    Solid Work Saddle

    I was in the market for a good quality work saddle to avoid using a show saddle for everyday use. This is working great for me. I was nervous about the fit on my horse as I have a horse with a larger left shoulder but it fits well.

    This is my first roughout saddle. I did a bit of research & decided on the Billy Royal for the guaranteed quality and have not been disappointed. It is very comfortable and like riding with chaps on! I would recommend it to anyone wanting a comfortable, everyday saddle that keeps you in place.

    My boyfriend got me this saddle about a year ago as a birthday/ valentines day/ christmas present and I love it! It fits perfectly on my AQHA mare. It is super comfy, broke in easily, and looks great on her. The ONLY reason I gave it 4 stars is because it squeaks so bad it makes me CRAZY. I can't hear my trainer if she is more than 20 feet across the ring trying to teach me. My mare has a very big trot so it's difficult not to squeak. I found the squeaking originated between the top skirt right next to the seat and the stirrup leathers right underneath. Ive gone through 4 or 5 bottles of baby powder over the past year, trying to quell the squeak. After I cleaned the underside with leather therapy wash and then conditioned it about 4 times i finally gave in and just did the top side. (i know, rough out, big nono, but I was desperate). After doing about 2 rounds of wash and metal brushing and then 3 rounds of conditioning with leather therapy the squeak is gone! It's amazing. and it has helped the suppleness vastly! The color wasn't really affected. It's only slightly darker than it originally was (and lets be honest, it's going to get darker from dirt and sweat over time anyway). And my only other slight critique is the stirrups are a smidgen narrow, pushing it on the safety side for my personal preference.

    Billy Royal Pro Work Saddle is great from the first ride!

    I was surprised at how comfortable the Pro Work Saddle was during our first ride. No break-in time required. I have already recommended it to several friends and trainers.

    Is there a reason this saddle cannot be oiled and tanned similar to the Work Saddle II? Both are rough out leather. It seems that oiling this saddle is a no no. Appearance would be much better if it was a little darker. Thanks in advance for your answers. Trainers are recommending this saddle for my 3 yr old Bay Arab Gelding. Just thinking it would look better on him if it was darker from the get go!

    Johnny

    These saddles darken naturally and will turn the color of the Classic II with every day riding. Roughout saddles just need to brushed off with a brush to remove dirt and stains and the underside smooth leather can be oiled and conditioned. The roughout hides do not absorb the oil the same way that tooled or smooth leather does. The shaggy surface will absorb too much oil and weaken the leather. Also the oil will come off on clothing for quite a while as well.

    What size is the gullet

    Taelor.

    Schneider's Customer Service

    What is the difference between this saddle and the Billy Royal Classic work saddle?

    Lesley

    The Classic has a deeper seat and different stirrups. Both saddles are also rigged differently. The Pro Work saddle also offers the Regular or Arab fit.

    Schneider's Customer Service

    Hi, is the only difference between the regular and the arabian in this saddle the skirt size? I have a quarter horse but he has a shorter back so wondering if I get the arabian as long as it has full qh bars...and what is the gullet measurement on both? thanks so much!

    Jess

    They are both on the same tree and will have a full Quarter Horse bar. The only difference is the skirt length.

    Q:  Will this saddle fit my horse?
    A:  Billy Royal saddles have a custom tree that has been modified to fit the majority of breeds, from Arabians to QH’s. All saddles are guaranteed to fit you and your horse or return it at our expense.

    Q:  What kind of tree does a Billy Royal saddle have?
    A:  Billy Royal saddle have wooden trees that are rawhide wrapped best fitting tree. They are custom designed to fit the modern conformations of today’s horses. All of the Billy Royal saddle trees have a lifetime warranty.

    Q:  Will these saddles fit a draft?
    A:  Draft breeds typically need an extra wide gullet (Full QH bar or better). Billy Royal saddles have a wide gullet.

    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:  Where are the saddles made?
    A:  All Billy Royal saddles are made in Mexico.

    Q:  What is ralide?
    A:  Ralide trees are formed from molded polyethylene. Ralide trees are formed in a single unit with no seams or separate pieces that can come loose. Most ralide trees have a 5 year warranty.

    Q:  How short will the stirrups go?
    A:  Typically, if the rider has a 28” inseam, the saddles should fit nicely.

    Q:  Can I order shorter fenders?
    A:  We don’t encourage it since the fenders will not match the saddle and the lead time is around 6 months.

    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.
