It's been gently used. It still is very much almost new. It's spent more time in my garage under a cover than on a horse. Sad, but true!
I'd love to keep it, but it doesn't make sense to do so, since I've sold the horse it fit. So...now the saddle spends all the time in the garage under a cover.
Here are some of the details:
Billy Cook Arbuckle Wade Tree Saddle (all around western):
Tree: Wade rawhide covered full Q.H. (Wide) bars---for low or "mutton" withered, or wide-backed horses.
Seat Size: 15" -- it might look wide in the pictures, but it's really not. You feel secure, don't "swim" around in it (I'm 5'4" with an average body size). It's a slick fork, so you can ride it as is, or add a set of "bucking rolls" to it to feel more held in. I've ridden in it both ways, I really like the plain slick fork better.
Gullet: 7" -- considered a wide tree.
Entire Saddle Size: 26" long---round skirt to fit both a long back or a shorter back.
Horn: 4" Post horn with wrap
Swell: 9" leather covered
Rigging: Flat plate rigging with brass hardware 7/8 position
Skirts: Artificial wool lined 26"
Cinch: 27 strand, Mohair
Stirrups: 3" Bell Rawhide covered
Pattern: Waffle border
Weight: Approximately 42 lbs.
Made in Sulphur, Oklahoma (so, it's a real Billy Cook, not a knock-off)
I'm asking $1050 and I'm willing to take an offer. I'm really interested in getting an Imus gaited horse saddle, so if by any miracle you've got one and want to trade? Ooo. That would be cool.
