Saddle stools are commonly found in Western-style bars. A horse riding saddle is attached to a bar stool for customers to sit on. The bar stool is made a little differently because the top is slightly raised, thus forming a hump for the horse saddle to fit over. Your guests will think they are out in the old West Riding or on a fox hunt. Keep an eye on the height of the bar counter when fitting your saddle bar stool together.

Tips and warnings

  • Oak is an excellent choice for the wood. If the saddle bar stool does not look old and western, cover with fun foam to achieve that look.
  • Wear proper gloves for protection.
