    The Trooper is the only Tucker saddle that has that suspended seat that "floats" above the rest of the saddle like the UP you showed. I understand the Trooper saddles are used more often by riders who follow Field Trialers (i.e., bird dog hunts); I've personally never run into one at an Endurance ride or CTR - not to say nobody uses one, but they're apparently not as common as the Endurance style, at least in the SE.
    Thank you.

    I knew about the Trooper. Didn't know for sure about the others. Nice to know for the future.

    Comfy and well built saddle. Well worth the price.

    I've ridden in mine quite a bit and we did a 12 mile ride last weekend with quite a few decent changes in elevation. Usually after that long in the saddle I'm ready to be OUT of the saddle, but no such feeling this time. I didn't even think about it until I dismounted and hit the ground. Then I knew exactly how long I had been in the tack...
