There is no 'best'. It's what fits your horse and you. A $1,000 saddle does you no good if it sores your horse.

I agree with mls. Good quality + fit the horse + fit the butt. You may end up with not-so-common brand still a great saddle for everyone.

I liked Billy Cook when I tried while back, but if I'm not mistaking there are 2 Billy Cooks (made in different state), and one is a good quality, one not so (hopefully someone will give more info as I rely on my memory only :) ).

When we were teens there was no money for specialized saddles. We made do with what we had. I barrel raced in ropers for about 10 years and had some decent times. I also had to show wp in the same saddle. No one cared then, as long as we appeared cleaned and our shirts were ironed.

Double j, catcus, bobs custom, dale chaviz, billy roal are all very spendy brands this doesnt mean they are the "best" though. Its what works for you and your horse!

The Sulphur, OK saddles are the better quality ones and the Greenville, TX ones are the not so good ones.
