Blue River Roper Saddle, $1,450; Dark Horse Tack
The Blue River Roper Saddle is quite a looker! The deep seat is perfect for trail riders who want to feel secure in the saddle. Of course, one of the coolest features is the skirt bags. You can store whatever you need for a long day of riding.
Double T Argentina Leather Trail Saddle, $530; Dark Horse Tack
The Double T Argentina Leather Trail Saddle is another great option! It has basket weave texture on the skirt, fenders, stirrups, and pommel. The seat is a smooth leather. I can’t get enough of the dark rich color. It’s dreamy! I bet you wouldn’t mind spending half a day or longer in that seat.

The Bozeman Flex Trail by Tex Tan Saddle rides like a dream. It has a flex tree to offer comfort to the horse, and also provides a plush, memory foam seat for the rider. That’s a win-win! The finish is called pecan with sunburst border tooling.
