The Circle Y Walnut Grove trail riding saddle is a trail saddle with a definite cowboy look to it. It has a slick fork, rounded skirt, beautiful floral tooling with border detailing, and iron conchos featuring a bronc riding cowboy. Even though it has a “cowboy” look, it’s a trail riding saddle through and through with Circle Y’s patented Flex2 saddle tree (more on this below), padded seat, Softee leather on the seat jockeys and stirrup fenders, and more.

The Circle Y Patented Flex2 Saddle Tree and the Walnut Grove
The Circle Y Walnut Grove trail saddle uses Circle Y’s patented Flex2 saddle tree. The Flex2 tree is an innovative design featuring increased comfort for both horse and rider.
The Flex2 has a “dual bar” saddle tree with a rigid, high density bar and a flexible, low density bar.
- The high density bar is rigid and supports the rider’s weight.
- The low density bar is flexible, and “gives” up front by the horse’s shoulder and at the back of the tree also. This allows for greater comfort and freedom of movement for the horse.
Even though the Flex2 has some flexibility to it, it does not over flex and supports riders of all weights. It is a lightweight saddle tree that is covered in DuraHide for extra strength and stability in temperature extremes.
For a look at the Flex2, you can see the Circle Y video below featuring Julie Goodnight.
