Dakota Western Pleasure Saddle?

I am looking into purchasing a Dakota Western Pleasure Saddle.
I was wondering if anyone has used this brand before and whether it's comfortable and reliable? ( because it's online I can't sit on it to test whether it's comfy or not)

Thank you

I have had the same dakota barrel saddle for 15 years and it has really held up and it a comfortable saddle. Still looks great except for the suede in the seat has rubbed off a little, but no one ever sees that.

My horse chiro was doing a little saddle fitting and commented on how it was a nice saddle as he was trying to bend it. I guess seeing how the tree has held up?

I never used one, but I've read nice feedback about Dakota saddles. Please, don't forget to share pics when you get it!

I've owned a good number of saddles over the past 30+ years including Dakota. It's a nice saddle for the money and made in the USA. You can't go wrong with it, IMO.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
