Dakota Saddles

What is a trail saddle, anyway? It is a saddle you expect to feel comfortable when you are in that seat for long hours at a time. The material Dakota uses for padding our Cultured Cowboy saddles is not cheap carpet foam like many of the other "value priced" saddles out there. Oh yeah, and there is no pressed paper lining the skirts where leather is supposed to be. The finished top layer will not peel off, because there are not lots of 1/16 inch thin layers glued together. You get real leather! Years from now, you will enjoy the same comfort as when the saddle was new. This one is shown with border tooling, and with trail rings attached to the tree for holding all your gear. Choose suede or top grain seat. (Pictured with a popular black top grain seat.) Smooth fenders and jockeys shown. Sure enough, easy to clean! Or, flip it rough side out for more security. The horn is there, but not so tall as to get in the way. That 5 inch cantle will help hold you in the seat on steep upgrades. Comes with 4 strings. This skirt design gives much freedom to both horse and rider. Add crouper rings, breaching rings, front dees placed high on the pommel if you choose. I do recommend thinking about one of our better fleece options: thicker synthetic, or real sheepskin. Let us know your inseam and we will be sure that the stirrups will fit. A flex tree is used for this saddle. This allows the saddle to fit almost every horse you ride. As you tighten the girth, the saddle goes to fitting the rib cage! This is engineered to give for the horse and rider to alleviate unnecessary pressures while riding. An In-skirt rigging lets your leg lay close to your horse. Plenty of room in the thigh area. Life doesn't get much better than all this! Let us talk with you about your Dream Saddle!

These stirrups have a "comfort" pad in the bottom to take shock, and to give better grip while mounting or riding.

Our Price:  

Our CC Prices are Too Low To Advertise.  Dakota requested that we not post our actual delivered prices.   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!)

Really, with all the many options available, these saddles are hard to price without a conversation anyway.   Thanks, Chuck

And don't forget about a matching breast collar with your saddle! Cultured Cowboy carries a full complement of tack and accessories for you and your horse.
