Well I made the trip down to see the Dakota saddles - about 50 miles each way and worth the trip. Chuck really knows his stuff and has a lot of interesting stories too.
I brought two wire forms with me and we spent a lot
of time looking at saddles and how they would fit my difficult gelding. I ended up with model 350 that had some options on it. I was satisfied with the price, the service, and the saddle itself. On a final note, there would be no problem bringing it back as long as it was still in new condition.
The saddle fit Judge like it was made for him. I'll ride it tomorrow.

ask for Chuck and tell him Bill from West Pelzer told you about his saddles.
