If you look at Billy Cooks, be sure to make sure they're the one's made in Sulphur, OK, not the ones made in Green-something, TX

Thanks for all the posts
Wow! You can get really decent saddle for this price range.

You can certainly look into Billy Cook, Alamo, and Dakota. I believe some models go below 800$. And you can always look into used ones (I'd add also Textan and Circle Y).

Looks like a Dixie Roper which isn't a bad saddle but a Dakota is considerably better at about the same price.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Ditto on the J&M Saddle. I bought one of their reining saddles 10 years ago. Well made and at an affordable price. I'm not sure if they have a website but they are located in Hazelhurst, MS and West Monroe, LA. I'll be contacting them in the very near future for a roper or ranching saddle.
