of anything other than an ill-tempered horse who steps away to the side during mounting.  The design, testing and experience used for the design of
our gaited trees ensures you the best fit and quality available.  Our rigid trees are made of wood encapsulated in fiberglass which provides for superior moisture
protection and is even stronger than the traditional rawhide tree.  More information on our flexible trees can be seen by clicking the link at the top of the page.
All of our saddles now include the  Hand Rubbed Finish which involves 2 coats of
 Skidmore's Leather Cream, hand rubbed on the inside and outside of the
leather  (prior to the saddle being assembled) so that the areas that cannot be reached when the saddle is completed are totally conditioned.  This process takes an
additional 3 days but ensures the softest leather possible on your new saddle.   
Although a majority of the gaited breeds will require the regular gaited tree, we also offer  wide trees in all of our fits (size will be determined when order is placed)
for each of our gaited fits. All  of our trees feature a 5 year guarantee and workmanship is guaranteed for one year on all of our custom saddles.   All of our trees
feature a 13 1/2"swell,  horn height 3 1/2", Cantle height 5" with cheyenne roll or pencil roll or roll back cantle.   Our standard saddles feature a deep seat
(provides additional security for the rider), and a narrow twist.  For those who prefer a flatter seat with less rise,  we also offer that .  All silver used is Montana
Silver and each saddle features all stainless hardware, leather off billet and tie strap, hand laced leather bell stirrups, padded seat, Enduro Balanced Rigging
(3-point v-rigging) or double in-skirt rigging (allows for 3/4 or 7/8 rigging).  Leather covered endurance stirrups, and many other custom options as well as a
complete line of matching tack and accessories.  Please visit our
