I have an older Billy Cook saddle, original made in Ok that I love, it fits my horse, its fits my behind, I feel safe and secure (all really important things for a newbie rider) BUT
It weighs 45 lbs, and I actually dread moving it from the tack shed to the trailer let alone swinging it on chey's back.
So I am searching for a lighter saddle, it seems like all the saddles I am drawn to , weigh a ton, and really good saddles,,um weigh a ton........i have one of those.
Because I do not have a saddle fitter close anymore, and I am clueless no matter how many videos I watch, I took my billy cook saddle to the shop and we used the plastic forms to see what tree it was and then went around trying it on all the saddles.
It really fit about 8 saddles well, but most were to heavy or did not fit me well, I think I finally decided on
Circle Y Mesquite trail saddle, its a non flex,
