The Origins Of The Wade Saddle

The first known Wade saddle was owned by a man named Aaron Wade, who purchased the saddle in the late 1800s from an unknown seller or saddle maker. After Aaron's death, his son Clifford Wade inherited the saddle. When Clifford Wade met a young cowboy and horseman named Tom Dorrance, Mr. Dorrance admired the saddle so much that in the late 1930s he had one made that was very much like it, with a few adjustments. While not everyone recognizes the names Aaron or Clifford Wade, Mr. Dorrance has become well known and respected as one of the greatest horsemen of our time, and the saddle maker who made his saddle wanted to call it a "Dorrance." Mr. Dorrance, however, called it a Wade, and the name stuck.

The Wade saddle grew enormously in popularity in the 1960s when another legendary horseman, Ray Hunt, had a Wade saddle built for himself. Since then the Wade saddle has become a constant presence in the world of the working cowboy, having gained fans from coast-to-coast.

A Wade saddle is characterized by a number of things, including:

Wade saddles have reputations of comfort for both horse and rider, and a close, secure fit to a horse without the need for an overly tight cinch.
