Well I put in a call to Dakota and I'm trying to work with them to make me a new saddle to custom fit my horse. How fun!

TN saddlery

I have been riding a TN gaited saddle for the past 4 yrs. I weigh 300lbs and love this saddle as it has never made me sore or my horses as I have used it on several. If you call the guy that owns TN Saddlery he will tell you where the saddle is made as I told him I wanted one made in the US of A and he assured me that the saddle I wanted was definitely made here. I have no doubt it was like I said I love it and as far as quality, comfort and sensibility go it is a better saddle (to me) than my friends who paid a heck of a lot more for theirs. I can't remember his name but call him as he is very knowledgable. The one I bought was an all leather western with hand tooling. Very good quality leather and workmanship.

I have an endurance from National Bridle that states 7" gullet altho the front of the bars have a little more flare. Unfortunately it does not fit my extra wide walker.

I have no doubt a few of their Saddle may be made in the USA, but many of their Models use a Fiberglass Tree.

American Manufactures do not use Fiberglass Trees, they use Wood Trees with fiberglass reinforcing or a Ralide Tree (which is not fiberglass)

Basic costs of the components of an all Leather Saddle and labor costs tell me a 499.00 saddle is not American made.

The saddle doesn't look terrible but I'd be suspicious of the price too. You could just point blank ask him where it's made.

Maybe something with an arab tree? I have a simco trail saddle with an arab tree and it's really wide.

I just found the interesting comments about TN Saddlery that needed clarification. It is not possibe to produce a saddle in the US to sell for $299 to $499. TN Saddlery has designed and created the specs for an imported saddle that has garnered 100% feedback for over 10 years on ebay. If you don't want to spend over $500 and you don't want used, they are a great source for a moderatly priced light weight quality saddle. Most women don't want a saddle that weighs 30 pounds or more. Most of our imported saddles are in the low 20's. A wood or plastic tree weights about 8 to 9 pounds. A reinforced fiberglass tree weights about 3 pounds. Imported doesnt have to be a "bad word" if the quality is good. TN does produce American made saddles that start at about $800.00. If you are looking for a quality light weight or American made, they are worth looking into because of their great quality and feedback for the money....I should know, Im Rich from TN Saddlery. Thanks for your time, Back to my imported computer now!

Asian saddles use urine tanned leather vs oak leaf tannage in the US. Asian saddles use hardware of inferior quality vs good quality in the US. Asian saddles use inferior trees, some of which don't endure the first ride. Not an issue with US made saddles. I've been asked to repair them and I won't touch them. Should an Asian saddle cause a rider to get seriously hurt I don't want it coming back on me.
