Double T saddles?

Just wanted to know what you guys think about them. They aren't as good as a $2000 saddle but I think they are good for someone who doesn't have the money to get a good one. Would you show in one? Would you use a barrel one to barrel race?

Very curious.....

Save your horse's back and your butt. Don't use one. They are cheap, and a cheap saddle is going to do nothing but harm your horse. If you can't afford a new saddle, buy a cheap well made one.

Really?! I own a double t show saddle (and yes I show in it) and I like it. Don't get me wrong its not a $3000 saddle, but it fits my horse and I have had it for a year now and there is no sign of wear and I ride at least 4x a week. I don't have the money to buy a great quality and the only saddles close to me that's used is over $600 :( but I need a barrel saddle and same with the show saddle no good used saddle is close to my that I can afford.

I bought my very nice barrel saddle for $400 used. It was older but so well made it lasted this long and it still looks great.

Are you absolutely positive that saddle fits? I have never, ever seen one fit a horse properly, and have never seen a good quality one.

Thisgirl ebay can be your friend. So can tack auctions. Just make sure you know what you're buying.

I think that the doublet saddles fit issues may potentially be inconsistency. So one may fit your horse, another may not. Just a possibility.

I think every brand is going to have bell-curve reviews where you can find someone that had a positive or negative experience.

Fortunately for you, you're one that's had a positive experience with Double T.
It happens. And each person is a different judge.


You just have to go by the majority. You might be in the minority on Double T but it's due to a good experience and that's good for you.

The positive reviews come from those who don't know any better. They often don't know how to tell if a saddle properly fits and they couldn't tell you the difference in the leather from a double t to a circle Y.
