FS - Billy Cook Longhorn Saddle
Due to ineptitude on my local tack shop's behalf, I am now selling this saddle on my own. It is about 25 years old, in very good shape. The tree is solid as a rock. There is minor discoloration on the flaps, and the suede on the seat is worn smooth. The silver lacing also has minor damage - will take more detailed pictures tonight.

Seat size - 15.5"
Tree - I would say narrow to medium. Will measure tonight.
Color - Medium Oil

Very comfortable saddle, but doesn't fit me OR my horse. I am asking $700 CDN, shipping included, but am open to offers. Will include latigo. Sheepskin cinch also included if desired. I will consider a trade of a CC or AP English saddle, 17.5" seat and adjustable gullet, or Medium Wide tree.

If you are interested, please PM me. More pictures uploaded tonight - if you want a specific angle or measurement, please let me know.

This is it today with a bit of cleaning and oiling:

This is a close-up of the tooling on the fender, the pommel, and just behind the cantle. It can tend to discolor a bit, but I was able to bring it back with a good oil job.

Please note the minor damage on the left end of the pommel:

This is the tree. It is semi-QH at most. Let me know if you want it measured elsewhere...

This is the seat measurement. 16"

Left side:

Some minor damage to the stirrup:

Right side:

The underside. As you can see very clean and damage free!

The seat. Note the scratching and that the suede is worn smooth. I tried to bring the knap back up, but no luck.

Minor silver lace damage:

Horn detail:

Please let me know if you have any questions!
