Billy Cook Arbuckle Wade Ranch Saddle, 2182


Made In The USA

The best-selling and customer favorite 2182 from Billy Cook has been making ranchers drool for years. This perfected model refuses to stay out of our top 5 best selling saddles year after year.

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 5" 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, rope strand 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.

Billy Cook never disappoints! 5 Billy Cook he original makes some incredible products, and this saddle was no exception. It's all top quality leather and workmanship with an outstanding design. It was surprisingly comfortable from the very first ride, hard seat and all. I know it will only get better with time - as we have another billy cook ipton that my wife rides on her appaloosa.
Pros:Built like a tank, it's going to last a few lifetimes if cared for properly. You could ride it all day, and the horse will appreciate it too.
Cons:This is a heavy saddle for a quick ride - better for a working horse, but also useful if it's a big rider, as it will distribute the weight better.

Good overhall saddle. Beautiful and efficient. But... 4 I have been using it everyday now, for 3 month, in the Wyoming mountains. Mostly trail, 4 to 6 hours per day Good balance, good leather, strong saddle. Seat is very hard, which let you slide, avoiding burned skin when hours in the saddle I have also roped a little bit with it. Good roping saddle with the mule hide around the horn Several mistakes where made during order preparation, which took some time to get fixed: * Off-billet on the right side instead of a second latigo * Rope-strap forgotten * Another one shipped 2 weeks later but far too small, would not even go on/around this Wade horn ... * Stirrups are far too narrow for my Ariat roping boots ! ! ! Cannot get in ! ! ! Had to invest in other stirrups, which costed me 100 USD. HSS said they never had this problem before. * The included front cinch is very low quality. I would never use it on any horse. I was answered that it was free.... Well.... I would rather be told up front that it comes with a free front cinch tht is a toy. I would have bought a real one immediately, instead of wasting again 1 week

Best saddle ever! 5 Buying online was a little" scary" but I am sure glad I did. This saddle is so well made! The quality is unbelievable for the price point. It is so comfortable and I really feel secure riding in it. It fits my quarter horse good, no problem. I researched a lot of saddles before picking this one and I feel this is the absolute best saddle for the money. It never really felt like a brand new stiff saddle, was a easy ride from the get go. I am a middle aged woman who doesn't mind the weight of hauling the saddle on my 15.2 hd horse. If you are small and on the shorter side it might be a little difficult, but will it a good workout! lol

Should have started here in the first place! 5 I knew that I wanted a Wade saddle and researched for about a year. Contracted with a saddle maker in Greenville, Texas. He is a thief and I lost a significant amount of money, beware and check your sources. I should have stuck with Horse Saddle Shop and Billy Cook. My horse trainer recommended Billy Ccook of OK, for quality and reliability. Boy was he right, my Arbuckle Wade is a beautiful and well made saddle. The saddle fits my horse perfectly and I must say is the most comfortable saddle I have ever owned. I have ridden in this saddle now for about five months and have many miles under my belt trail riding. I cannot say anything negative. Finally the help I received from Janelle was great! You won't be disappointed!

Pretty Great for the Price 4 This was the closest saddle to what I had envisioned as my perfect saddle. Aside from the seat being slightly wider than what I would prefer. And the fenders make it hard to get your feet out in front of yourself. Other than those two things, it's great.

I really like this saddle 4 I had to have the fenders cut so I could raise my stirrups; I'm 5'5" woman. I also had to change the stirrups as they are huge. I am very pleased with my saddle, it was worth making the adjustments. I find it comfortable & not too heavy.

pleasantly surprised 5 I purchased this saddle for my stocky, broad-withered QH, and it fits him pefectly. The gullet and bars were too wide for my slimmer, higher withered QH. I find it exceptionally comfortable and well-made, love the feel of the wade tree, and expect it to last many years based on its overall construction. I've ridden many hours in the saddle with no discomfort. Honestly, I was a little surprised by how much I like this saddle. Yes, it's a bit heavy compared to most trail saddles, but it is a ranch saddle built to last, and the "pros" far outweigh this factor for me.

