Circle Y
Marlene McRae Special Effx Barrel Saddle
Barrel Saddles

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Circle Y
Model: Marlene McRae Special Effx Barrel Saddle
Category: Barrel Saddles

Purchase: I bought this saddle used on Ebay for $900.

Likes: I liked that the saddle did flex with the movement with the horse. It seemed to fit my appendix mare good. The saddle had a very secure seat and kept you in the right position instead of being ahead or behind of the motion.

Dislikes: The seat and the cantle seemed to have started to collapse. The billets were made with a thin leather and then backed with nylon for strength. Me personally I would like to see thicker (or even doubled and stitched) leather billets instead of the nylon.

Quality: The saddle didn't seem as well made as I thought it might have been. As I said above the seat and cantle seemed to have started to collapse.

Summary: Overall I think this saddle costs too much for what it is. On one hand the makers and designers knew what was needed to make a really nice saddle, but choose to go cheap on some things which I think is a real shame.
