What style of saddle is this?

I'm interested in buying this saddle. It's listed as a trail saddle, but I'm thinking it's an AP or a roper. Please let me know what you all think :)

It's pretty much a roper style. Whether you could rope with it, or whether it is even a decent saddle depends on what kind of tree it is built on.

All I know is it's made by Double C Saddlery. How could I find out what the trees made of?

I would email Double C Saddlery with the model number and ask for specs on it. If you can't find the model number, email them good pics of all sides of the saddle in good lighting that are in focus and see if they can ID it for you.

Okay, the seller said she can get that to me on Sunday at the soonest. What would be a good tree once I found out what it is? The most roping I'll be doing is breakaway ( which isn't going to be putting much stress on the tree )

Wood or Ralide are the best, as is rawhide-wrapped wood. I've heard that fiberglass-wrapped wood is ok, too. Stay away from full fiberglass.

The owner should be able to look under the skirt of the saddle and tell you what is under there. It's hard to get a photo. You might try to search online for manufacturer information on that model, too.

I'm, personally, not a fan of wood trees. But rawhide-covered wood is good, and ralide will hold up for what you plan to do also.

Looks like a Roping Saddle

And looking at Double C's trail saddles...I definitely don't think it's a trail saddle. Double C Saddlery - Trail Saddles
