And then theres the stiff, old, dead wintec one I have that Mom and I used to break in colts and weeellll....let's just say it isn't as good as it used to be :)
Do you know which model the circle y is? I'm looking at a few and wondering which ones are the best.

My favorite saddle is the one I have right now, a Black Country Ricochet close contact.

My least favorite is any Stubben. Every single one I have sat in feels like I am sitting on a 2x4. I also hate that they are "U" shaped, doesn't fit my flat backed TB at all.

I LOVE my Martha Josey barrel saddle by Circle Y, it is soo comfy and very nice to look at. I like crates saddles to. My least favorite is the synthetic saddles.

quarter horses.....simply the best

I like my Betta endurance saddle. The plus is the weight, while a good leather saddle runs up to 40 pounds mine is in the 15 pound range. If you spent alot of time in the saddle the horse appreciates the weight break. I find it comfortable, I can ride a buck or a jump with it. It seems to stand up fine, I have about 4000 miles on it without undo wear but the BEST PART is the tree can be removed from it with little effort, the tree can be custom fitted to the horse, built up or cut down until the tree mirrors the horses back and then reassembled with only a screw driver to make a custom fit saddle.
