Thanks for the advice. I will probably still try out the second one as she boards at the same barn just to see what I think of it. I will probably hold out for a billy cook anyways. Can I ask though, what is the reason you guys don't like these saddles? Is it because of the make or price or other reasons? I just want to know what you are basing this off of.
What would you guys think of a brand new Billy Cook 15 inch? Never been used, I saw it in one of our tack shops and fell in love. What would you pay for something like that? They wanted $1,195 for it in December. I almost bought it too as for the month of December they were selling everything with no tax on top. But I'm not really an impulse buyer so I didn't.
I would surely go for the Billy Cook for $1000+ you saw in your tack shop. If you take care of that saddle, you'll never have to buy another one again. It WILL last you decades to come.
