I love love love love my Tex Tan! It's an all purpose, and it's extremly comfortable. I've used it for everything from barrel racing to team penning to trail riding and western pleasure. Tex Tans are very nice, well made saddles. Most come with the Tex Flex tree, which is great if you have a variety of horses to ride. I've had mine for going on 8 years and with a good cleaning, it still looks brand new. Can't say enough good things about the Tex Tans!
I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.
