High Horse Daisetta Cordura Trail Saddle

Designed to fit horses with a more prominent wither, the High Horse Daisetta Cordura Trail Saddle is a top choice for trail rides. But that’s not all—the High Horse Daisetta Trail Saddle is actually a top contender for a variety of horses.

As horseback riders, our equine buddies are very special to us, and they rely on us to keep them as comfortable as possible. So, it’s no wonder that this saddle is a fan favorite. Let’s take a closer look at what this saddle has to offer!

Full-On Customizations

The High Horse Daisetta Cordura Trail Saddle is a great choice if you’re looking for customization. Customers rave about the saddle’s ability to conform to horses with not-so-average physiques.

This saddle also comes in two different colors (walnut or black) and in several seat sizes ranging between 13″ to 18″, with the option to choose between three different tree sizes. Additionally, the tall cantle makes the rider feel secure under most trail conditions.

I have to say that one of my favorite features of this saddle is its weight. At only 21lbs, not only is the High Horse Daisetta Trail Saddle very easy to pick up and move around, but it’s also less burdensome for the horse. And we all know the less load a horse carries, the better its performance can be.

A Padded Seat and Fleece-lined Skirt

And that’s not all! Customers can choose between a black suede or black grain out double padded seat. The best part of this saddle is its comfort factor, with a soft cushion and just the right amount of padding to maintain stability.

The High Horse Daisetta Cordura Trail Saddle is designed with uneven and steep terrain riding in mind.

This saddle comes with a contoured, rounded, 25″ fleece-lined skirt, making it an excellent option for short-backed horses. Fleece-lined saddle skirts are also easy to clean, which is a bonus.

High Horse Daisetta Cordura Trail Saddle – And a little dash of detail…

Did you know that conchos originate from the Mexican Vaquero tradition? Why does this matter? Well, because the little details of the High Horse Daisetta Cordura Saddle are kind of what sets it apart from other trail saddles.

Perhaps its most identifiable feature is the subtle border tooling work and the copper flower conchos. Used in combination with silver hardware, this saddle has a very sophisticated design.
The High Horse Daisetta Trail Saddle also has Cordura fenders, which are exceptionally well-made and nicely designed. Cordura fabric is thick, durable, and more flexible than leather.

It provides an added comfort for the knees and does not need to be broken in. 

But it’s more than just a trail saddle.

Most trail saddles are specifically designed to keep the rider pain-free for a more extended period. But all the bells and whistles and customized features of the High Horse Daisetta Cordura Trail Saddle make it an excellent saddle for western dressage, obstacles, and endurance.

So, what’s the vote?

Every saddle tends to have a unique quality or two—and the High Horse Daisetta Cordura Trail Saddle is no exception. This saddle has everything that’s needed for a perfect trail ride.

It’s lightweight, secure, has a very comfortable seat, an adjustable flat plate rigging, three different tree sizes, durable material, and a classic look.

And the best part of all is that it is very reasonably priced at only $1,099.

If comfort and affordability are what you’re looking for in a trail saddle, then you may not need to look any further than the High Horse Daisetta Cordura Trail Saddle.

    These saddles are all beautiful! I do spend time riding at my friends ranch. I always use one of her saddles, but she is very petite. Not that I am over weight. It is just that she is super skinny, so the saddle is not always a super good fit for me. Do you think getting my own saddle would be okay?

      Hi Leahrae. Thanks for your question. Yes, I think you should buy your own saddle as her saddle is custom fit to her, not you. If you’re concerned about the price, try buying a used all around saddle.
