Billy Cook Arbuckle Wade Ranch Saddle, 2182
The Billy Cook Arbuckle Wade saddle, specifically the 2182 model, has gained immense popularity among ranchers and customers alike. Its exceptional design and durability have made it a top choice for those in need of a high-quality ranch saddle that can withstand the demands of ranch work while still maintaining its aesthetic appeal.
Crafted by Billy Cook on a Wade rawhide covered full quarter horse tree, this saddle is built to be strong and long-lasting. The tough flat plate 7/8 rigging with rear dee provides the necessary strength for ranch work without the added bulk of on-tree rigging.
One notable feature of this saddle is its hard, slick seat, which not only allows for easy mounts and dismounts but also ensures a cooler riding experience compared to saddles with padded seats.
The 4″ horn is positioned above the 9″ swell, allowing riders to rope and pull with ease while providing ample space for movement without any interference from the pommel. The 4″ cantle with rawhide binding and Billy’s hand-tooled waffle border adds a touch of elegance to the saddle’s overall look.
The rounded skirt, made from heavy top grain leather, features the same deep hand-tooled waffle border, adding character to the saddle’s design. Additionally, the large Billy Cook logos and tooled signature on the fenders and cantle leave no doubt that you’re riding an authentic Billy Cook saddle.
Other notable features of this saddle include the 3″ bell rawhide covered stirrups, rope strand cinch, and wrapped post horn. The inclusion of long strings provides ample room for ranch or trail gear, and the rear flank set is also included.
Weighing in at 42lb, this saddle is built to last for generations. When you purchase a Billy Cook saddle, you’re not just buying a saddle; you’re acquiring a piece of history and tradition from a saddle maker that has maintained a consistent manufacturing process for decades.
In conclusion, the Billy Cook Arbuckle Wade saddle, specifically the 2182 model, offers ranchers a high-quality and durable option that can withstand the rigors of ranch work while still maintaining its stylish appearance.
