Comments:

I absolutely love this saddle! I was not sure about it when ordering, but now I would and have recommended this saddle to anyone looking! The rings are very useful for tying or holding training equipment. The rough out has saved my butt from some violent spooks on more than one occasion! I like to feel connected with my horse, the cutouts on the saddle help to create this contact! I have ridden in Harris saddles and would rather ride in my Billy Royal! It has fit every horse that I have put it on. From a 14 hand pony to a 17.2 high withered appendix! Since getting this saddle my horse's movement has become much more fluid and he seems happier during our rides! Which makes me ecstatic! The only thing negative I can say about this saddle is that the fenders come pre-turned. It is a great thing, but the position that they were at was not where they needed to be for my height. Im quite tall (6ft). It was an easy fix! A couple of deep underside cleans with the saddle soap, a good amount of Ultra Leather Conditioner and some saddle time made it fit me just right! Also you can immediately remove the annoying new saddle squeak by pouring baby powder underneath all of the flaps! :)

This is the best saddle I have ever ridden in. It is comfortable from the first time you ride in it. The seat couldn't be any more comfortable and the rough out makes you really stick. I have a high withered but stocky paint horse that is very difficult to find a saddle for, and this saddle couldn't fit him better. If you buy this saddle you will not be disappointed.

I'm an amateur with several horses. This saddle fits all of my horses from the high withered to the mutton withered. I feel safe and secure in this saddle. This is my second Billy Royal Training Saddle. The first one has been well used and will continue to be used. I purchased this saddle so my family and guests can trail ride with me and I don't have to worry about saddle issues. It cost a little more than the competitors, but is well worth the extra cost.

Comments:

Billy Royal never ceases to amaze me. The Billy Royal work saddle is by far the best saddle I've owned, other than my BR show saddle. This saddle is very sharp-looking, comfortable, and offers everything I need whether its the rings on the saddle or something else. It also really helps that fits my coming 3 year old filly, constantly grows yet this saddle still fits her very well. This saddle is very durable and has been through a lot and in the end has come up clean. I've owned this saddle for almost a year and it looks new. Not to mention it broke in so quiety. I will always recommend this saddle to a friend, everything about this saddle is nothing short of fantastic! I'd hate to sell it! And if for some reason you do need to sell it, I'm sure you would get your money back!

This saddle is what I may say the bomb. At first I did mistake it for just being expensive, well now I know why. This saddle has great craftmanship and beauty put into to make a great product. I am just so impressed with how it fits my thoroughbred, and how it performs in general. All horse owners know how some horses exclusivley thoroughbred's have high whithers and lean backs that are hard to fit english saddles , let alone western saddles. This one has no problem! I no longer need a breast collar because this saddle stays right in place!It fits my horse well and I am impressed with what this saddle has to offer.

This is simply the best saddle I have ever owned and ridden in. I have owned it for 11 years and it still looks great and rides great. Great quality that you come to expect from Billy Royal.

I've ridden in my SAME Billy Royal work saddle for 9 years and have never had a problem. This saddle has been beaten and abused and it's still in great condition and as comfortable as when I first got it! I would recommend this saddle to anyone!
