    Hahah great. I'm getting mixed opinions. I guess I'll look into the repair costs and check out the tree. I still don't know what to do though! ):

    Really the mixed opinions sound like again they depend on location and availability which we can't judge for you, around here, that saddle would be sold as is at that price more than likely if as stated by the others the tree is in good condition, and it is a good fit, how can you assure a good fit, do they offer a trial, or are you going to do a trace w/ wire of the withers or?

    They do this thing where you have to purchase it and then you have 3 days from the purchase date to try the saddle on and ride in it and stuff and if it doesn't fit or you don't like it you can bring it back for a full refund within the 3 days

    It's worth the $600.

    But this saddle is FAR from new and needs repair. It's not that it's not a good saddle, it's just that for $600 I expect a little more, at least here where I am.

    What am I missing. I don't see anything about it being in poor shape. The pictures tell me it is a used saddle. We have saddles that are over 50 years old, that are still good saddle and used every day from 4 to 16 hours a day.

    In my eye it is a broke in saddle, not a saddle that needs to be tossed in the pond and then a lot of oil put in to it, before it is good for a full day of work.

    We have a saying let the pups ride the new ones and we will ride the broke in saddles.

    You do have to be careful with Billy Cooks as they are mass produced/ made in factories. I have heard that some of them have crooked/ off centre bars and gullet. Just make sure you site down the saddle to make sure everything lines up... both on the top and underside
