Billy Cook Saddle Opinion

Hey! So I have the opportunity to purchase this Billy Cook saddle. I was wondering what you guys think its worth. Its pretty beat up (as you can see by the pictures) but it seems like it would do the job. I know nothing about saddles and need opinions! :P

I think the 'beat up' is just cosmetic.

Billy Cooks are good saddles.
WickedNag and peppersgirl like this.

Looks like it's one from Sulphur, OK which is what you want, and it looks like a cutting or penning saddle to me, what do you plan on using it for, and what is the seat size, and price tag? I would buy if the price is right, don't worry about the looks, because the saddle quality, fit, and comfort will make up for it with a quality Billy Cook

My friend has a billy cook barrel saddle its comfortable I personally prefer a little deeper seat on my saddles but it was definitely a comfortable nice saddle.
If it fits you and your horse and you like it I say go for it. Looks decent even being " beat up".

I just don't know if $600 is a good deal or not...

Offer them $400 and see what they say. I know things are more expensive in CA but $600 seems a little high. You can oil the FIRE out of that saddle and it will clean up pretty good. I would replace all the billet leathers though, the one I can see looks pretty bad. Let them know that's going to cost you in repairs too.....Or see if they will do the repairs in the purchase price.

They originally wanted $700 and I offered $500 and then they said $650 and I got them down to $600 eventually but they won't budge any lower than that :/
