Dakota Saddles

If you like silver, the Dakota 601 equitation is a real pleasure to your eyes! Extra handtooled sized skirts make this saddle fit for a kingdom. Great for parades, shows or plantations. 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 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. The standard tree in this saddle is Quarterhorse bars with a medium height cantle, but you can order a higher cantle if you would like. (Regular or Full QH bars available.) 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. You can be proud to ride this equitation saddle in the show ring or in your pastures. Either place, if comfort is a priority, this saddle is for you. This one is shown with a full floral handtooled print, Montana Silver, and brown suede seat. And you can choose from floral, basket, or oak leaf designs. The pelican wrapped horn is a favorite in equitation circles. Choose your seat color between shades of suede, top grain, or exotic seats. We can offer the latest in ostrich print seats, full quill ostrich, 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. Comes standard with silver tipped leathers under the conchos. Breast collar dees are standard. 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. Life doesn't get much better than all this!

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.
