Dakota Western Pleasure Saddle?
I am looking into purchasing a Dakota Western Pleasure Saddle.
I was wondering if anyone has used this brand before and whether it's comfortable and reliable? ( because it's online i can't sit on it to test whether it's comfy or not)

Thank you :-)

I have had the same dakota barrel saddle for 15 years and it has really held up and it a comfortable saddle. Still looks great except for the suede in the seat has rubbed off a little, but no one ever sees that.

My horse chiro was doing a little saddle fitting and commented on how it was a nice saddle as he was trying to bend it. I guess seeing how the tree has held up?

That was very helpful, thank you!
I am in fact buying my saddle from the same site you bought yours from :)

I never used one, but I've read nice feedback about Dakota saddles. Please, don't forget to share pics when you get it! :-)

Okay, will do :D
I've been working for ages to save up for it all i'm getting the whole new set: Saddle, saddle blanket, and fancy bridle etc....
It's all going to look fantastic when it's all together :)

I've owned a good number of saddles over the past 30+ years including Dakota. It's a nice saddle for the money and made in the USA. You can't go wrong with it, IMO.

Okay,fantastic! Thank you :)
