Anyone willing to help me decode a Circle Y serial number?

I'm trying to get this saddle's info. I emailed Circle Y a couple weeks ago and didn't receive a response. I tried using their number decoder,but I ended up with a saddle that I know doesn't match this one. So anyone willing to help me out? TIA :-)

Circle Y Saddles - Western Saddles, Trail Riding Saddles, Barrel Sadles, Roping Saddles

Try contacting them on Facebook - it's updated fairly regularly.

User TackJack is awesome at decoding this sort of thing. I would assume that #229 would be the model number, 51 would refer to the saddle seat size (15 inch?), and 0372 would be the month and year (March 1972)?

I failed on this one haha...sorry!

I think nickers might be on to something though!

their 70's and 80's saddles are all over the place

I have decoded their serial numbers using the guide on the website with little difficulty. Once you look it over a few times it's pretty straightforward.

Since it's easy for you if you end up coming up with answers that would be great. I've not found ease in decoding it from their chart. :wink:

Are you sure the last digits are 3720? It almost looks like 8720 to me...though it may just be the picture.

The trick is making sure you use the correct year for your saddle. If you aren't using the right one then it can naturally be a bit tricky :P I've only used it once, but according to folks that I have asked I did it correctly. If I get a chance in the next couple of days I'll take a look at it, but I can't make any promises that what I come up with will be correct!

Yea...I have no idea what year it is unfortunately. That would be helpful. Well thanks and good luck if you get around to it...
