any recommendations for Teskeys?

I'm considering importing a saddle to the UK and have seen a Circle T Rawhide Bossman for sale from Teskeys of Texas. This is the kind of saddle I am looking for and due to shipping costs to the UK $500 is around my budget for a saddle. Does anyone have this saddle or have any opinions on Teskeys.

A Circle T is not a Teskey's saddle. It's just something that they've picked up and are selling in their store. I love the actual Teskey's brand--best valued Western saddle, in my opinion. Circle T's, however, are junk.

okay, so is Circle T a brand I could pick up anywhere? What makes you say they are junk. Not very clued up on western saddles so just trying to get people's opinions on saddles in my price range. I'll have a look at the other saddles aswell then thank you.

They just aren't....well made, is all. Not the best trees or leather, and probably won't fit your horse well, or last long. Teskey sells multiple brands in addition to their own saddles, so I guess that's where the confusion is.

Frankly, you won't be able to find a good quality new Western saddle in your price range. You'll be better off looking at used models, unless you want to dip into synthetics, and I can't help you there.

I have to agree with bubba13. In your price range, used is the way to go but for a little more ~650-700, look at the Corriente - for the money, it is a good saddle. You might also look at SouthernTrails - Kevin is a member here.

Thanks guys may need to save a little bit more then. It's difficult to make judgement through a picture on the internet. The review I read on it didn't seem too bad. I don't do a great deal of riding - maybe once or twice a week I go for an hour or two ride on and off road so not looking for an expensive saddle that will get used for hours on end most days just something that will suit my needs as it will be my first western saddle.

I can see your point but a cheap saddle is a cheap saddle whether you ride it 2 hours per week or 50 A cheaply made saddle will not hold up even for a few hours per week and can be uncomfortable for you and especially your horse. Resale is another consideration and sometimes reviews are not written by an actual user - especially if there is only 1 or 2.

Yeah good point. Maybe I will keep saving or try and seek out some UK western saddles where I can afford to go abit higher as there would be no shipping involved.

For new, cheaper Western saddles on a tight budget, I've heard good things about the brand Dakota.
