Billy Cook 10-2182 Saddle Review - Watch Video
Billy Cook Arbuckle Wade Ranch Saddle, 2182
The 2182 is by far our most popular ranch saddle to date. In fact, it's in the top five best selling saddles year after year here at the shop.
If you're looking for a high quality ranch saddle that will take the abuse of ranch work and still look great at the end of the day, this Billy Cook Arbuckle Wade would be a perfect match.
Designed by Billy Cook on a Wade rawhide covered full quarter horse tree for strength and durability. A tough flat plate 7/8 rigging with rear dee provides the strength you need on the ranch without the bulk of on-tree rigging.
A hard, slick seat makes for easy mounts/dismounts and keeps you much cooler than a padded seat would.
The strong 4" horn is perched above the 9" swell, allowing you to rope and pull whatever you see fit and giving you enough room to move without interference from the pommel.
You'll love the look of the 4" cantle with rawhide binding and Billy's hand tooled waffle border around the edge.
With large Billy Cook logos and tooled signature on the fenders and cantle, there will be no question that you're riding the real thing!
The rounded skirt is crafted from a heavy top grain leather and features more of the deep hand tooled waffle border, giving this saddle some extra character.
Other features include 3" bell rawhide covered stirrups, 27 strand mohair cinch, and wrapped post horn. Long strings give you plenty of room for ranch or trail gear. Includes rear flank set.
At 42lb this saddle is built to last generations. When you buy a Billy Cook, the saddle is just a fraction of what you are getting. You're receiving a piece of history and tradition from a saddle maker that has maintained a consistent manufacturing process for decades.
