Does anyone recognize what kind of Circle Y this is? I'm trying to find the model but can't. the serial number I was given is 2131 1600089710. I'm going to see it on Wednesday and try it on my horse. It looks like its in really good condition.

I think that serial numbers got too many numbers, but what I can find is that 2131 is/was Arabian style. so that's something.

Look on the Circle Y website- they have a guide to decoding their serial numbers. I'm not a western person, so I can't help you much more than that.

If you post a pic of the serial number (there will be a metal plate under the front part of the skirt and the serial number will also be engraved in the leather by the fender) on Circle Y's Facebook page, they will help you with the number.

Tack Jack

THANK YOU!

I haven't tried this saddle out yet, was going to but didn't have the $ at the time. So hopefully this weekend. We'll see if it fits my short backed boy.

Beyond the Arab tree thing, it looks more like a trail saddle to me. It doesn't appear to have a rigging suited to heavier disciplines....so probably the tree wouldn't be either (by heavier disciplines, I mean roping or ranch work type stuff where there is a lot of pressure and torque put on the tree/rigging).
