Ok thanks everyone that has posted so far ,,, the newer ones are getting worse,,, my dad has a really old circle y that is nice. I was asking because I just got a circle y that isnt a brand new model but it isn't a really old model. I say a few years ago it was made.It is super comfortable and it has been used like 3 times by the old owner of it so I still have to break it in a little... ehhh. Lol. It is a show saddle and it has quite a bit of silver on it .... hehehe. I will try to get some pictures of it on my mare (she looks very pretty in silver, haha) to show you all! And thanks for posting
I think the overall quality of Circle Y saddles has gone down in recent years to the point where I do not like them anymore. I LOVE their older models but most of their new stuff is not paying for top quality products anymore, its paying for their name stamped on the leather.
I would totally agree!!! I had a show saddle and it didnt impress me too much. I ended up selling it for a good price because of its name. It isnt a bad saddle by any means but there are others that are better...I really like their headstalls though. But if it fits your horse and you like it then go for it.
