First Saddles

First Saddles
Not everyone can Afford a $2000.00+ saddle. Even those who ride a $2000.00+ have a need for a spare, or a child, or something to resell with a sale horse. First Saddle will give you a nice saddle at a "right price".


Here is one of the best economy saddle values in America.  An arena roping saddle, that happens to be a great pleasure saddle, that happens to come in every size for your family. I call it basic, but it is better than many economy imported saddles! 

Choose smooth or rough side out on the jockeys and fenders. Shown with saddle strings front & rear. Add some front breast collar dees, a roping pommel dee and strap to hold that rope (or water bottle), extra heavy fleece, a hoofpick holder, or any of the other popular options. Comes standard with a nice flank set. 

Shown Light Oil, choose your color of leather, and of seat. Top grain padded seats are available as well as the suede. 

Give us your true inseam measurements and we can have the saddle stirrup lengths fitted for you. This is especially handy for youth, ladies, or tall cowboys! Half sizes in seats are available upon request. Built on Quarterhorse bars. 

If you have a riding school, horseback riding vacation station, or hack horses, this model and other First Saddle models are great choices. We do offer multiple saddle discounts on 6 or more models. 

The skirting leather is substantial to support your sport. There is no pressed paper product in the skirts. The tree is really a roping tree. Seat padding is designed for saddles. Stirrup leathers are not stretchy. Tall horn gives you plenty to hold on steep hills.

Basic Styles shown are usually in stock and everyday low priced as shown. We even beat the auction prices. However, there are too many options to Advertise every possible Low, Low Price on every combination! 

Our policy is to provide the lowest price possible, while maintaining enough profit to service your needs properly.  Our pricing is very fair, but we must eat a bean, or two, to enjoy helping you to select the “right” saddle for your needs.   We will deliver more saddle value for the buck than anyone because we know more about riding and fitting saddles than most! (No brag, just fact!)


Because so many First Saddles are customized for your needs with choices of smooth or suede seats, leather color, hoofpick holders, special trees, special length stirrup leather, etc., we do not use buy buttons on this part of the website.
