Manufacturer: Circle Y
Model: Economy Barrel Saddle
Category: Barrel Saddles
Purchase: Purchased for $600 on sale at local tack shop. I've ridden in Circle Y saddles before and like the quality.
Likes: This is a great saddle! Even though it's labeled as a barrel saddle, we use it for showing 4H and trail riding. The roughout seat and fenders give the rider great grip. I had trouble finding a Western saddle to fit my narrow, high-withered mare and this saddle fits her very well. It's an attractive looking saddle too with nice tooling on the skirt. weighs about 25 lbs. It's an excellent value for the price.
Dislikes: The roughout leather does pick up the color of your chaps, (especially if you prefer black!)
Quality: It's very well made for a lesser priced Circle Y. Has the same ameneties as more expensive saddles, latigo holder, cinch holder, very nice leather tooling. Nice deep, comfortable seat and a narrower twist. Plus it's the only saddle we found that the fenders accomodate my daughter's long legs and my shorter ones. After over 7 months of near daily use, we're very happy with this saddle.
Summary: This is an excellent saddle for the money and for the brand. If my daughter takes this saddle with her to college, I would not hesitate to purchase another for myself.
Usefulness Rating: 2.2 out of 5.
