Information & Saddle Fit 

Gullet width, Fork Options and Fit & Seat sizes

Our Startrekk Saddles are high quality treeless saddles, which conform to the horses back nicely and let you enjoy a really close feel, yet provide plenty of stability to ensure proper weight distribution along the horses back, without causing sharp pressure points. The Startrekk Treeless line saddles have a rigid, interchangeable fork (many designs available, from baroque to western fork, etc. see sizing information below) -OR- a fully adjustable fork (1 design only)

Fork Width: 
The Fork on all of our Startrekk saddles is interchangeable and comes in a variety of sizes to help find the best fit for your horse. On some models, it's possible to build in our fully adjustable fork system, which means the fork never has to be exchanged in order to change the fork's width and it can be done via a small Allen wrench. There's a discrete slot to insert the allen wrench, and you can widen or narrow the fork just like that!

Startrekk Comfort:

Fully adjustable fork from K1-K5 via our allen wrench system. No replacing of fork necessary to change size
