Great Saddle The 2197 is an absolutely gorgeous saddleeven better looking than the photos and video. Supple leather, no break in time, turned stirrups, super nice cinch and flank set... A real quality product. After trying several saddles with no luck, I turned to Horse Saddle Shop. The 2197 was the second saddle I tried from them. My return was painless and easy, and Charlie was really helpful, answering all my questions quickly. I have a hard to fit 17h mare with a muscular, defined wither and big shoulders. I knew the wade tree fit but had tried other options b/c I just couldnt lift the heavy ranch saddles onto her back. I thought the 2197 would still be too heavy but it is surprisingly lightweight! Fits us both perfectly.
Pros:None
Cons:None

Best saddle for the money I ride the saddle most every day cowboying and it fits horses and myself very well. Ive been through a couple wrecks in it and it seems to hold up, I just wish it had a latigo on both sides and the cinch holder was behind the seat. When you get in a wreck and your horse is laying on his left side and you have to pull your saddle off, a billet is extremely difficult and you usually have to cut it.
Pros:Light but tough
Cons:Needs two latigos and two latigo holders, and the cinch keeper moved behind the seat.

Billy cook saddle Well, i have a thoroughbred quarter cross, 3 year old colt quarter horse and a Tennessee walker, this saddle doesn't fit any of them, i bought this seeing the reviews on it and it was exactly what i needed, everything that i exactly needed isn't in this saddle, it moves alot,rolls when you get on, have to over cinch, none of my horses have exotic body styles so you'd think it'd be easy to fit, appropriately not, very disappointed. It looks good though and the horn is nice to dally on
Pros:Looks good, nice to rope off
Cons:Doesnt fit any horse i have

Billy Cook Ranch Saddle Looked long and hard for a ranch saddle that was lighter in weight than my original one. Besides looking nice, the fit on horse, a 16 hand quarter horse and the comfort are exactly what I wanted. My horse is happy and when he jigged recently, I stayed glued in and rode it out. I can go all day in this one.
Pros:Fit and comfort.
Cons:Can't find any.

Billy Cook Ranch Wade Bought this about a month ago....the construction, the fit to my horse and the fit to me is excellent. For a all around ranch saddle and for all the ranch chores, hours in the saddle, its a winner. Well done!

25 mile endurance LD ride I used this saddle on a short LD ride this spring. Removing back cinch strap and swapping stirrups I got the weight close to 30 pounds. Very comfortable and secure saddle. Great design also . I'm a heavy weight rider ,No saddle rolling when mounting . Because the fit of this saddle is so spot on I don't have to over Cinch / apply too much Cinch pressure . Which I often do because of my weight. Nice product.
Pros: Looking Fabulous on Ride Day
Cons:None

Lighter than other Billy Cooks but just as comfortable! I had ridden a Wade Arbuckle but it was just too heavy for me to lift on and off senior female rider here\. I decided to try this model and love it! It fits my hard-to-fit horse high withers, a bit sway back nicely as well as a mutton-withered quarter horse. This is a good looking saddle and a joy to own.
Pros:None
Cons:None
