A Tucker mule saddle is made by Tucker Saddlery in Yoakum, TX.
Tucker saddles are known for their quality and style for trail riders. Their mule saddles have a tree and design for proper fit for a mule’s conformation, which is typically different than a horse’s conformation. Below are Tucker mule saddles for sale.
Below are Tucker mule saddles on eBay, if any, followed by other Tucker saddles. Be sure to read their descriptions carefully: While there are usually a few Tucker mule saddles to choose from, if there aren’t very many other types of Tucker saddles might be shown.
- HorseSaddleShop is one of the largest saddle dealers in the country. Almost every
saddle they carry is in stock and ships the same day.
- Most of the saddles shown are new, but some might be used.
- Shipping is almost always included in the price for locations in the continental USA.
- Some saddles by HorseSaddleShop are listed twice. Why? It’s because HorseSaddleShop is one business (located in Bremen, Indiana), with two websites (HorseSaddleShop.com and eSaddles.com), and they often show the same saddle on both websites. In case one website would have a better deal on a saddle, saddles from both websites are shown.
Tucker Saddle Seat Size Chart
If you’ve never owned or sat in a Tucker saddle before you will probably want to take a look at their seat sizing chart to help determine what size seat you will need. That’s because most riders need a seat that is slightly larger in a Tucker saddle compared to most other saddles due to the padding in Tucker seats.

A Couple Of Cool Mule Photos
Below: This is a 1908 or 1909 postcard of riders on the Bright Angel Trail in the Grand Canyon in Arizona. While it’s tough to make out, we think the second and third animals (from the front) are mules. The first one appears to be a horse……but we’re not sure.
