What do you think about this saddle? (Circle Y)

I'm looking into saddles, and I found this one. What do you think?

You can get something better for the money. High Horse is low-end Circle Y, and honestly Circle Y isn't all that hot anymore.

This is actually a very nice saddle in an unpopular color. Excellent price for it. Teskey's Saddle Shop: Texas Star Ostrich Barrel

Thanks Bubba! I had completely forgotten about Teskey's.

I like the second saddle, just too small.
How about this one?

That was my thoughts as well, Seemed a little pricey for a High horse.

Nice saddle. Didn't even see that when I was going through them last night. I have one in that rigging (cut-out) style, and like it.

Circle Y was a decent brand back in the day, but the quality has gone downhill in recent years.

I love my Billy Cook saddle. Had it for about 10 years now and it's in wonderful condition, never had to replace anything, and the fleece underneath has held up extremely well too. Have you looked at any of them?

I have! I just haven't found one I like.
What about Tex Tan saddles? Are they in the same boat as Circle Y?

From what I've seen Circle Y saddles have maintained their quality and continue with research to make both horse and rider more comfortable. I had a High Horse in the shop and everything was A1 in my books.
