Price range would be good to know. I would check with Kevin at SouthernTrails - he's a member here, sells saddles, and can point you in the right direction. Western Saddles, Trail Saddles, Barrel Saddle, Ranch Saddle

Nothing like talking to a live person not just looking at pictures on a website.

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.

I'm sorry, please do not purchase a saddle here - they are horrible quality. Had a tree break underneath me. Horrible feeling. They have a two week warranty. Kid you not.

Please save yourself the trouble.

With a budget like that, you can get yourself something exquisite. I agree, talk to Kevin at Southern Trails, or talk to Jerry from Rider's Choice.

ebay seller quarterbox3 sells Bandolero reining/training saddles new for $1500. He has them in various leathers. But mostly roughout trainer models at that price. The smooth leather & basket stamped ones are more money. Bandalero Enterprises out of Celeste, Texas.

That's not bad at all. I'd look into something new and at store, which ALLOWS returns. You never know whether the saddle will fit you/your horse, so it's better to be safe.

I have a Circle Y that is extremely similar to this....you would love it. The leather is ultra soft and flexible right out of the box and the quality of Circle Y products is very nice.

I have the optional Apache seat on mine and it's great....more "grip" than other seat choices. A very comfortable, quality saddle at a reasonable price.
