Purchase: I bought this saddle on line at Horse Saddle Shop, and paid $1700. for it.
Likes: It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL, golden herman leather, with lots of really really nice high quality silver, tooled nicely and it sits like a dream. I got the Florida saddle because it has a 4 inch cantle, is lightweight which makes it easier for short me to get it on my horse, and because of the price. It is extremely comfortable and secure. It is beautiful and of high quality. The silver is lovely and it all matches, it had more silver than I thought from the pictures, and it is very well made.
Dislikes: It definitely was not broken in! the stirrups are not pre-turned, so it was a bit difficult to get broken in, the leather is a bit thick, which is good after it is broken in, but makes it hard to soften up and not darken the leather. Really it is not something to complain about, as it is a NEW saddle.
Quality: All of the silver is carefully attached and fits smoothly onto the leather, the tooling is uniform in depth and pattern, the fleece is even and the saddle is straight along the tree. The seat is comfortable, I had to buy a 16 inch although I wanted a 15 1/2, but it is completely comfortable for me, 5'4" and 105 pounds. I have shown in it at a HUGE Class A arabian show and fit right in with the best of them,, maybe not as much silver but the saddle looked just as good.
Summary: I would suggest to anyone to buy a Circle Y premium saddle, the one I bought is best for short backed horses, would probably not be enough skirting for a large horse or a stock horse, but perfect for my 15.1 hand arabian.
