Sorry you had a bad experience, the 1st time I ever saw a Dakota was about 7 years ago when I met some people at a Barrel Racing Club, there were over 40 members there that owned one as one of the members was dealer so everyone got a great price.
Many of these people had been using their Saddles for over 10 years and they were all in great shape.
While anyone can get a bad Saddle, I can tell you one of the Biggest Names in the Saddle Industry at 3 times the price of a Dakota has a Much, Much, Much Higher Dissatisfaction rate.... just saying


May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

Just wondering what brand that is. I have recently discovered through my saddlemaker that I also have a defective saddle. Working on getting this issue resolved..

MY Dakota Custom saddle with the seat issue is still with them. I spoke on the phone direct with Jamie @ Dakota he said he had not seen this seat divot problem. They "would have replaced seat if I'd returned it with-in a year" now I do not really know it that is true of course since being asked to pay "cost". It was less than two years old new condition barely rode in low miles. "should Not have failed like this" he quoted me. Ok so now they are replacing padding/seat with different materials. Will not know until I get it back if this a good job or not. They did work on one of the shipping charges but it's still running me money. Depends on how good this looks afterwards. I will let you know.

What "sales policies" were wrong with them?
