Cutting horse contests developed in the 1940's when cowboys began to "match" their favorite cutting horses. Buster Welch at that time was a young cowboy who won many Cutting Championships. Many of his horses were King Ranch bred. Buster and King Ranch saddlemakers developed this saddle to be light, sit close to the horse's back and have flexible stirrup leather for freedom of movement. A comfortable riding saddle, available with or without padding on the seat, the tree is still strong enough to make it a sturdy roping saddle.
Each King Ranch Saddle is made custom. Please call Customer Service toll-free at 1-877-282-5777, 9-6 M-F, for details and pricing.
