On many Western saddles they’re not easily seen because they’re covered by the stirrup fenders. (If you’ve ever adjusted the length of your stirrups, the buckle that you adjust is attached to the leathers.) Wider leathers provide more stability for your legs, while narrower ones offer greater freedom of movement.

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 Western saddles due to the padding in Tucker seats. In general, most people riding in a Tucker Western saddle (with a saddle horn) will need a seat 1/2″ larger than typical for other Western saddles.
