Thoughts on this particular Circle Y Saddle, please.
 
Hiya,

I am contemplating buying this saddle for my horse. I had a fitter out and it fit both my horse and I very nicely.

Has anyone used this saddle, and if so, what do you think of it?

Thanks!

Dog Bone Trail: Circle Y

I haven't used one but I do like the looks of it. Plus, circle Y is a good brand.

Thanks! :)
She is asking 750 for it, but is willing to negotiate.
She is also going to get me a Skito pad. :)

That is a very nice looking saddle & sounds like it is a good deal, too!

Definately a good deal.

One of the girls on my equestrian team rides in that same saddle. It is a fantastic saddle to have....

Thanks for the comments! I appreciate it.

I know I read something somewhere a long time ago saying that flex tree saddles weren't the greatest, but I can't remember where.

The fitter is coming back out again Wed to put it on him again. :)
She wants to be certain it fits perfectly.

So, did you buy it?

spookychick13 05-08-2011 03:28 PM

Almost, she is still letting me try it. :) I rode in it Wednesday, and so far so good for me and my horse.
The fitter is out of town but when she returns we will finalize the deal.

:D

Resurrecting this thread.
A friend of mine was doing research on trail saddles and was saying flex trees are bad news.

I bought the saddle and have been using it for years now, and my horse seems fine...but now I'm paranoid.
What's so bad about flex trees?

Nothing! I have a flex tree and it does just fine. Not every saddle will fit every horse, sometimes you gotta shop around for the right fit.
