Welcome to Western Saddle Fit!

Welcome to our new site!

You may know us from decades operating as Rod Nikkel Saddle Trees. In 2016, Rod retired from building trees, but we are continuing to share our knowledge about how western saddles should fit via our Western Saddle Fit - the Basics video and  Western Saddle Fit - Well Beyond the Basics video. Both are available by streaming on Vimeo, and we have a DVD of "The Basics" available via our website as well.

The blog on www.rodnikkel.com, our last website, contains a lot of information about trees and western saddle fitting. We have organized the posts into topics and have links to them in the rest of the pages in this Articles section.

For those who are not familiar with our old site, clicking the links in the Articles will take you to it. There you will will discover even more information about western saddle trees as well as western saddle fitting. For those who have read our other site, thank you! But please check out the compiled links in these articles. Who knows? You may have missed one or two of them...
