Manufacturer: Circle Y
Model: Durango Flex Tree
Category: Trail Saddles
Purchase: I got it on Ebay new for 1150.
Likes: This has outstanding "broken in" feel to the quality leather. The girth can be placed 3/4 or 7/8. It came with a rear girth and breastcollar. It is not too heavy but is not cheaply made or flimsy. the flex tree still has a feeling of strength to it for it's purpose. I was caught out in a torrential rain, this (dark oil finish) came out of that like it never happened....fits well on a mule as well as a FT and a older QH ..pretty versatile for the money.
Dislikes: It would not hold a cow off the horn etc, but was never intended for that.
Quality: Superb soft quality leather, well made and finished with a fine look and feel.
Summary: For a quality recreational trail saddle that would be not so heavy and would be forgiving to the equine back, and kind to the knees of the rider, especially, it is a lovely saddle.
Usefulness Rating: 2.6 out of 5.
