Dakota Mule Saddles

A Dakota mule saddle is:

  • Made by Dakota Saddlery in Alabama. They are known for making quality saddles and other tack at affordable prices.
  • Made to fit a mule as opposed to a horse. While a mule is half horse (a mule is a cross between a male donkey and a female horse) their conformation is typically different, including through the back where the saddle rests.

Below are Dakota mule saddles for sale.

From HorseSaddleShop

  • HorseSaddleShop is one of the largest saddle dealers in the country. Almost every
    saddle they carry is in stock and ships the same day.
  • Most of the saddles shown are new, but some might be used.
  • Shipping is almost always included in the price for locations in the continental USA.
  • Some saddles by HorseSaddleShop are listed twice. Why? It’s because HorseSaddleShop is one business (located in Bremen, Indiana), with two websites (HorseSaddleShop.com and eSaddles.com), and they often show the same saddle on both websites. In case one website would have a better deal on a saddle, saddles from both websites are shown.
