    Nice quality saddle


    I have a Billy Royal Comfort Classic II saddle which I adore. It fits my horse well in the wither and shoulder area, but unfortunately is too long for him (he wears a size 72 blanket). I hoped this shorter round skirt would work since it is also a Billy Royal on the same width tree. While the length of the saddle was fine the skirt doesn't have the flare at the back which he needs. It did seem to fit him pretty much the same in the shoulders and wither area. The saddle is a very dark, almost black, shade of brown with beautiful smooth leather. Much shinier than it appears in the picture. Almost too nice to use as a work saddle. While this saddle didn't work for my horse I thought this information might be useful to someone else looking for a saddle.




    Looked to be reasonably well made


    Saddle fit is always a long shot with a production saddle. This one was billed as for an arab and it fit in the shoulders but was too long in the back for my small arab. I would have had the stirrups modified so they were twisted.

    Awesome Saddle


    If any saddle maker could resolve this fender issue life would be awesome. Having the stirrups all the way up reduces the way the fenders function as with every western saddle on the market I have 10 different ones but yours is the best for training and comfort and fits all me horses that's a bonus!

    Outstanding fit and function!


    I love this saddle. It has all the rings for training aids and is very comfortable for horse and rider, PLUS it looks so nice! I work multiple breeds/conformations and it fits very well, plus it is comfortable from the first ride. My only complaint is the stirrup's wide fender prevents them from shortening enough for my petite amateur clients, but that is something a local repair shop can fix.

    Awesome ride!


    Full quarter horse bars fit and allow plenty of shoulder movement. Narrow seat keeps me in the saddle and not pitching forward as in other saddles. Comfortable seat! My trainer said this is one of the most comfortable saddles she has ever ridden in!

    Would this be a good choice for barrel racing and poles? I don't know much about western saddles. Thank you


    These would not be suitable for contesting classes as they lack the support in both the front and the back of the seat. We do have a barrel saddle newly available to our line that can be viewed here: https://www.sstack.com/Western_Saddles_Work/Western-Oak-Barrel-Saddle/


    Does the tree in this saddle have a lot of rock to it? or more for straight backed horses? thank you!


    Hi! I'm not sure I fully understand your question, but I'll do my best to answer. It is full bars, so it has a 7" gullet and is designed for those breeds with shorter backs, Arabs, Morgans, POAs. If you have any additional questions please feel free to contact Customer Service team.


    How long is the warranty for the saddle tree?


    Billy Royal saddles have a lifetime warranty on the tree

    I have a shorter backed Paint mare, would this saddle be a good option because of the rounded skirt? Also, how would I tell if semi-quarter horse bar are a better as opposed to full bars?


    This saddle is very short at 25 ½" long and the full Quarter Horse bars will fit the majority of horses.

    Q:  Does the Billy Royal saddle have a full bar?
    A:  Yes, the bars in the Billy Royal saddles are considered full and will fit Quarter Horses, Arabians, Appaloosas, Paints and POA’s.

    Q:  Where are the trees for Billy Royal saddles made?
    A:  The trees were designed by Schneider’s and are made in Mexico.

    Q:  Where do I measure for the gullet to see if it fits my horse?
    A:  The gullet is measured where the pommel meets the skirt. The gullet measurement is taken on the outside edges going across that area.

    Q:  Does the gullet width have anything to do with the bars?
    A:  No.

    Q:  What are saddle bars?
    A:  The bars are the actual angles of each of the long internal pieces of the tree that go along the horses back. The function of the bar is to distribute the weight of the saddle evenly across the back of the horse.

    Q:  What kind of silver is on the show saddles?
    A:  The silver on all show saddles is sterling silver plate and all silver is hand engraved.

    Q:  What is the difference between the 3 work saddles?
    A:  The Classic Work saddle is a basic work saddle that has all the bells and whistles of the Billy Royal brand. This is our #1 seller. The Comfort Classic work saddle had oiled leather and feels broke in right away. The Pro Work saddle has finished, fully lined fenders and seat jockey to provide greater durability and comfort for you and your horse. It has double bound/layered cantle.

    Q:  How do I clean roughout saddles?
    A:  Roughout saddles are maintenance free. If the saddle is dusty or muddy, simply take a brush to remove the dust and mud.

    Q:  How do I take care of the silver?
    A:  Sterling Silver plate requires the same cleaning as Sterling Silver. We recommend Haggerty’s Silver product or Goddard Silver products.

    Q:  My silver has turned yellow. Is it defective?
    A:  No. There is a thin coating of lacquer applied to the silver trim to keep the saddle free of tarnishing agents. As it ages, it needs to be removed. It will take a little elbow grease with Haggerty’s or Goddard’s silver products, but will clean up beautifully and maintain a bright shine.

    Q:  What is the difference between extended purchase and a lease?
    A:  A lease can be taken for a term of either 1 or 2 years and can be purchased at the end of the term or returned to us. Extended purchases allow you to take payments for a term of up to 3 years in which you own the saddle at the end of the term.

    Q:  What are the interest rates of the extended purchase terms?
    A:  1 year is at 12.9%, 2 years is at 13.9% and the full 3 years is at 14.9%

    Q:  What saddles can be financed?
    A:  Any saddle or therapy product over 500.00 can be financed.

    Silver Care
    Your silver should be wiped down after each use and polished on a regular basis to keep its beautiful high gloss shine. It is important to wipe down any silver, such as Romel reins, that come in direct contact with the horse’s body, to eliminate the buildup of dirt and sweat. We highly recommend Schneider’s Silver sleeves to be used between use. The Silver Sleeves are infused with an anti-tarnishing agent and are simply wrapped around the silver pieces. Any brand of silver polish or spray can be used for routine cleaning.
