"The Van Hargis All-Around Saddle was the first saddle I ever had an opportunity to design. I am honored that the legendary Billy Cook built it for me. Mr. Cook was my neighbor during my youth and his wife was my first paying customer. The Van Hargis All-Around Saddle has a history and a meaning that goes beyond it's outstanding quality, workmanship and design." ----Van Hargis
