Double S Leather-Cordura Trail Saddle

Best Saddle Available for the $$$


I'm getting older and have grown tired of pitching 30+ lb saddles just to hit the trail. I decided to sell my two heavy leather saddles and compromise a lightweight comfortable saddle for trail riding. I wish I hadn't waited so long. You get both with this saddle. A real upper leather combined with a nylon base skirt and leg flaps. It's perfect. Super light weight even after adding saddle bags filled with water bottles. I can now use a close contact pad and it fits my wide, withered, quarter horse mare. Straight out of the box, I saddled her up and we rode two hours...at a walk, jog, fast trot and lope. I was worried about knee and ankle comfort but the synthetic leg fenders turned back and fit my foot perfectly and didn't put stress on my ankle or knee. The leg flap that covers the underside rigging was smooth and low profile enough not to rub the inside of my thigh. For the price, you can't beat what this saddle has to offer. Full synthetic saddles look super cheap, this one doesn't because the upper is real leather. Very IMPRESSED. Even if a stirrup broke like others have documented, I wouldn't care, I'd go buy a different set of stirrups and keep on trail blazing. The price is amazing for what you get. All you need is your choice of girth and you are ready to go.

Provides good contact with the horse

Stirrup broke IN HALF after about 15 rides


Bought this to use as a lightweight saddle to have for hubby who rides pretty rarely. Used it for maybe 15 rides and one of the stirrups split right in half in the middle of a ride. Luckily we were in the arena! Had the saddle for about a year and always stored inside. Could have caused a wreck, now I don't trust the saddle at all. Who knows what is going to fail next.

This saddle fitted both my and my horse's needs!


I like the color, the styling and how light-weigh it is! The seat is fairly comfortable too! Most important to me was how it fit at the withers, and It fits my tall, high-withered horse very well! Saddle absolutely does not rub on the withers, even with my weight on the saddle there's at least 1" clearance. The round skirt was another feature I needed as my gelding is rather short-backed, there's no worries about the skirt digging into his rump and sides, so I know my horse is very comfortable in this saddle. By the ways, this saddle is a bit "small" in appearance and thus would be a perfect fit for any smaller, Arab type horse.

Very light weight saddle


I bought this saddle because the easy care look. I really like how light weight it is so it easy to lift onto a very tall horse.

Breast collar


I would like to know if it has the rings for a breast collar.



Nice saddle for the price.


Used for trail riding several times a week. Nice looking. Well made. Looks like it will hold up. Love the light weight of this saddle. Replaced a MUCH heavier leather model. Fits my long backed quarterhorse well. The nylon girth strap could be a little thicker & softer, about 8" longer & have more holes punched higher up. Men might want to order a size larger to be comfortable while trotting & cantering due to a high rise in the seat behind the pommel. Would buy again.




Stiff, but lightweight and a good price


I have only used the saddle twice, as I am normally an English rider. I wanted something lightweight and inexpensive for when I went on trail rides. It's fairly comfortable, though the leather is very stiff and slick.

Lightweight and comfotable


I bought this saddle as an everyday saddle. Not for anything specific. I was impressed with how light it was and how great it looks, not to met into on how comfortable it is!!!!




Love this saddle


I had this saddle for a little over a month. I wanted to try it out before reviewing it. I haven't found anything I can say bad about this saddle. It's great for getting horses use to a saddle with our to much weight. It's easy to care for. It's comfortable and looks good. It is durable, I used it to break my young horse and it held up and didn't even scratch when it fell to the ground. I know that's luck. I ride in it hard and impressed.

Double S Leather-Cordura Trail Saddle

4.3 16


I have a soon to be 7 year old Friesian, standing 16 hands. I've been using an English saddle and recently had to change the gullet out to the white color - I think it's the largest or close to the largest. Will this type of saddle fit a Friesian well? He obviously has high withers and a wide back. Thank you, Leisa


It's hard to say as it depends on how your horse is built. The saddle has full QH bars measuring 7 ½" across and has a short skirt so it should be plenty wide enough. We do have a 10 day saddle test ride program. If the saddle does not fit as you want, we will gladly pick up the saddle.


Is it at all possible to order the Double S cordura saddle with a suede seat instead of that slick leather one. I'm an older rider & need the security, I would be happy to pay an up charge. Thanks so much, Becky


Unfortunately, we cannot do special orders on this saddle. It does have a soft, padded leather seat that is not slick or slippery, but tends to get grippier as you ride.


Do you think it will fit a high-withered thoroughbred? Is there just one size on the tree?


It may depending on how your horse is built. Typically, narrow, high withered horses need a semi-QH bar saddle. This saddle only comes in a full bar that measures 7 ¼" from concho to concho. We do have a 10 day trial on all saddle to ensure proper fit. If a saddle needs to be returned for any reason, we pay the return shipping.


I got my saddle yesterday. I tried it on my mare, it seems to fit good and there is plenty of gullet clearance, which is nice. My question is: the back of the saddle lifts up some when cinched. Is this normal or is the saddle wrong for my horse?


Sometimes when the back lifts up it means the saddle is too wide in front. If everything seems to be in the right place up front with plenty of gullet clearance, go ahead and ride in it. You can always email photos to me at cheri@sstack.com and I will be happy to look into it. You also have 10 days to be sure the saddle is the right fit for both you and your horse.


I was curious if the color is really that dark. Is it true to its color in the picture? I usually use a black saddle but if this one is as dark as it appears, thats good.


Yes, the leather areas are a very dark brown color.


What is the gullet width on this saddle? Does it have full or semi quarter bars?


From concho to concho, the saddle will measure 7 ½" across.


I am riding my 16 hand Paint on a 16.5 Crosby dressage saddle. Can you suggest the right size for Double S Trail saddle? 15? thanks


A size 15" Western saddle sounds about right. The rule of thumb is that a Western seat size should be 2" smaller than the English saddle size.


I ride in a 17" Wintec Dressage and purchased the Double S Leather-Cordura Trail in a 16".   The saddle fits me well but is slightly wide on my 15 hh Connemara, but nothing a shim can't fix.  Hope that helps.    Sent from Mail for Windows 10    


I'm trying to find a saddle to fit my round barreled, wide through the gullet (between 7 1/4" & 7 1/2" wide) Appaloosa mare. From what I have read on saddle fit she would probably be on at least a full quarter horse bar because she is wide and the gullet size as stated above. This saddle seems to fall right in her measurements and I was wondering if you get a saddle with exact measurements or if you were supposed to go with one a little bigger? This is my first time buying a saddle for my own horse so any help is appreciated! Also does this saddle have d rings for a breast collar? Thank you!


Your horse will need a saddle with full bars. This saddle measures 7 1/2" across the gullet and should fit nicely. We have a 10 day trial on all saddles and if for any reason the saddle needs to be returned, contact customer service to schedule a pick up. The saddle does not have the D-rings in the front.


If the saddle doesn't fit how much is return shipping. I'm looking for a trail saddle for a wide mare. She has decent withers and her back isn't really swayed, but is lacking top line and a bit dipped so I need a saddle that's not too straight. Any thoughts on the fit? Thanks!


You have 10 days to try the saddle on the horse. If the saddle doesn't work we cover the return shipping if the saddle doesn't fit. Could try a shim pad to help fit in the top line area.

I noticed you do not advertise 5 yr guarantee on the tree for this saddle, unlike most of your other saddles. Is there a guarantee? If so, how long? Have you had any complaints about the trees breaking? Thank you.


All Double S saddles have a 5 year warranty on the tree. The trees are made of ralide which is much, much lighter than the heavy woodedn trees. Have never had a complaint of breakage.
