About Legendary Saddlery Circle Y
In 1960, in the small town of Yoakum in the southeast part of Texas, a man named Leland Tucker founded Circle Y saddlery. With an insistence on high quality and fine craftsmanship, he steadily built one of the most respected saddle brands in the world.
Circle Y has gained a reputation for great-looking tack and saddles of superior quality. The company is always looking to improve its products, having introduced unique and innovative features to their saddles such as:
- Their patented Flex-Lite saddle tree. Circle Y’s Flex-Lite tree is lightweight and flexible, allowing it to fit a range of horses as though it was custom-made.
- Softee seat jockeys and stirrup fenders. Softee leather gives a “ready to ride feel” to a saddle, while also minimizing knee and ankle strain.
Circle Y saddles are all still made in Yoakum, TX, just as they were back in 1960. They are crafted by a team of expert saddle makers who contribute decades of knowledge and skill to each saddle made.
