Reining or Cowhorse saddle?

I'm looking into purchasing a new saddle. Eventually I plan to show LOCAL small reining shows maybe and also enter some cow horse clinics which would be little learning how to cut in a very baby kinda way haha.

-I ride everyday.
-I want MADE IN THE USA.
-I only want one saddle, I don't do the work saddle and show saddle thing

Anyone have any ideas on if I should look at a cowhorse or reining saddle? And brand ideas? I like continental saddlery saddles but maybe someone knows a better brand?

.

Cow Horse Saddles and Reining Saddles are not hugely different, some makers have shorter Horns on their Reining Saddle than a Cow Horse, but not all brands do. Some Cutting Saddle are similar to both in many ways.

It depends on the Manufacture, IMO

Since they are non-sanctioned shows, I would go with whichever fits you, the Horse and your budget

I like the Bob's cowhorse saddles.

How much are you looking to spend?

Under $3000 would be nice.... But if its made I. The USA and a good quality last me a life time deal I'd go over,

I forgot to mention, I'm 4 foot 11 so likely I would need a custom job or a used saddle with short fendes. I like a 15 1/2 seat.

Note: the horn on a cow horse saddle is a PITA when you are trying to rein, it's high and it gets in the way. Just a note:)

That's what I was thinking... The cow stuff I plan on doing would be beginner cow clinics so I'm thinking I might be fine with a little horn?

I have a Todd Jey Ranch Cutter that I use for Reined Cowhorse. I use it to school and show in. I really like it. It's custom and he will do what you want in a saddle. Very reasonble.

Thanks everyone. I'm so torn between style, color, and stuff I might put this off a while. :( I need a saddle warehouse so I can try 100 out and see what I like lol
