Don't guess I need a teskeys if the have a cheep tree I break too many as it is. I wondered about those ranch cutters as a whole, being suitable for actual roping. Are they ( not necessarily Teskeys but your average maker ) ??
Couldn't tell you to be honest if a ranch cutter could hold up. I never paid attention to how big the horn was. We were looking at the associations with a post horn for the little gray mare. Hubby took her for a couple of weeks to gather and ship in some tough country in CA and she started to sore. He laid her off and camped another horse so he didn't hurt her. The only saddle that I have ridden her in that fit decent was a barrel saddle and an association I borrowed from a friend. So we are figuring to try one or sell her. But neither one of us wants to get rid of her, she is super handy and loves to work.
So I think we are going to invest in a Corriente Association with a post horn. Smrobs has a Corriente Assoc. Too and she loves it. She rides all day in it. I have known guys to buy them to use while they send their saddles off to get repaired or rebuilt and they like them. Ropinbiker likes his obviously.
I think they are worth the money. I seen a used one sitting in a tack store for almost the new price so they must re-sale good too.
