I’m in the market for a used barrel saddle. I don’t have a lot of money to spend on one, I just need something that will last me at least 2 years so I can save money for a better one. I don’t have a saddle right now so I’m literally only riding bareback because the tree on my old saddle broke. I have found 2 Dakota saddles and a couple Circle Y saddles. I have heard good and bad about the Circle Ys. I would be only considering the Dakota, but it has a full skirt and those are not my favorite, and the other is black, which I’m also not a huge fan of. The Circle Y does not have a full skirt and is the color I want. But if there is a considerable difference in quality then I’m not worried about color or skirt. I’ve also found a Circle S that is beautiful, but I don’t know anything about the brand. Any helpful suggestions? They are all about the same price.
