The swivel tree saddle is correctly known as the 1912 Universal Pattern Saddle. It is called a swivel tree because the front and rear steel arches are hinged to the boards which sit on the horses back, allowing it to fit a wide variety of shapes and sizes of horses. The 1902 pattern is a fixed tree and it came in three different sizes. For more detailed information have a look at the Universal Pattern Saddle Research site on the web.
