Question Stallion Tack Saddles?

Has anyone ridden in a stallion saddle? They look decent. A friend of mine barrel races in one. Are they good? Thinking about buying one instead of a double T. I personally like Double T but these seem nicer. Especially where they are made in the USA.

Well a double t is not good quality. I would never consider one, ever. These are a toss up. Their barrel saddles are junk, anything that costs less than 500 new and has overly done up bling is usually a good indicator. But some of their other saddles are very pricey, so it might be a deal where you get what you pay for. You pay cheap, they give you cheap.

No mention of what the tree is made of-just busy promoting the disciplines who have supposedly bought their saddles. Stay with a well known name. If they can sell a roping saddle for $699 I highly doubt it would withstand the jerk of a large calf. Many cheaper saddles use cheaply made fiberglass trees which may or may not stand up to normal riding. I've had emails about these from riders wondering if such a tree can be fixed when it broke. Often the leathers are of urine tannage, not oak leaf tannage as US tanned leather is. I've seen stirrup leathers made from a weaker part of the hide when you want them from a strong part of the hide, to hold your weight, not stretch. I could go on.....

So then wouldn't that be false advertising? I just took a quick look at the site, didn't look much past the barrel saddles.

The website is mis-leading.... no where does it actually say made in the USA

It says tackman USA and Saddles for sale in Midwest region of the USA

I know that some of the nicer brands are getting cheaper and the cheaper brands are getting nicer. I saw a new simco at the tack shop and was SHOCKED at how gross it was. I also saw a king series and actually seemed decent. Tahoes.....YUCK...Silver fox? Some of the bridles are ok but that's it.

Can you explain how tack is gross? Cheaper brands are not getting nicer.... please provide an example. Silver fox is not an example as their stuff is still crap.

The leather of the simco that I saw was so poor. We bought a double T for my cousin for her birthday and the leather is actually really nice. I have had a few silver fox bridles that were sturdy and used a lot. I even had a suffolk bridle that was really nice.

My friend has one of their training saddles (I'm almost positive it's a Stallion anyway). I've ridden in it a couple of times, and I can't stand it. The seat is so wide it's like trying to straddle a couch, very uncomfortable. As far as quality goes, I guess it's not terrible. He's had it a couple of years now and it's still going strong. I personally wouldn't get one. Look for an older used name brand saddle. You can easily find used Billy Cook barrel saddles in the $500 range and the quality will be much better.
