Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle about 7 months ago from the Saddle Shop online. I have a quarter horse mare that is hard to fit. I paid $1492.50 for this saddle. I liked the style and the fit.
Likes: I liked the way it fit my mare and me. It is a comfortable saddle and the leather is of good quality.
Dislikes: After only 7 months, my D-rings are pitted and rusting. The saddle is never left out in the rain. It is always stored indoors. When I contacted the Saddle Shop to let them know, they said that the rings are nickel plated and that if I wanted stainless steel I would have to ship the saddle back to Billy Cook and pay to have them put on. For the amount I paid for this saddle, I feel that the rings are inferior and I would not recommend this saddle to anyone.
Quality: The quality of the leather is good and the saddle is comfortable, however, the hardware is inferior.
Summary: I would not recommend this saddle. I have to say that I thought Billy Cook Saddles were high quality saddles but this experience has changed my mind. Now I wonder where else they cut corners to save money.
