My horse was four when I bought the Circle Y. Since then he has gained two more inches in height and about 350 pounds (or more) but it has been NINE years. It fit him perfectly for about six years and I have just been slow to replace it.

Right now I am looking at a Circle Y with a gaited tree.

The only saddle that I have ever sold that I did not late go darn it would have fit the new horse was the draft saddle - I have Arabs and Arab crosses.

I can only hope the new saddle is as good as the old one!

Good luck

I have a circle y reining saddle. Its a 16 and too big for me as it has alot of room to move around in. I still like it though. I'm in the process of getting a Fallis custom saddle . My first custom and I am excited. This one will fit. The stirups are 4 inches in front of the cinch and it puts you into a really good balanced position. It also doesnt' have all that bulky rigging under your legs like most western saddles have.

I had a Circle Y saddle, sold it and regretted it ever since, I'm working towards getting another one.

Do you mean behind the cinch? It seems in front of the cinch would put you in a chair seat.

No, in front of the cinch. It really doesn't put you in a chair position. Reining saddles are up further also. Your in a more balanced position as if you were riding bareback. Look up Fallis saddlery.com and there the web site explains how the saddle is made and why. It doesn't have all that rigging underneath so you have a closer contact also.

Thanks. I missed where you stated it was a reining saddle.

I looked that the Fallis saddles and they looked a lot like regular saddles to me. I haven't ridden in saddles that had the stirrups way back behind the cinch. Maybe a lot of them do? Anybody have any insight here?

There actually in front of the cinch. The difference is that having the stirups in front of the cinch makes it so much easier to use your legs on the horses shoulders when turning.(and there is no bulk) My old circle y has so much bulk that I can't bring my legs up further to ask for a turn lets say. OH,of course you can turn in any saddle because everyone does but I'm just saying that your in a more balanced position.
Anyother saddle maker that has the same idea and they both know each other is Boz. The Boz saddle is made the same as the Fallis only the Fallis is leather and the Boz saddles are fleece. They are cheaper because of the materials used but they are the same with the stirups in front of the cinch. If you go on the Boz web site he has a video that explains why they are built that way. You can do all the different manuvers like reining , trail riding, ect. I just feel more secure. I'm getting mine in may and I can't wait...

If your goal with the Fallis is to avoid the bulk of the rigging and get your leg forward for better turns, I'm sure its great. After reading why they put the stirrups so far foward on their website, I'd be VERY wary about buying them. They say the goal is to put the rider's weight up near the shoulder where it is easier for the horse to carry. Putting the stirrups forward only does that if MOST of the rider's weight is carried in the stirrups. So the rider must stand to achieve that goal. If you stand in the stirrups and it puts most of your weight (and the pressure that that weight causes) up onto your horse's shoulder, it unbalances the saddle and will likely result in a sore horse. It does not make any sense to me based on their description. Maybe I'm missing something....
