Roping Saddle 188
Roping Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Crates
Model: Roping Saddle 188
Category: Roping Saddles

Purchase: I purchased this saddle 3 years ago on Ebay for $700.

Likes: I really like this saddle's balance and solid build. I tend not to give a lot of thought to how I ride, but I notice that I tend to keep a better seat in this saddle than I ever had in any other saddle. I only use this saddle for trail riding and in the arena. I have never roped, but my farrier, who is a roper, loves this saddle.

Dislikes: It's too heavy for me to lift on my 16 hand trail horse!

Quality: As I said above, the construction is very solid. It is an equi-fit tree and seems very sturdy and well built. I like the D-ring rigging that is attached to the tree. The leather tooling is a nice basket weave and the color is a rich dark oil or mahogany color.

Summary: The bottom line this is a great saddle, but it is too heavy for me.
