We often get asked about custom saddles (and have asked our own share of questions as well!)
Because these days, quality brands that are manufactured en masse are actually great quality for the price.
Is there that much difference in a custom, handmade saddle and factory made?
If you’d like something “custom” but don’t have the money, time – or custom saddle makers aren’t nearby to make it happen – check out western saddles by Martin. They might just be the win-win you’re looking for.

Martin's AXIS Saddle Tree
Martin saddles are meant to be customized from the ground up - and made with an AXIS true fit saddle tree crafted for today's performance horse.
Martin Saddlery manufactures their own trees to ensure top quality and eliminate age-old pressure points. The AXIS tree promotes lateral flexion and a natural range of motion. Bar design disburses weight through full, even contact with your horse’s back for the length of the bar. Flared edges on the bar tips give a range of motion the horse needs without interference.
The tree is designed to give and correspond to the contours of a horses back, and adapt with the horse’s movement through the shoulder and loin. Great attention has been made to accommodate the hard stops, turns and coordinated movements of the competitive and hard-working western horse.
Patented Adjustable Rigging
Martin saddles can now be ordered with an in-skirt Adjustable Rigging™.
There are 4 settings to allow for your horse’s confirmation, from 7/8 to full forward. You are able to move the adjustable rigging into the position that best aligns your cinch and latigo straight up and down to the horse’s heart girth.
Whether you run barrels, mend fences, herd or cut cattle, rope or trail ride, Martin makes every effort to improve your horse’s comfort under saddle and give you a secure and balanced ride.
