Purchase: I purchased this saddle used in 2010, it was manufactured in 1998. I paid $525 for this saddle with breast collar, plus shipping on eBay.
Likes: Although it is an older saddle it is still in fantastic shape, a testament to Circle Y quality and longevity! You would think that being a 12 year old saddle, the leather would be scratched or starting to crack...Not this saddle! The seat is suede and is very comfortable. I can ride for hours and never get sore. The leather is very soft, has a flower and vine type of pattern and still looks brand new. This saddle also came with a black leather breast collar that has a gorgeous silver center that matches the saddle perfectly. The entire set is gorgeous.
Dislikes: The saddle is a little heavy, about 35 lbs. I may buy a cheaper lightweight saddle for super long trail rides. Also, I did notice some rust starting to develop on the steal parts where you clip the breast collar and tighten the cinch.
Quality: My Park and Trail is a semi-quarter horse bar (6 3/4) and 16" seat. It can be used for trail riding or for show as it came with lots of silver; on the horn, on the back of the seat (plate) and 4 silver plates on the skirts on the back of the saddle and silver conchos. It has a beautiful suede seat that is actually very easy to clean.
Summary: I LOVE this saddle! I actually considered selling it to get a brown saddle instead, but I am having a hard time selling this one because it so nice, and it fits me and my horse so well!! I would recommend Circle Y to anyone looking for a saddle- they are worth every penny and will last you years and years!!
