What kind of tree do you need to fit your horse? If this is for your new young one, I would wait until closer to riding her - and then you will probably have to change again as she matures/grows in order to keep her in a saddle that fits properly.

I love my Circle G. Garrouette's are a much smaller company then the big Circle y, everyone assumes because of all the other crap brands that start with a circle that Garrouette's are crap too. But they are a very well made saddle, had never heard of them until I started looking for another roper. K&K by Calgary was the one that suggested a Circle G. (k&K carries only good quality saddles, and they know their stuff) I ended up buying a Billy Cook back then, as that was what ended up fitting what I needed. But last year I got a hold of a wonderful Garrouette barrel saddle. I love the saddle so much, it is still in the to be nursery for baby! I cannot throw it out into the shop.

They fit decently wide, not as wide as a Billy Cook, but a touch wider then my Rocking R reiner and way more then my Tex Tan roper. My bf has a wide Circle Y roper that I would compare it to in width, and that saddle he uses on his big tank of a horse.

Honestly, you won't go wrong buying a Circle G. They are great saddles made way better then any new Circle Y, Billy Cook or TexTan coming off the assembly line today. The Circle G/Garrouette brand still makes their saddles with good quality leather, and handmade. I cannot stand how cheap a new Circle Y feels. About the year 1997 is the newest I would ever buy a Circle Y.

I always buy a saddle with resale in mind. There are popular brands that sell well and you get a good return on your money.

I love Circle Y. Mostly because the brand fits my horse. I'm on my 2nd Proven Barrel saddle, horse grew up and out. It's also got a very well balanced seat
