Baby Camel Logo Bactrian Camel Saddles, Old & New World Saddles, Photos & Information.
The Bactrian camel almost has a natural built in saddle between their humps. Over the past thousand years few changes have been made to the Bactrian camel saddle, but there have been a few as you will soon see.

The Bactrian Camel Saddle
For Bactrian camels that have enough room between their humps the saddle below is an extremely good and simple one to make. Sitting between the humps with stirrups and two hand holds, it is a very safe setup.
Camel Hobble




Basic Bactrian Saddle
Hand made in Mongolia out of camel and horse hair. On this camel the humps are too close together in the middle so a pad is added between them to elevate the saddle, making room for a rider.
Fancy Bactian Saddle
This hand made Mongolian camel saddle shows how much beauty can be put into making a fine saddle, yet it is still a simple saddle.

Saddle Frame With Polls
This wood poll frame saddle is one of the most common types because of its simplicity. The wood polls are tied together at the ends with rope, which holds the whole thing together and allows the poles to move with the body of the camel. A steel rod is bent over the front giving the rider something too hold on to.



Bactrian Pack Saddles
Below are a few different types of camel pack saddles showing some new world and old world styles.
Simple Pack & Ridding Saddle
This type of camel saddle has not changed much over the past thousand years. Its basic design makes it easy to build and repair with few tools, and the pads are stuffed with a waterproof type of grass. The only difference between the riding and the pack saddle is the steel bar over the front hump, and stirrups
Camel Pack Saddle
This Bactrian pack saddle is a combination of old and new style with its wood polls, stainless steel tubing, nylon straps and plastic panniers. Putting the tubing over the humps turned this saddle into a rigid frame that doesn't move with the animal, and that's not so good.
