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 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 Western and Endurance 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 forks necessary to change size.

Startrekk Espaniola Fork sizes:

Panels:

Startrekk Treeless saddles come with detachable Velcro panels that can be placed where needed.

When you order a saddle from us, the standard panels that will be delivered with your saddle are always Felt, ca. 1 cm. The other panels have to be made and special ordered.

Saddle Leather

When we build your saddle, we are committed to using only the best vegetable tanned leather we can get our hands on. We are offering a large variety of colors to choose from, leaving you with only one question: which one is your favorite? The appearance of your saddle is greatly influenced by a combination of Saddle Leather (Smooth Leather) and Seat Leather (Nappa- or Nubuck Leather).

Smooth Leather Colors:

You can choose from 2 different types of leather when deciding on your seat leather. Nappa Leather is a soft leather, with a lightly structured surfuce. Nubuck Leather is of velvet like feel with a rough out structure on the surface, which helps tremendously with adherence. Special colors available upon request (Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, pattern, etc).

Seat Leather

Please note that the pictured leather colors are not necessarily true to tone, and serve only as a sample photo. With leather being a natural product, slight differences are possible as well as well small scarring. These are not production errors, but rather a sign of purity of leather.

Depending on your computer screen and resolution settings, colors may differ and guarantees are not given.

Tooling

Used properly, sensible care and proper storage, we grant the owners of our Startrekk saddles a total period of 2 years.

The warranty is only valid upon presentation of the original invoice and warranty passport. Since leather is a natural product, it may have visible, small colour changes or scarring or overgrown cracks. These are not leather errors, but a sign of authenticity. Wear and tear parts (e.g. as girth/cinch, tie-strap, off-billet, girth, Anti-Fender-Slip protection, stirrup leather or silver parts) are imposed by the warranty.

Caring for your new saddle:

A warranty is only guaranteed if your saddle is used properly, preserved and maintained. Leather is a natural product and reacts to environmental influences. Keep your saddle in a dry, cool and dark room up and store it on a suitable saddle rack. The tack room should be separated from the barn.

Clean your saddle regularly from dirt and other residue with a damp cloth and mild saddle soap. In order to preserve the high-quality vegetable tanned leather in substance and quality, oil the leather of your saddle once or twice a year sparingly after cleaning with Neats Foot Oil (eg in special cases like sweat, saltwater exposure, etc.). When using Neats Foot Oil, please note that the rough leather bottom absorbs much more oil than the smooth leather side. The underside is therefore only to be treated sparingly.

Warning:

Never oil any of the Nubuck leather areas and adjoining edges of your saddle! Bright natural coloured saddles will darken when oil is applied! For leather care in between rides use a high quality leather grease (especially for tanned vegetable leather), which has an impregnating effect. All fats/greases/oils are to be used sparingly; otherwise the leather will lose its tension and stability.
