Dakota Saddles

Square skirted, with a full skirt that can make barrel racing a dream come true. The front end of this skirt extends forward just enough. Just a touch of the silver 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. Rawhide shown is natural colored. Choose between bleached white, or this natural rawhide. Also. shown with a swirling floral tooling design. The seat shown below is a bicycle type padded black suede. Seems the bicycle seat is gaining more momentum every year! Choose your seat color between shades of suede, top grain, or exotic print seats. We can offer the latest in traditional or bright leather seats. 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.  Great for youth, or adult sizes. Jockey and fender can be turned rough side out. Shown in light oil, you can choose from light oil, golden brown, mahogany, pro brown, or black. Many 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 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.
