Dakota Saddles

Our best selling barrel racing saddle, 325C, with all the features of much more expensive saddles. (And delivered for less money than you think!) This popular combination of rawhide trim on braided horn, cantle, and stirrups is always a favorite. Shown with a beautiful basket design. The seat below is green suede. Choose your seat color between shades of suede, top grain, or exotic seats. We can offer the latest in ostrich print seats, caiman alligator, or bright leathers. At first, we may wonder why anyone would want an exotic seat; but after having seen several in action, perhaps it is the excitement of "new", but riders do well in them! AJ Garafolio says a full quill ostrich seat will hold you just right. For those who prefer the traditional, this saddle is built on a semi-quarterhorse frame. If your horse requires, it can be built on a full quarterhorse tree. If you like high tech, it is available with a full flex tree. Although we have been racing on semi bars for 50 years, many people feel an advantage in the flex tree on a gymkhana saddle. Could cut split-seconds that make you money! The skirts are square which makes this a good all around ladies rodeo choice. Gives a horse lots of freedom, and has a little more lateral stability than the rounded choice. In-skirt rigging lays close to the horse, so does your leg. Stirrup leathers are designed to give you much freedom of movement when needed. PLEASE, call us with your true inseam. Stand flat on the floor with no boots on. Measure from your crotch to the floor. That is the inseam we need...not necessarily your jean size! This way, the legging system can be built to fit your needs. There is nothing worse than having to cut down the fenders and jockey after you get your saddle. Let us get it right for you at the start. Conchos with dees allow you to put those strings on for the trail ride, and take 'em off for the arena work. People usually like the feel of this deep seat on long rides. This barrel racer saddle is a great NBHA prospect as well as NHSRA. Great for youth, or adult sizes, especially, when jockey and fender are turned rough side out. Oh yeah, you can reverse the leather for a rough-out finish, or half breed finish, with no extra charges! Shown in light oil, you can choose from light oil, golden brown, mahogany, pro brown, or black. Most riders opt for our thicker bottom fleece option. We have seen other companies offering a felt bottom on barrel racers. Cultured Cowboy can even get felt for you!

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.
