Have you been looking for a Tucker River Plantation Saddle Sale? Well, you’ve found one.
If you’ve been thinking about an endurance or trail saddle, this Tucker River Plantation Saddle may be the one you’ve been waiting for. And you don’t have to be a distance rider to appreciate this saddle either. Maybe you prefer short rides close to home.
No matter your riding goals, this saddle will serve you well.
Tucker River Plantation Saddle Sale Fact #1 – Comfort
The Tucker River Plantation Saddle is a good choice for gaited and trotting horses. With this saddle, you can cover miles, whether on the trail or a competitive distance ride, in secure comfort and style.
Tucker River Plantation saddles don’t just look good, they’re built to fit you and your horse. And when you’re both comfortable and secure, the partnership you share is even better.
And part of that comfort means a proper fitting saddle made for the rigors of distance riding. A saddle that can stand up to long hours and many miles of riding without making it difficult or causing pain for your horse.
Tucker River Plantation Saddle Sale Fact #2 – Rugged Terrain
When you spend hours riding over rugged terrain, not every saddle meets the challenge. This one does.
In fact, this saddle is an endurance or trail rider’s dream come true. When you ride long distances, you don’t want to pile extra weight on your horse, especially if you’re competing in an endurance event. A light weight saddle is a must.
Tucker River Plantation Saddle Sale Fact #3 – Lightweight
Coming in at approximately 21 pounds, the Tucker River Plantation saddle is perfectly suited for distance competition. The tree is fiberglass reinforced DURAhide covered wood, making it light-weight and strong.
And just as important, no matter your horse’s breed, this saddle will fit their build. With the option of an FB (flatter barrel) medium tree width, horses with smaller rib curvature, which is common in Thoroughbreds, Tennessee Walkers, Saddlebreds, and other gaited breeds, will get a proper fit.
A well-fitted saddle means comfort for your horse and a safer ride for you. In addition, this saddle has a narrow twist up front and provides plenty of room. A deep seat pocket ensures a secure, pleasurable ride.
Here’s another great benefit to owning this saddle. If you’re prone to aches and pains in your joints, Ergo Balance stirrups provide maximum support. Your feet are put in a level position, and rubber cushioning for shock absorption decreases fatigue and strain in knees and ankles.
Convenience is one of the trademarks of a Tucker River Plantation saddle. You won’t lack for anything you need to carry with you on the trail because this hard-working saddle is well outfitted with rings to attach all your gear.
A choice of fenders allow you to ride in your preferred style of Plantation or English (stirrup leathers for posting). The absence of a horn allows you to ride uphill (when you want to stand in the stirrups and lean forward to aid your horse) and under low tree branches without being jabbed in the stomach.
Skirts are lined with felt for natural shock absorbency that won’t create hard spots like fleece can.
The smooth finish allows easy care. Making cleaning a breeze and not a chore you’re tempted to put off.
And like any quality saddle, this one is made for years of dependable use.

Hey Shalisha, I like your informative article, I agree with your statement about how important it is to have a good horse saddle, it really does create a better partnership with you and the horse. Thanks for this review, it’s helpful to have a good source of information on what a quality saddle is, and I definitely have my issues with little aches and pains(I’m getting old haha). So to know that there are saddles out there that absorbs shocks, its very helpful info, thanks again!
This is a great review. I can see that this saddle is very well suited to endurance and the rough terrain. You have described some key benefits – it is relatively lightweight at only 21 pounds. This is from the lightweight yet durable materials and construction. The visual of the rugged terrain is great, I can really visualise WHY you need a saddle like this one.
It’s unexpected but we were looking at properties on the weekend and one of them had horses. So we could be closer than I thought to needing a quality horse saddle.
I’ll come back to your website then to make the best choice.
Hi John. Thanks so much for your comment. Yes, a great endurance saddle needs to be lightweight in order to “endure” the rough terrain and the speed of the horse. 21 pounds is relatively light for a saddle. Certain types of horse events require a lighter saddle than other types of horse events. I hope that when you purchase property, you’ll stop back by and take a look at some saddles. I’m happy to help you with a selection.
Thank you again for this interesting article, Shalisha! I am always amazed at how many different saddles are available! I guess that it is very important to keep it light for the horse, especially if someone is riding longer distances.
We here in the Netherlands only have the forests or beaches to go for riding, but I believe you find many different terrains in the US, and it can be pretty stony and rugged. It is undoubtedly also essential to have a comfortable saddle if using certain landscapes; otherwise, it would be a rough and challenging experience, I guess! This saddle sounds like the right choice. 🙂
Hi Sylvia. Thanks for your comment! Yes, there are so many different types of saddles for different horse events. This trail saddle by Tucker is beautifully designed both for the horse and the rider. I hope you’ll come to the U.S. one day. And in the meantime, if you you need help picking out a saddle, I’m happy to help you with your selection.
Hi there, Shalisha. Thanks for this great Tucker River Plantation Saddle Review. From the pictures and also from your description, it looks like a super light-weight saddle. Amazing that it is also suited for rugged terrain. It really does remind me of the old saddles from older western movies. I am sure that purchase of such a saddle is definitely a great choice for everyone riding a horse (as you mentioned the variety of usage). I love your website!
