Used Saddle Pick of the Week: 15.5″ Genuine Billy Cook Roping Saddle
The “Used Saddle Pick of the Week”
Every week we scour the Internet searching for a particularly juicy bargain on a high quality used western saddle and feature it here on the WSG Saddle Blog. The saddles featured are listed for sale on ebay as of the date of the post.
The Western Saddle Guide is not the seller of the saddles featured and does not make any representations about them. We encourage all potential buyers to do their own due diligence on the seller and the saddle before purchasing.
This week we’ve found a great bargain on a solid and substantial roping saddle from Billy Cook. This is a genuine Billy Cook made by Billy Cook of Sulphur, Oklahoma, as opposed to the lesser quality saddles being made by Simco/Longhorn in Greenville, TX under the Billy Cook name.
This is a sizable saddle, weighing in at 35lbs with full Quarter Horse bars and a 7 inch gullet. The seat is 15 1/2 and suede, which is sizable for a roping saddle where folks tend to want a snug fit. It has basket weave tooling on the fork and skirts.
The saddle is definitely is well used and has quite a bit of wear, but with a well-built saddle like this there are many miles left. So, you have a chance to get a solid saddle for dirt cheap. There is no reserve on the saddle and the starting bid is $0.99!
