Ranch roping saddles are designed to give riders freedom of movement during roping while avoiding interference with the run. These saddles must stand up to the extreme pressure of roping. They are built on sturdy trees and have reinforced rigging and thicker horns, so they tend to be a bit heavier than other saddles. Easy dismount is another one of the key features of a ranch roper, so a lower cantle is a must. Roping ranch saddles also have a shallow pocket seat for positioning and deep stirrups for bracing.
