Double T Saddles a nice looking, that is where they get you.

Problem is I have never seen two of the same model that fit the same, very inconsistent.

If 350.00 is your budget, do your Horse a favor and try to find a good used American Made Saddle, it will pay off in the end.

If you can't make it well, make it pretty. People will buy it because it is pretty and it is cheap. As SouthernTrails said, your money is better spent on a good used American made saddle - and I'll add: that can be resold when you are ready to move up, for what you paid for it.

That saddle, used, is worth ~$125.00 if you are lucky.

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.

Like others have previously stated, you get what you pay for. In my opinion, you are much better off looking for a used saddle of a more popular, reputable brand. I know a girl who bought a Double T and one of the screws actually went through the bottom of the saddle...needless to say, her horse took her for a rodeo. They look just as cheap in person as they do online.

I agree with others. Had a student get one a few years ago, came with a horse they bought. I rode it once and that was one time too many.

I very much agree with Kevin. Look for a used, well made saddle in your price range. I picked up an old, used Cook for a friend last year for $300 and it was in great shape.

I actually have owned a Double TT saddle, (I am selling it right now because I have switched colors. It was pink and I'm green now) They are good quality and especially good if you are starting out and have a smaller price range than lets say a Billy Cook or Charmayne James saddle. I have owned it for a year now and it still looks brand new. I wouldn't buy it online, I wouldn't buy any saddle online because you need to see how well it fits and if it meets your satisfaction. I did enjoy my Double TT saddle, and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a saddle in that price range! :) The only thing that I would be careful with would be to oil it and and condition it before you ride in it, just to protect it from any damage that could happen to it. Good Luck!

I used to have 2....

Just terrible saddles with poor quality. The leather was basically play-dough compared to my Billy Royals.

I had these two....

I did not like them, the leather was just crap and the silver was tin.

I bought one at an auction a couple years ago and hated it.

If you want a saddle in that price range, look for used. If you're willing to spend a bit more, try Corriente. They're made in New Mexico and I bought my barrel saddle that was made to my order for $560. I have heard nothing but good things about them and I love my saddle. Smrobs on here is also very fond of them.

You can't beat Corriente for the price point. It is a well made saddle that is surprisingly underpriced but extremely well made. I had one a few years ago and the only reason I sold it (for nearly what I paid for it) was that it didn't fit the horse I just got and I felt it was time to have a custom saddle made. If not for that, I would still have it.
