For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Circle Y
Model: Just-B-Natural Tree Free Trail Saddle
Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: Valley Vet Supply has a demo saddle program where you can try the saddle out for 10 days for $50 plus shipping. What a deal!

Likes: The saddle has a very authentic western look which I was trying to find in a treeless saddle. The pommel & cantle are made of wood & give good stability to the saddle. The double padded seat is super comfee! The fenders have lots of swing forward & back & are perfect for trail riding! The 3 way rigging is nice for adjusting to the position you need. The saddle really did conform to my horse's back & he seemed very happy with it after a long trail ride. NO spots that rubbed. Their was plenty of room for his high withers & his is slightly sway-backed. The saddle did not move. I could easily mount from the ground & when the horse spooked & did a 180, saddle did not budge! YEAH! The horn is mounted firm & solid on the saddle & is perfect for holding onto just in case!

Dislikes: Circle Y does not make the fenders for tall people! I am a 5'10" woman & needed the stirrups to drop at least another 2-4 notches to be comfortable. If you are about 5'6" and under you will probably be ok. Where the jockeys attach into the saddle there is a bump or ridge you can feel right underneath your thigh. I would think after a long day in the saddle my seat would be ok from the padding, but my thigh would be hurting because of how the fenders attach to the saddle.

Quality: Circle Y makes a quality product as usual! Quality leather & craftsmanship. The pommel & cantle are riveted onto the skirt, but the rivets are tucked back so I don't think it would be a problem unless they came out or loose. But they are exposed so they are easy to inspect to make sure they don't come out, which is good!

Summary: I decided to return the saddle. Loved the look, loved the seat, loved the way if fit my horse, but needed a longer fender which I was disappointed in. Circle Y, what were you thinking? Only short people ride horses? I will probably look at the new Freeform western saddles & try it next. Have ridden in a Bob Marshall & liked it way better!
