The horse is carefully measured to ensure the tree fits the horse's back. The wooden tree is covered with rawhide.

 

A ground seat is constructed on the finished tree to shape the seat.

 

The roughout seat has inlaid padding. The rigging, made by Jeremiah Watt, is built into the skirt.

 

The fenders are formed to hold the stirrups in the proper position for the rider.
