Hi,

The 1st one I would not like on any Horse.
2nd One is nice
Third one is nice.

The third ones color Natural/light Oil looks the best on a Black Horse, you should be able to get the 2nd one in a lighter color as they are supposed to be hand made.

I would check the skirt dimensions to make sure they are not too long for your Horse, slightly rounded skirts are more forgiving.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

Kevin

Style wise I like the 3rd one, but I do not like the color! Dark oil or the chocolate color looks the best. (though the circuit you show on probably will vary on the preference of dark or light oil.)

I have owned a Dale Chavez show saddle and it never broke in or got comfortable. The Billy Royal looks alright. I have also owned a Circle Y and will never own another. I prefer Phil Harris or Blue Ribbon saddles. They are much nicer and very comfy. Also check out some used Phil Harris on Blue Ribbons to get a better deal.

This is a Phil Harris.

This is a Blue Ribbon

Most people showing stock type breeds use light oil saddles.

I owned a Billy Royal before and I loved it!

Personally, they are all "over done" with the silver for my liking! LOL

Guess its a good thing I don't show anymore.

Anyways out of the 3, I would take the the Billy Royal
