Roping saddles are created to endure the hard use of roping cattle. The Roping saddles designed specifically for different competitive disciplines, for example, team roping, and calf roping and for actual ranch work. A very sturdy wood tree and reinforced rigging are attached to the tree. Suede seats are often padded and have a pocket for proper positioning. This type of saddle is an excellent choice as a ranch working saddle or for a tall or stout rider. The bull hide covered wood or fibreglass tree.
Large horn makes the roping saddle good to handle the heavy wear from roping and ranch work. Roping is physically exerting on both the horse and rider, so a roping saddle is created to give a rider plenty of freedom of movement. A good roping saddle allows a rider to rope and dally a cow, and can easily dismount to go to the cow. This saddle needs to withstand the force of a cow against the rope which is dallied around the saddle horn.
