I got the western leather Dr. Cook's, and so far, I love it. Nice quality leather, good color, etc. The conchos are a little cheapy looking, but whatever.
As far as the function, so far, so good. My horse seems to really like it, my trainer rode him in it yesterday and he was happy, she also really liked it. He tried to do a little crow hop on her and she was able to turn him onto his shoulder pretty easily.
So far so good! I will report again when I ride. :)
Here's a pic of him wearing it, sorry for the blurry quality of my camera phone.
