McClellan Saddles

Our McClellans are now built on our own trees made in our own shop! After years of not being completely satisfied with the quality of trees available, I have decided to build them with the help of my Dad, actually Dad does most of the work. These are built with laminated Poplar, just like the originals, not plywood like most replicas now being built. Each bar is made of three pieces glued together. Both the pommel and cantle are mortised and laminated. All wood is glued together with waterproof glue. The metal arch supports are primed and the entire tree is painted white. The rawhide is natural color and much heavier. The downside to all of this is it is hard to work in the saddle shop AND the tree shop. Until we get an inventory of trees built, you may have to wait longer, but I promise you, the final product is much better! Thank you!


From the 1861 Ordnance Manual:

"Saddle-Tree.-Wood (beech)-1 pommel, made of two pieces framed together at top and glued; 1 cantle, formed of two pieces, like the pommel; 2 side bars (poplar) each made of three pieces glues together: they are glued to the pommel and cantle..."

1859 McClellan Saddle

Built on new wood tree, covered with rawhide. This is an 1859 model tree built on modified Quarter Horse bars that will fit today's horses. Saddle comes complete with correct iron hardware, hooded stirrups, fenders, skirts, complete rigging assembly and a set of six coat straps. I have learned that harness leather holds up the best to the abuse these saddles take by the average reenactor. I use harness leather that is dyed black on the grain side only. Girth sold seperately.

11", 11 1/2", and 12" seat sizes available.
3" or 4" stirrups available.
Also available in russet leather.
