I got a Steele saddle for a steal!

I have been having major saddle issues with my Billy Cook Trail 1546 saddle. I sent it back to BC to evaluate after it left marks the size of the saddle bars on my geldings back. I shipped it to them 3 weeks ago today and they have had it since the following Wednesday and still no word from them on it.

I have looked at a bazillion saddles trying to find something that will fit Red.
A stable mate has a Steele and I tried it on Red one day. I found this Steele saddle on line this week and drove 2.5 hours to try it on my boy. I am sure Red thought "you hauled me this far to ride 10 minutes?" He is a good boy about hauling though. I asked some people on line what they thought about the fit and then bought it. I went and picked it up today. It is a 9 year old Steele Old Timer and I got it for $500 and that included a neoprene girth, leather breast straps and a Fabri-Tech gel pad.

If it works out I will keep it. If not, it is going! If you read this far I wish you my best wishes (it is a really GOOD wish) and an oatmeal cookie with a cafe au lait.

That is a nice looking saddle!! Somebody took really good care of it - you got a deal, I'd say! It's already broken in and looks really comfy!
Congratulations! Hope it works for you and Red!

Thanks y'all. I hope it works out. My boy has ugly white marks on his back now that I will be eternally sorry for. Sigh.....he wasn't swishing that tail when I rode with this but we only rode for about 5 minutes up and down. It is and has been raining every since I bought it so I haven't had time to try it.

LOL it is about time something good happened for my boy, Kevin!! I might go riding this afternoon. I need to go buy a coat - I don't even own one as it is rarely cold here - but I am a sissy and riding in the cold is not for me.

If you don't like it, I will give you what you paid for it...but I really don't think its an old timer...looks more like a classic...

might be but old timer is also a model of Steel Saddles, in company to a 'Plantation', 'Slick Fork', 'Classic', 'Frontier', 'Mountianier', 'Trail Boss' and 'Outlaw'

Old Timer:



The only reason I say that is b/c the one she bought sits lower in the front end, like that classic, regardless 500 is a steal of a deal on a steele saddle, and comfort

Ok...it is not working out for me. It is a little wide in the twist for me and I can't seem to find a good rhythm in it. I like more pommels than this saddle has and so it is for sale. I would like what I have in it. I paid $500 and ran out $120 worth of gas chasing it down! So if I can get $620 I will be a happy camper!

I just bought Red an Aussie Saddle. The Billy Cook saddle is being replaced by Billy Cook, thank God. So by early January he should have 2 brand new saddles. I would still like to get a Steele with pommels - LOL I have become a tack collecting nut. My new found trail riding cousin said she can tell we are related - she is a tack nut too! I had become good friends with a girl on trail rides - turns out we are 2nd cousins I know her dad really well and her sister - just had never met her! Never know who you are going to meet on a trail ride!
