Category: Jumping Saddles
Purchase: I came across this saddle in my local Dover tack shop in Delaware. I was instantly impressed by how comfortable this saddle felt and how secure I felt sitting in it. Since I was looking for a new saddle for my larger horse, I decided to buy it. It cost $700 and came with a new matching bridle.
Likes: I love how durable and comfortable it is. It broke in very fast, and has held up to all of the wear and tear I've put it through. The knee blocks and thigh blocks keep me secure over fences, but I am able to use it on the flat as well. Of all of the saddles I've ever ridden in (and that has been a LOT of saddles) I have to say the only saddle I liked riding in more then my Circuit is a brand new Devoucoux eventing saddle that my trainer owned. But considering any Devoucoux costs a min. of $2,500 + I think I'll stick with my Circuit until I win the lottery:)
Dislikes: I wish the leather was just a little bit softer, however it is still extremely comfortable to ride in.
Quality: I've had this saddle for two years now, and it is in excellent shape. The stitching is nice and tight, and the leather has held up well. I would say this is a high quality unit.
Summary: This is an excellent saddle for an unbeatable price. Many people have told me how much they like my saddle, and it is often mistaken for much more expensive saddles. I would recommend this saddle to anyone.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
