The proven by circle Y reviews (pics)

Has anybody used the proven by circle Y, or have it? I am looking for reviews im really interested in this saddle and would love to hear what you have to say about it the good and bad. Is the 5in cantle comfortable for long rides as well? Funny question but do you feel the croc inlay on your butt when your ridding? I put it in the barrel racing section because it being a barrel saddle, if anyone moves it to tack reviews just let me know. I attached a picture of the model im looking at:

Circle Y has really nice saddles. I would be concerned the croc seat might be slippery? But ive never ridden in one. I have a 5" cantle saddle and its soooooooo comfortable.

This is the saddle i have, and i love it. Its amazing. So comfortable...its like sitting on a cloud. Really holds you in the saddle. Its gorgeous! And fits my horse like a dream. I couldnt be happier. And it was cheaper then the Circle Ys i had been looking at.

The high cantle offers excellent pelvic support. I don't think the croc imprint would bother your butt. Circly Y thinks things out pretty carefully.

Ohhh thats a beautiful saddle! This one is cheaper than the ones I was looking at too, I was looking closer to $1500 to spend. I was concerned about the croc seat too but since its just a little im hoping it will be ok (im really hoping someone has the saddle and can tell me!)

Im really hoping it doesnt. I thought of that also, with paying anywhere from $1000-$1500 dollars for the saddle (depending on what I want) im hoping they would come up with an idea for it to be comfortable haha

One other question, see how the seat is sunken in, will that affect how it rides vs. one that isnt?

Yes. The deeper seat is going to hold you in the saddle better. I find it helps to sit back on your jean pockets more, keeping your balance which in important around the barrels.

But does it make for long trail rides with a seat like that?

5" Tall Cantle's are becoming more popular in Trail Saddles also, people are saying they support the back better.

Nice looking Saddle
