“Quality, Craftsmanship, Style… Demand the best – I do! I’ll only ride in a Circle Y because of the way the saddles fit our horses and help riders from beginner to advanced keep a correct seat.” – Martha Josey

She is am 11-Time NFR Qualifier Barrel Racer, NFR World Champion 1980, WPRA and NBHA Champion, Olympic Gold Medalist Barrel Racer, and Clinician.

Every Josey Ultimate is built with these key features:
Horn: 4” forward slanted horn helps to push down into your turn and pull up coming out of your turn
Center Pocket Seat: for centering and balance keeps the rider in stride with the horse
Pay Window Swells: keeps the rider in a correct position to hold the horn and keeps the horn available
Cantle: keeps you from getting behind the horse’s stride. The seat is dished so you sit in the seat and not on it, allowing you to stay in stride with the horse
Free Swing, Forward Hung Stirrup Leathers: keeps the feet forward preventing the rider from being thrown forward and off balance
Stirrups: 3” wide aluminum rubber grip stirrups for comfort and balance
Rigging: rawhide slots or 3-Way Adjustable
