For Sale on eBay
Manufacturer: Circle Y
Category: Roping Saddles
Purchase: I bought this used at auction for $400.
Likes: The Circle Y Roper is a nice saddle. The horn is more built up, and it has a nice deep seat. A nice change from my old flat reining saddle. It's a nice sit. The tooling is nice and simple around the border, I don't like a saddle to look to busy.
Dislikes: It's a bit heavy. I'm not sure how old it is, the seller said 'a few years.' I hope that he was telling a lie because if it's only a few years old, it doesn't wear well. I assume it's a lot older because Circle Y are usually good saddles.
Quality: So let's assume the seller lied to me and it's 10 years old, lol. The leather is still in great shape, the suede is wearing off though. I only had to replace the backstraps.
Summary: I think I got a pretty good deal on such a nice saddle. My horse seems to enjoy it and I do too. I wasn't looking for a roping saddle but decided to buy it anyway. I've always wanted to rope and now I have an excuse to try it.
