GUIDE
 
The RANCH ROPER is a handsome cowboy "buckaroo style" saddle with a heavy duty fork and buck rolls. It's designed for handling livestock and for deep-seated maximum comfort during long, strenuous hours in the saddle. Styled similar to a "Wade" saddle, this one has a broad, flat, sloped roping horn and slightly higher wither clearance than is afforded by the very lowest center-of-gravity style Wade roping forks. Various versions of these saddles have been popular in the Rocky Mountain region for some time for ranch work as well as for fashionable reasons. Anyone who rides one loves it and ours weighs less than traditional old-style saddles though it is on the higher weight scale compared to most of our western models.
The SMARTFLEX™ uniquely shaped tree with flexible bars andgroundseat allows the rider to feel close to the horse’s body and the movementbeneath while perfectly secure on balance point. The RANCH ROPER, like any Natural Horseman saddle, provides the confidence that the horse can enjoy the ride,too.

The RANCH ROPER is available in STANDARD (STD) and SUPERWIDE (SW) gullet widths (learn more here).
Best value in combination with the SmartSaddlePadCollection.

Highest quality veg-tanned leather.
(CAUTION: If you rope, wrangle, drag large numbers of animals weighing more than 800 pounds on a consistent anddaily basis, we recommend that we craft a saddle for you tailored to your needsand with a little less flexibility).

SMARTFLX™ TECHNOLOGY
"Welcoming" the horse’s back in motion requires that you MANAGE THE INTERFACE – which is the space between your horse’s body and the underside of the saddle. After incorporating a good saddle, this is the next most important factor for successful saddle fit when you want to give your horse the opportunity to enjoy the journey with you. With SmartSaddlePads.com saddle pads and tapered foam shims you are best equipped to custom fit the interface of your horse to adapt to individual age, top line shape and state of training.

SMARTFLX´S EXCLUSIVE, UNIQUELY SHAPED TREES ARE THE SUBSTRUCTURE AND MAJOR KEY TO SUCCESS OF ANY OF OUR SADDLES.

The very special SMARTFLX™ shape provides room needed for the horse’s back to come up in performance of any athletic maneuvers, especially ones requiring significant engagement or “collection”. Also sculpted into the SMARTFLX™ shape are the ergonomic considerations built in for the rider which enable feeling close to the horse´s body and it´s movement while securely balanced and unstressed in hip, knee and ankle joints. The “bars” and “groundseat” of the SMARTFLX™ western tree are a one-piece molded shape based on years of research and development incorporating thousands of horses worldwide. This molded piece is formed utilizing a particular, extraordinary elastomer compound material that is solid enough to support the rider and protect the horse's back yet flexible enough to allow the horse to move as nature intended and the human to feel connected in harmony. It is amazingly thin and keeps you close to your horse. Our wooden forks and cantles provide the base stability to hold the bars at the attitude and angle that our research proved was optimal. Our english saddles are constructed with the same principles regarding the spacious, welcoming shape we know is necessary for healthy, comfortable movement. English SMARTFLX™ trees are handcrafted by Master Saddlers in England utilizing digitally sculpted, laminated beechwood bars reinforced by steel head plate and thin diagonal steel bands that support appropriate diagonal flexibility. Because the SMARTFLX™ trees are sculpted to welcome the expanded “moving” horse body, there is room to accommodate an enormous variety of horse breeds and sizes.

SmartSaddlePads.com unique shimming concept provides a simple way to offer dynamic custom fit. The welcoming “hug” of our saddles’ undersides provides for a physically and mentally un-restricted equine athlete capable of enjoying full physical potential under saddle.
