Anyone heard of a Billy Mealor Saddle?

I'm looking at a nice Western saddle for trail riding. It's a Billy Mealor Saddle. Has anyone ever heard of them? What's your opinion?
Thanks
Randy

Never heard a bad word against them, I know they are fairly rare. They were all handmade and then the old boy retired a while back so there aren't any more being made.

I have never heard of them I only trail ride and ride 6 days ago and go camping once a month and on those days am in the saddle 8 hours at a time. I own a Tucker Trail Saddle and have had it for 5 yrs and not a single problem. The comfort is amazing and the quality is top notch. I would recommend Tuckers to anyone

I ended up buying three Billy Mealor Saddles for my three horses. Southern you are right, they are well made for sure.
I sold my Caldwell Saddle because it was wide enough for my horse but too wide for me to ride comfortably after several hours in the saddle.
