I would run from that saddle. Seems like somewhere I read the "C" in Circle C stands for _rap.

I got a nice Circle Y endurance for 500. After paying 1700. Brand new for my Circle Y trail saddle. This is Circle "C", really not sure about them, but I am not a fan. JMO.

My point with mentioning the Circle Y cutting saddle I found was that you can find really nice, name brand used saddles for almost as cheap as that Circle C (that doesn't look quality at all).

Thanks! How would you compare this to an abetta synthetic western saddle (what I have now)?

I'd say the Abetta is better quality, to be honest.

Depends on what you want it for I guess. Personally, I wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole, but then if all you have is 250 bucks you may not have many options. It doesn’t look very well made to me, kinda looks like a mudguard (shiny on top, filthy underneath); for example look under the fork, I wouldn’t touch a saddle with fork covers like that, if it isn’t done properly there I would take it for granted that corners have been cut elsewhere.

Thanks! I'll stick with my Abetta for now then.

It's an economy saddle but I was glad to see the Ralide tree. If you offered $235 I don't think you'd go wrong if it fits you and the horse.

So, there's been a development with this saddle. Turns out it's actually a "James Cox Diamond 'C' Saddle" with the Arabian tree. The number on it is 4015. Does this change anything? If it helps, I only ride for 30-45 minutes at a time 1-3 times per week and it's close enough that I should be able to arrange trying it on my horse first.
