Purchase: I bought this saddle for some open shows. I bought it new at a tack store for $1200! This was a great price considering they're $2025 on the Circle Y website. To be honest I didn't do a whole lot of tack searching before I bought this.
Likes: I just love this saddle. It's sooo comfortable and the tooling is beautiful. The silver is engraved beautifully as well.I did plan on just using this for open shows, but I used it for a QH show as well and personally I think it's just as high quality as those expensive saddles. I have been riding in this every day and showing in it for the past 3 years and there is barely any wear. A little color from the black chaps I show in and a little wear on the inside of the stirrups.
Dislikes: Hmm...the only trouble I've had with this saddle is the fenders aren't turned at all and even though it's been two years I have yet to use the broom trick! It's a touch narrow on my wide QH but with the right pad it fits. Also, which is just my personal opinion, I like larger skirts. That's just my preference though.
Quality: Where to start...The leather is tooled beautifully and the silver is engraved beautifully as well. The silver has yet to tarnish or do anything funky. It's crafted just perfectly. Amazing quality for a rather inexpensive saddle!
Summary: If you are on a budget, buy this saddle! You just can't compromise on quality and this is quality. Beautiful saddle, I highly recommend it (:
