I have both a rocking r and a custom jerry shaw. There is no comparison to how much better the shaw saddle rides and fits. I would buy another if I could afford it. My saddle cost about 3500 plus tax -3years ago. They can go up (or somewhat down but not much) from there depending on tooling, silver etc. Used saddles still maintain their price and I would be surprised if you could get one for less than 2500. The one in the pic looks in great condition. It has about the same tooling and stuff as mine - I have different stirrups. I would buy it - what is the price on it?
