Dakota Arabian Saddles

A versatile saddle for a versatile horse! A real pleasure to your eyes! What is a pleasure saddle, anyway? It is a saddle you expect to feel comfortable when you are in that seat for long hours at a time. The Arabian horse breed is a very impressive animal. Breeding can be Egyptian, or Polish foundation. Either way, the breed has a rib cage that usually comes off the spine in a higher position than other breeds. For this, the "Arab tree" has been developed. 

Given the immediate popularity of trail riding in a saddle designed for longer hours in the seat, Dakota has a trail model for you too. Notice the rear ring on tilt for availability of centerfire rigging. This helps fit your saddle position better, and allows you to adjust, fine tune, girth placement. Front ring is set at popular 7/8 position. 

The material Dakota uses for padding our Cultured Cowboy saddles is a superior grade of high tech material that will not compress nor deteriorate in short time. And, an upgrade to a NASA seat foam, much like a Temperpedic bed material, heat activateed to form to your seat bones, is available. The standard tree in this saddle is Arabian bars with a low cantle, but you can get a higher cantle if you would like. Also available with a Flex tree. Flex saddles have more give to them. They fit to the horse as the girth is tightened. The flex saddles give more as the horse makes its movements. This can be especially advantageous for young, or aged horses. Flex trees are not going to allow too much weight in the center of the horses' back. Weight is distributed over a large area. 

Years from now, you will enjoy the same comfort as when this saddle was new. This 5320 Arab saddle is built a little stronger than some with 2 1/5 inch stirrup leathers. This one is shown with a favored border handtooled trim, leather conchos, and chocolate top grain seat. The leather wrapped horn is there, but not so tall as to get in the way. A laced Cheyenne roll is available. Comes with 4 dees under the corner conchos, but you can easily add two more at the base of the cantle conchos. The four saddle strings you see in this picture are also included. Easily exchanged. Or, String it through the tree like the saddle your great granddad rode upon! Want some breast collar dees? They come standard here. 

We 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 properly. Plenty of room in the thigh area. Comes standard with nylon girth tie straps for a fit that gets closer to your horse. Leather is available. If you like, we can totally condition and turn stirrups for you so your saddle feels "worn-in" as you take it out of the box. Life doesn't get much better than all this! Let us talk with you about your Dream Saddle!

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.  One choice is whether to use real sheepskin or a heavy duty synthetic fleece bottom.  The better the fleece, the better you can fit a variety of horses.   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.
