Your Dream Saddle?

Okay, so we all have these wonderful dream saddle we hope to own one day. Maybe some of us have several I just thought it would be fun to show pictures of what saddle you would buy if someone told you, "Okay I will buy you your dream saddle, no matter the price."

My dream saddle:

Flexible Tree Tex Tan Hereford Trail Saddle

Buy a saddle that looks just as good as it performs. Tex Tan's beautiful Flexible Tree Trail saddle has the durability and fine craftsmanship you're looking for. This saddle's special features include a full grain padded seat, crupper dee, soft fenders and jockeys, saddle strings, trail hardware, and laced 3" bell stirrups.

With a darker oil (like the color my current saddle is, I HATE ultra light oil), and a black seat. Different tooling as well. I prefer acorn leaf edging with basket weave. Like this: I guess the only thing I actually like is the silver! Lol, but a Blue Ribbon is definitely my dream saddle.

Thats actually a pretty good deal on a Vic Bennet. I worked for Vic for a couple months and his saddles are amazing! He has one he just finished building for himself and it took him over 20 hours just to the the carvings. Amazing saddles...

WPRA, AQHA and NBHA World Champion Martha Josey knows what it takes to build a good barrel racer for the ring. She began her career by winning 52 barrel races in a row and now is unmatched in barrel horse championship wins. That's why Circle Y and the Horse Saddle Shop are proud to bring you a saddle with her seal of approval on it. This barrel racing saddle features forward-hung stirrups mounted on the saddle with a swivel hinge. This keeps the rider's weight balanced and feet in the proper forward position. Aluminum stirrups with 3" rubber grip bottom encourage the correct foot placement. This saddle's special features include scalloped seat jockeys, rawhide braided horn, and silver laced cantle.

  • Color: -7 Ultra Lite
  • Tooling: Floral
  • Tree: Ultimate Durahide regular and wide
  • Silver: Brown iron
  • Leather: Herman Oak Leather
  • Rigging: 3-Way inskirt
  • Swell Width: 13"
  • Cantle Height: 4"
  • Horn Size: 4" Neck 1 1/2" Cap
  • Skirt Size: 12" x 25"
  • Weight: Approximately 26 lbs.
I hope I can sell my courbette so that I can afford it! The lowest I've seen it as was $2000.

Nicole it's a excellent price of one of his saddles, if I had the money I wouldn't even care about spending it on the saddle!

I would also LOVE a billy cook barrel saddle but my mare is so dang wide and none of them seem to be built for horses like her :(

I haven't yet seen a saddle I like that is expensive (THANKFULLY) haha, therefore I already own my dream saddle and my husband also bought me matching breast collar and bridle for it by WEAVER. I feel soooo loved.

The saddle isn't anything too special like what y'all have posted but I just LOVE the texas stars on anything and I also love the color.

Here is the headstall and breast collar! You just have to click view larger to see it.
