Saddle help

Hi everyone. I was just looking online for decent used saddles and I came across a used billy cook saddle. It is very gently used according to the owner and everything seems legitimate. I have heard that this is a good saddle brand. Any opinions? Thanks for any advice anyone may have :)

There are two Billy Cook Saddles.

One is made in OK, which is considered the better ones

The other is made in TX, they are production Saddles.

The Texas Made are not bad saddles, just do not bring as much money new or used.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

Yup, what ST said . Have the seller look on the stamp where it says it's a Billy Cook. It should say on that Sulphur, OK or Texas. The Texas saddles are manufactured by Simco-Long Horn and go for 30-50% less than the Oklahoma saddles. If you post a picture and the description of the saddle's condition, along with the state of origin, we can give you a price estimate on its value.
