Saddle Trees

The Saddle Kit already includes these trees, however you may wish to order extras to create more saddles or for special projects.

Our two-part trees make it easier to assemble miniature saddles, whether you are working from our basic kit or your own designs. The trees can be purchased in sets, or buy the shoulders and seats individually.

Resin tree parts can be customized by sanding, whittling or adding sclupting/epoxy putty to change the shape, and even type of tree, to suit your projects. (Resin color may vary)

Cast Lead-free Pewter trees are ultra durable and add a nice "heft" and weight to any saddle.

Available in Traditional and Classic scales.
