Manufacturer: Billy Cook
Model: Pleasure/Reiner Model #8915 Chestnut-Running W
Category: Reining Saddles
Purchase: I purchased my Billy Cook saddle from Sprucewood Tack in Arva, Ontario. I switched over from riding dressage to riding western pleasure and a little reining. I has been recommended time and time again that Billy Cook saddle is the one to purchase...my new saddles' retail price was $1400.00
Likes: First off, I never sat in the saddle before I ordered it. When I sat in the saddle at the Tack Shop the first time I fell in love. If fit me perfect. Being "female" western saddles tend to be a "little wide" but my saddle was so comfortable that I forgot it was brand new. I went trail riding, arena riding it doesn't matter...this saddle is comfortable and "crotch friendly". Though I am only 5'-3" I am at my second last hole to shorten the stirrups, perhaps in the future I will get them professionally shortened if need be but not for now.
Dislikes: I would have like the girth that came with the saddle to have an off-cinch keeper. Mine does not so I had to purchase another schooling girth for my saddle with a keeper. To bad it didn't come with a real cowboy!!
Quality: I have my trainer give the once over and she said everything was fine. I wasn't sure at first about the chestnut colour but I really like it now and I've ridden chestnut and dunn horses with it and they look good.
Summary: I am extremely happy with my purchase and would definitely purchase another Billy Cook again. They fit a variety of horses comfortably and the rider as well. Thank you Sulphur, OK for a great saddle ... but now how about putting that cowboy in the box?
Usefulness Rating: 2.25 out of 5.
