Used Saddle Pick of the Week: 12″ Billy Cook Youth Barrel 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.
Checking out our Picks each week will give you some great insight into buying used saddles. Make sure to click through to the actual listing to see all of the photos and description from the seller.
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.
LAST WEEK’S PICK:
Last week’s pick – a very solid 15″ Tex Tan Hereford Trail Saddle – ended up being a darn good bargain for some lucky buyer. With 16 bids in, the winning bidder still ended up only paying $285 for this very nice saddle – A bonafide bargain.
THIS WEEK’S PICK:
This week we’ve found a real jewel – a hard-to-find Genuine Billy Cook (Sulphur, OK) youth saddle. This saddle is a 12″ Billy Cook Barrel Saddle and it’s a great little ride. It’s hard to find used youth saddles from a quality brand such as Genuine Billy Cook.
The saddle has basket weave tooling, rough out fenders and jockeys and a suede seat. There’s an amateur repair on one fender but, while ugly (you could have a professional do a better repair), it doesn’t affect the stability of the saddle.
This would be a great saddle for a youth rider, especially one who rides in competitive events.
Like last week’s gem, this saddle is generating quite a few bids at low bid prices. As of this writing, there are 13 bids but a high bid price of only $102.50.Â This one could be a real steal.
