Manufacturer: Billy Cook
Model: Big Boss
Category: Roping Saddles
Purchase: I found this saddle at National Saddlery in the stockyards in Oklahoma City for $1099.00. I needed a size 18 because I am 6'5 and 300 lbs and they had one in stock for me to try and it worked perfect. They can be found cheaper online but I was impressed by the fact they actually had one in my size in stock for me to try on my horse to make sure it fit both of us before I bought it.
Likes: I was looking for an all around saddle for my Clydesdale that was nice enough to use in the show ring yet sturdy enough to put up with everyday riding and trail riding. This saddle is fully tooled (even on the cantle) and looks outstanding yet is very sturdy and well made. It comes fully rigged with a matching rear cinch. The rawhide used around the edge of the horn and the stirrups is very dark and you hardly even notice its actually rawhide yet you still get the great durability and it doesn't look gaudy (which I hate).
Dislikes: Absolutely nothing so far.
Quality: Very well made, very sturdy, Fully tooled, looks great, Comes in a size 18.
Summary: Great deal for those looking for a quality saddle that comes in the larger sizes on a budget.
