Love a wade saddle but not the weight.
JC Martin has developed a smarter alternative, the composite fiber Orthopedic Assist Tree.
Made of durable, strong and waterproof composite resin, these tree’s are comparable to a traditional wooden tree but without the extra weight.
The shell is reinforced with wooden inserts for superior rigging strength. lb for lb this is stronger than a wooden tree.

Trail riding 10 year warranty

An average wade saddle with a wooden tree – 45-50 lbs
A composite tree wade is around 33 lbs
We can make them as light as 18 lbs for a full saddle for trail riding only.
