Sorry I didn't get to this thread earlier, as I just joined.
I just got my horse for Christmas, and immediately I looked at the Circuit Saddles. I found the Circuit Elite in Dover, and bought it.
It was SO much different than the picture/description from Dover. It also put me in a weird position
This is what it looked like:
The leather was very plasticy, and overall I found the quality very poor. It also fit my horse very oddly.
I would look at some used Pessoas (That's what I have now). They are high quality, and you can find some great deals on used ones.
If you do decide to get a Circuit, Dover is very kind with their return policy. I had ridden in the Circuit once, it had a little mark, and they returned it for a full refund. I really suggest a Pessoa, I love mine.
I hope that helped you at least somewhat. =]