Great Ranch Saddle 5 This saddle fits perfectly with our ranch lifestyle. I ride a broad young quarter horse that has been difficult to fit a saddle to in the past, but this wade saddle with full bars fits him very well. Great fit for the rider also. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Love this saddle 5 I love this saddle so much I have another one on order for another horse. This will be the 3rd Billy Cook Saddle I have ordered from The Horse Saddle Shop and I can't say enough about the quality of products as well as the fantastic service I've received from these folks. They are extremely helpful with fitting the right saddle to your horse and your needs. Buying a saddle is hard enough and ordering one before trying it is even harder. These folks make the whole process a pleasure. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a quality saddle with a great fit.

Saddle for my Draft Cross 4 Love this saddle. It was difficult finding a quality saddle that fit my draft cross. He is 17-2 hands, but this saddle fits well with no issue. Seems good quality, nice look, but a little heavy at 42 lbs,but not a problem for me. I was a green rider, and studied long and researched far and wide, this was the best deal all around that I could find. Custom made is nice if you want to pay the price. My budget was not unlimited. As we know, horses are not a cheap hobby. Dave S.

I really like this saddle so far. 5 I bought this saddle for trail riding and ranch work. Went for my first ride on it yesterday,10 miles moving cows. It was a great ride even with my horse giving a couple of bucks-first time out since winter pature. My saddle arrived on time and I found Horsesaddleshop.com great to deal with.

Most comfortable saddle in my tack shed. 5 This is the most comfortable working saddle in my tack shed. The advise on fit was helpful and customer service was top notch. The first time I threw this saddle on my horse, I had three of my buddies try to "trade" me for it. After the day was over I found his saddle in my trailer, and this Arbuckle Wade was in his truck by "accident." A great saddle!

Best saddle I've ever ridden 5 I am all about trail riding and I ride for several hours almost every day. After this saddle arrived yesterday, I gave it a 20 minute test to make sure it fit and everything was good. Then today, I rode six miles on this brand new saddle at all gates and on hills, and was completely comfortable! Yes, and this is a brand new saddle, before it's even broken in! It is stiff and squeaky, but if it is this comfortable now, just imagine after break-in. I have an average sized quarter horse, and it fit him like a glove. My experience tells me this is a very versatile fit saddle. If I can work out the finances, I will buy a second one for my other horses boarded elsewhere. It's that good.

Liked it so well, we bought 2! 5 This saddle is well made from quality leather. It looks good, but also is a good "using" saddle that holds up under heave use. It's built to work in, but to be comfortable all day long. The seat helps you stay in a good position. It fits most stock-type horses with wide backs. It has a lot of strings for tying on saddle rolls or bags and has good, brass hardware that won't rust out. The fenders come pre-turned which is nice in speeding up the breaking in period. The only complaint I have is that I'm a small woman and the quality leather weighs enough to be tough for me to swing on a 16 hand horse I'm 5'2"\. But, the weight also indicates the quality, so it's hard to complain about it too much. It's no trouble to toss on a shorter horse. I like it so much, I bought another one just like it for my husband in the 17in seat. He loves it on his roping horse.

This saddle is outstanding 5 Curt, Just want to say what a great experience it was dealing with the shop. The saddle fit my horse perfectly, no more jumping around and resisting the saddle, it fits me as well 7/8 position with a slick fork, I am in contact with him easy to signal him as to when I what comes next, the quality is exceptional as one would expect from a Biilly Cook Saddle, should lsst me until I can't ride anymore.smile, just tie me on it, I have no complaints about it, it came on time, in perfect condition, couldn't have for a better experience, just wish I had bought it when I bought him in Montana in 2009.

Simply the Best! 5 This saddle was bought to replace my old saddle, so getting the right one was essential! I did bags of research, and finally, after checking out the Billy Cook range, chose the Arbuckle. I had always wanted a Wade saddle, and this fitted the bill. But buying from the Uk, I had to have trust in the company. I asked and my questions were answered. I was so pleased when the saddle arrived. I have two riding horses, and the saddle fitted both! Strange, but true! The whole saddle was a treat to look at, the workmanship, the finish, the quality of the leather and metalwork, was second to none! Well worth all the money including import taxes! I cannot find anything wrong with this saddle! Sorry, I have tried, bit cant find a thing! So well done Billy Cook saddles! The service was brilliant, I was kept in the loop and notified of any delays. I will be buying another ......eventually!Lol
