Dakota Saddle
Reiner/Roper (I believe 700 model)
Roping Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Dakota Saddle
Model: Reiner/Roper (I believe 700 model)
Category: Roping Saddles

Purchase: I actually bought my Dakota Saddle off ebay from a lady whose daughter had outgrown this wonderful saddle. It is a 15" seat with full quarter horse bars, but it sits more like a 14 1/2. It has the bear trap type design front with a large roper horn on it. I payed $500 for it and honestly it squeaked like a brand new saddle. The lady had indicated it was only used 10 times and I believe it! It came with a matching breast collar and large wide back cinch.

Likes: I absolutely love how this saddle sits! I can lock my legs into the front if one gets jumpy or bucky. I like the weight of this saddle as it is a heavier saddle and I'm a lighter rider on a 16 2 hand paint mare. She has never acted opposed to this saddle or gotten sore from it. It has full quarter horse bars and is very sturdy. I have ponied young horses with it and I know it could stand up to roping a large cow! The stirrup leathers are nice and stiff and now that they have conformed to my leg they are perfect! I have a secret to share with anyone that buys a new Dakota saddle. If it is a light oil saddle and you do not want to discolor it with heavy oil I did this with mine and it worked! I soaked both stirrup leathers in water for about 24 hours. Then I took them out, double twisted them, tied string around the fender skirts to the bow I like then put the stirrups on and ran a pole through the double twisted stirrups with weight on it and left them for about a week until they were well dried! I haven't had to twist them since and they ride great!!!!

Dislikes: The only thing I dislike is how far down the double skirting goes on this saddle. As you are cinching up it can be difficult to run the latigo through double, but once it is there I know it is secure, which is a great feeling! Other than that I can honestly say my next new saddle will be a Dakota!!!

Quality: Absolutely the best!

Summary: I would highly recommend a Dakota saddle to anyone looking for a new saddle or used one!
