Teskey's makes really nice roping saddles, I've had one for about 8 years now really good saddle. Go to their web side, they have both new and used for sale.

Are you looking strictly for a roping saddle or would you also be open to something like a ranch saddle?

I'm partial to Association saddles myself, lots more comfortable and secure than your standard roping saddle.

Also, it's just a person preference on my part, but I won't buy a saddle without a rawhide wrapped wood tree. I'm sure that those ralide trees are probably just as good, but I still can't get the picture of their crappy looking pressure injected plastic stirrups out of my mind and I just can't bring myself to trust their trees for the long haul LOL.

The course calls for a roping saddle so I'm not sure if ranch saddles would be allowed?

Ah, I didn't realize this was for a specific purpose; college course?

Java, aren't you doing a cattle management/ranch horse type school/class?

An association saddle like smrobs uses is great, I have ridden in them too. Also a wade is a good ranch saddle and both a wade or association is made for roping and sitting in for long hours. A team roping is NOT. I tried spendy long hours in a team roping saddle and it about crippled can rope out of them but that doesn't mean they are good for sitting in all day :)

I have to echo what Cowchick and smrobs have said...if you are not going to be using the saddle to just rope in I would buy an association. I have both, and mostly team rope, but for riding colts or when I am out helping someone with cows, fence, goats, or whatever...I will always choose the association. And, both of mine are Corriente Saddles, so it's not because they are from different manufacturers.

Also, I do team rope in the association as well, it works fine for roping, you just have to work a little harder to get into roping position since you are so much deeper in the seat.

Just thinking, by "roping saddle" they probably mean any saddle that's designed to stand up to roping. They are likely just trying to stop people from showing up with trail or barrel or pleasure saddles.

You might ask if they allow ranch saddles. Like Chick said, a saddle designed for ranch work is a lot more comfortable if you're spending more than about 30 minutes in one.
