So after riding my horse today, I was thinking I need to get another saddle that would be a bit more pleasurable to ride in. What kind of saddle is good (western saddle) and I'm thinking of either Billy Cook or Circle Y brand, what type and brand would be good? I ride in a barrel saddle made from American saddlery 16inch seat. I need a 17inch I'm a heavy set person.
I had a circle y park and trail....now I have a billy cook roper. If given the choice over I would not have sold the cirlce y...they are they cadilac of saddles. I like my billy cook but miss my circle y.
If you go billy cook...try it out if you can...sit in it. My circle y was a 16 and was perfect for me. So I assumed 16 inch for my billy cook and prefer my daughters 14 inch billy cook, my 16 inch billy cook is really too big for me.
