I would get a nice reining saddle. They seem to have a deeper seat which is nice for reining but at the same time it could be used for cutting. Im personally a fan for rocking R saddles but that is just me. Whatever you decide to go with make sure it has a good fit for both you and your horse.

Thanks for the links to the Rocking R saddles, I just might become a fan now lol. Alot of the reining saddles that I have seen don't have deep seats, rocking r ones do. I like them, but how much, they look expensive lol, might have to take my arm in trade =)

I spent $850 for my training saddle through them and a lot more for my show saddle... Im not sure what the reining saddles go for. Im on my third year with the training saddle from them and I LOVE it... it weighs around 35 lbs and is really easy to sit and I have been rough with it and it doesnt show much for wear. My show saddle is nice too... not "top of the line" but up there... and I like it so that's what matters :)

Here is a place with some prices on the Rocking R Saddle to give you an idea of what they go for.

I would just have to suggest a good roping saddle. Some of them have amazingly deep seats and they are designed for high speed torque and cow work. Plus, if you ever decided to get into breakaway or team roping, you are already ready to go. I would suggest that you just go to your local tack store and find one that you like then look around on the net cause things are so much cheaper here.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
