The Van Hargis Ranch Versatility Saddle had to be stout enough to rope out of, while still being suited for cattle work such as Ranch Cutting & Working Ranch Horse. It has a narrow seat which is practical for both comfort and function. The seat is narrow enough to be comfortable in all day with enough rise and deep pocket to keep one situated on those hard turns on cattle yet still just flat enough to keep the rider and the saddle as close to the horse as can be. To further enhance the saddle, we made the Van Hargis Ranch Versatility Saddle with cut-away skirts. This allows you to communicate to the horse more easily because your legs can stay in constant contact. These features, along with the leather and craftsmanship, insure that the Van Hargis Ranch Versatility Saddle offers a tried, true, and functional saddle that can be used every day, yet is attractive enough to be proud of in the show arena.
