Question What is the best reining saddle?

Hey everyone,

I currently own a barrel racing saddle but I am thinking of selling or part- exchanging it and getting a reining saddle.
Where I ride everybody says Billie Cook saddles are the best. Are they really?

Thanks for your help,

British_reiner

I am also looking for a reining saddle in Canada. I don't really like Billy cooks there all factory made. Look and bobs custom saddles!

What is your price range?? Are you open to a used saddle??

You can pick up a nice used saddle from about $1000 on up. For the price Saddle Smith saddle are quite nice especially the older ones.

I would stay away from brands like Saddle Y and such. They are the low end of stock saddles and are not that good in comparison to the many of the others.

Bobs are nice but tend to be on the wide side. They are also more of a production saddle until you get into the higher end.

There are so many different ones even with in each brand. If you have access to a trainer who has multiple saddle to try that is the best way to go.

Thank you both for your quick replies. I will follow nrhareiners advice and ask my trainer to try various saddles.
Tasia, I hope you find the saddle you want :)

Billy Cooks are well made wether they are factory made or not. They are definitely not junk that's for sure. The billy cook reiners are really nice and comfortable I have found. We ride in Billy Cooks and find they fit everything nicely.
