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.

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".

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 :/
