 So now that they have been around for a while, what are your thoughts?  I am wondering if the people who loved them when they first came out are still loving them?  I also wonder how they are holding up.  I noticed the price has come down from a little over $2,000 to around $1,600.

I got mine as a trophy saddle a couple of years ago (2012) and I absolutly love the way it fits my horses (they are never sore and never have dry spots) and the way it feels for me as a rider; however I do not think they are made the best.  I sent my fenders in this winter because the material they use on the back was starting to fray from my D-rings.  Circle Y was very giving in fixing them for free....its just the saddle has only been used for three seasons and its not holding up like my Double J or Reinsman.

I liked it but it made my wide mare super sore. You could obviously see the change in her back shape. So I ended up going back to my Tammy Fisher which I dont love sitting in but it fits my mare really well. Saddle fitting can sometimes be a huge pain in the checkbook.

I liked mine, but it was crooked... I did not have it long. :-/

I do think they have since fixed the problem.  

ETA: However after with dealing with Circle Y AND dealer customer service (or lack thereof), I will never buy a new Circle Y again. Mine also was not made the best (in general). It was okay, but nothing like my Crown C in quality.

I had one … fit my horse nice, he ran nice in it .. BUT my back hurt so badly! I was so sore from one run in it, I was standing but had to bend over … stooped and was afraid to sit down for fear I wouldn't be able to get up. Have a Sibley now … it's ok, loved it at first, but I think its making my horse sore .. probably going to back to a Tammy … we were both happy then. (I sold it to buy the JBN because I liked the way it looked vs. the TF and I needed a smaller seat! Stupid). When I purchased it, they sent me the wrong size and the gal at Circle Y was kinda snippy with me (the numbers said it was a 14.5 and it measured a 15.5) she accused me of not knowing how to measure the seat size. But that's a whole different story.

 It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who had a poor customer service experience.

I liked it......my horse did not seem sore, but he quit firing into his barrels, and needless to say, hit quite a few.  Changed to a Tammy and have only hit 1 all year.  I like the Tammy much better, once it's broke in.  The JBN rode very nice from the get go.

I bought one that was suppose to be a demo used a handful of times..It was misrepresented and I sent it back the next day. It was crooked and as soon as I sat in it I had one leg going forward and the other going back. You could see by the way it was wearing they were running in it like that. It was very cheaply made. They are priced double of what they should go for. JMO

 I love mine! It's held up well, but I don't ride it everyday.  I ride bareback quite a bit.  I've had it for 2 years.  I might  be interested in selling due to losing 40 lbs and needing a size smaller.  Mine is 15.5

I also had poor customer service from them.

  My sister has one and I've ridden in it quite a bit. We got it 2nd hand, but it was nearly brand new. I find it very comfy and pleasant to ride in. It's the only thing we could find to fit her gelding. She likes it for the most part but doesn't like that the fenders are kinda forward hung. We both prefer having our feet right underneath us.

Pros..they fit a horse nice and are comfortable to trail ride in! Negatives... Cheaply made and hated it to barrel race in! They don't hold resale well either! To each his own though!

Oh WOW!!! So many negative responses...I absolutely LOVE mine!!! I would not Ride in anything else!!!! I have TWO of them. i bought my first one new, and my second one i bought used...I ride a LOT, they have BOTH held up very well. Both my saddles are the Wide version, and have fit EVERYTHING i have put them on. I have not had them make anything Sore either. When i run Barrels in them i have more Balance than ANY other Saddle that i have EVER ridden in, and i have owned a LOT of them. just to name a few,, martha josey, bob marshal, deb sibley, martins, billy cook, even a few off brands, trying anything i thought would work..