Hi Julius. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Yes, this saddle looks delicate, but it’s really heavy duty. I’m in awe of the new technology that allows saddle makers to create durable, tough-as-nails saddles, while making the saddle light in weight. I’m glad you love my website. Please stop by again. And if you need me to refer you to any specific saddle, just ask. I’m happy to do it.
I am so happy I found this Tucker River Plantation Saddle Sale. I do not go on rugged terrains. At least not intentionally. However, I do need a lightweight saddle. I also spend hours on my horse each day, so having a comfortable saddle is a must too. I like how it looks in brown.
Hi there Paolo. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I don’t blame you for not wanting to go on rugged terrain. A lot can go wrong on rugged terrains. But the least of your worries will be your saddle when you invest in Tucker River Planation saddles.
And for someone who spends hours in the saddle, the Tucker River Plantation saddle is perfect for you and your horse, as you’ll both be comfortable and secure. Please stop by again.
I have never tried the Tucker River Plantation Saddle before. However, I think this would be interesting to try if I ever partake in the hobby of riding horses. I did some horseback riding and didn’t feel too comfortable. Riding a lightweight, secure, comfortable, and safe saddle is advantageous and worth the investment. However, committing to this endeavor enhances the value of the purchase.
Also, when you encourage your readers to purchase these products by egging them on, you tap into their FOMO. In other words, you stress the importance of your recommendations insofar they realize they can’t live without them otherwise. Intriguing article!
Hi there. Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. I love all of my readers and visitors – whether they’re novice riders, expert riders, or have not yet taken up the hobby. Horseback riding is an expensive hobby. It’s important to invest in a really good saddle. I encourage my readers to invest in used saddles when they’re brand new to the hobby.
Used saddles have the advantage of having been broken-in, less costly, and always have a money-back guaranteed. I hope you’ll stop by again and give this some thought. Have a great day. See you soon.
I never knew there were so many things to consider when buying a saddle. But all of your points make sense. I went horse-back riding when I was younger and all I remember is how sore I was later in the day and afterwards. It sounds like this saddle combats all those future aches with good padding and proper fitting to secure the best comfort. And not only for the rider but the horse as well. I guess a horse would like the saddle to be lighter so it doesn’t weigh him or her down too! Thanks for such an informative article.
Hi Nina. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Yes, the way a saddle is made makes all the difference in the world. The saddle maker has to keep in mind the comfort of the rider as well as the horse. It’s of no use to have a sore rider and a comfortable horse – or, a horse that’s in pain while the rider is comfortable. That’s why I think so highly of Tucker saddles. Please stop by again. And if there’s a saddle you’re interested in, I’m happy to help you with the purchase.
Great article! From someone who knows absolutely nothing about horses or riding horses, I found this understandable and very easy to read. I would like to share this in a few outdoors groups that I am in for others to read. I would also like to mention that I find your whole website easy to use and navigate around
Hi Jess. Thanks for your feedback. I’m so happy my post was understandable and relatable for you as a novice. And absolutely, please do share my site with your horseback riding friends. I hope one day, you too will become a horse rider. We sell high-quality used saddles for those riders who don’t wish to break their bank! Have a great day and come by again.
It’s very interesting to see this saddle. We just booked a horse back riding tour for summer 2022 in Yellowstone. Reading about this saddle peaked my interest. After looking over your site I never realized there were so many different saddles. This Tucker River Plantation Saddle does look comfortable compared to other saddles. It has sort of a sleek look that is appealing to me. While I’m sure we won’t have a saddle like this on our tour if I was a horse owner and liked to do distance riding this is one I’d look into.
Hi Rob. Thanks for your comment. Yes, this Tucker River Plantation Saddle is very sleek and well made. It’s the perfect saddle for trail riding. Extremely comfortable to ride in and lightweight for the horse. I hope you’ll stop by again when you’re next looking for a saddle.
The saddle has a lot of great features to protect the horse! I have not ridden in a few months but can’t wait to ride again when it’s not so cold out. I need a new saddle, and have heard of this brand before but needed more detailed features as do not want to get the wrong brand that does not last long and does not protect my horse. Love my horse blacky, and would be heartbreaking to find out my choice of saddle brought pain to my horse. I will be purchasing this saddle today.
Hi Jannette. Thanks for your response. Yes, it’s so important to take the horse’s comfort into account when buying a saddle. Riders underestimate how crucial this is. Tucker saddle company specializes in endurance and trail saddles and they’re committed to making sure their saddles are made with the horse and rider’s comfort and safety in mind. Please stop back by again. We’d love to see you.
Although I don’t ride, I love horses, and it’s good to see a saddle that won’t cause the horse pain. The Tucker River Plantation saddle looks good, and able to stand up to hours of rough terrain. I also like the fact it supports joints, preventing knee injury. I’m sure this would be a bargain for any rider.
Hi Kathy! Thanks for your feedback. Yes, the making of this saddle was well thought out. It really took the rider’s and the horse’s comfort in mind. Tucker saddles are a great bargain when it comes to endurance and trail saddles. Thanks for your comment, and please come back again.
