Circle Y Synthetics?!

I am back to shopping for a saddle. I am currently riding in my 15" Bighorn and I freakin LOVE that saddle. Problem is, I no longer fit in it. Its just tooooo small. Its so comfortable and very attractive...but I suppose it should fit!

In my search, I came across a Circle Y synthetic on ebay. Its in my price range, it *IS* a circle Y...It looks to be a comfortable, deep seat. Problem is, I hate synthetic. I was hoping someone could tell me that the Circle Y's are magically better than other synthetics?

Does anyone have one of these? Know someone who has one? Are the comfortable? Do they hold up on the trail?

I am looking for something 17" western, comfortable and durable. I can sell my bighorn tomorrow for $300 so I need the saddle to be less than that.

Circle Y did make a leather/synthetic combo saddle for several years, but stopped because they weren't popular.

I don't know if this is the same type, but the ones I've seen have a leather seat, pommel, and cantle. The only things that are synthetic are the skirt, and the stirrup leathers/stirrups.

They're pretty nice saddles, since they really are mostly leather.

Yup! That's what this one is! I hate having to size up in my saddle but its neccessary unless I never want to take another picture riding again. I tried out a circle Y equitation saddle a few weeks ago but it just wasnt a fit. I might just give this one a try.

I didn't know Circle Y made synthetic. But I guess it's probably synthetic/leather combo. However, I'd be careful about Circle Y under $300 (how it sounds from your post). May be their synthetic were on cheap side, but all Circle Y (used and new) I've seen in local ads and stores are expensive.

They are expensive lil buggers eh?! Id imagine its priced at $250(shipping included) because it is a used synthetic saddle. They don't have a huge market. Especially when you can get a new synthetic for under $200. It is also pretty dirty...looks like its been laying in a barn for a few years. I suppose that's the upside to synthetics. It doesn't really matter how long it long as its not chewed up (and the pictures don't look chewed up, just dirty) it can be cleaned with simple soap and water.

It is a 'partial' synthetic...with the leather pommel and a leather cantle. The rest is synthetic. I was considering doing the buyitnow for $250 but someone already has a bid on it. Maybe I can get it cheaper! LOL

I bought a Circle Y saddle not too long ago for $175, and was amazed to find it was the real deal. I was really lucky, though - I bought it at a horse auction and the previous owner had stepped out for just a moment so he couldn't PO it when it went so cheap.

It was too small for me and didn't fit my horse (the auctioneer said it was an 18" seat, but it was only a 16" seat), so I sold it for over twice what I paid for it two weeks later at the same auction house.
