As long as it has been taken care of and is in good shape, I would buy an older Tex Tan Hereford saddle in a heartbeat. They are good quality saddles.

One of the reasons we're not seeing the same quality of saddle as those predating the 80's is because most of the cattle are butchered before two years of age, resulting in a thinner hide.

Tex Tan IMHO is much along the line of Dakota. (at least they used to be) HOWEVER todays Tex Tans are not like yesterdays Tex Tans. I feel that the quality of the Tex Tan has suffered from mass production and cost shearing tactics. Tex Tan of yester-years were good quality saddles that held up well and lasted. Today I find that they have lost thier quality and are looking more like assembly line factory types than not. But thats just my opinioin.

I like Circle Y, showed in one for a couple of years. Nice fit, goood quality and comfortable. I just whish I hadnt gotten one with basket weave tooling over the entire thing. ****** to clean esp if showing in a dusty ring.

If you find one built before 2001 they are much better than the new ones, so 300.00 for an older one in decent shape is a good deal.

are the tex tan built in 2001 (name: Blaze saddle) with a ralide tree a good saddle i found one used for a decent price. whats everyones thoughts on these
