“Simply the most comfortable saddle for both your horse and you! The shape of the seat lined with memory foam will keep you balanced and comfy. The horn is designed to lock you in as you turn. The flex in the shoulder area of your horse helps him have a more fluid reach because he’s not being pinched.” – Kelly Kaminski

Julie Goodnight | Trail and Arena Performance
The PEAK Performance™ saddle line is designed and ridden by Julie Goodnight. Founding her training business in 1985, Julie’s reputation as a horse trainer grew far and wide. In 2008, she began producing Horse Master with Julie Goodnight, a popular how-to horse training series that has aired weekly on RFD-TV for more than a decade, with 260 episodes.

Drawing from her varied background in English and Western riding and her strong upbringing in classical riding, Goodnight recognizes that regardless of discipline, a balanced position for the rider and fit for the horse are fundamental. Goodnight’s saddles provide a correct seat, narrow twist, close contact feel, and absolute comfort for both horse and rider to make them the perfect multi-use performance saddles. Equally suitable for the arena, show ring, or on the trail, the Peak Performance™ saddles are great for trail riding, reining, cow work, Western Dressage and Ranch riding.

“The Flex2® tree allows for plenty of rider support and weight distribution. I am close to the horse in just the right spot on his back for a balanced  ride and good control. These are high quality saddles at a great price.” – Julie Goodnight

Clay Tray | Team Roper

In 20 trips to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, the cowboy from Billings, Montana., has won three world championships, broken several earnings and arena records, and was the ERA Champion.

The team roper Clay rides has a narrow seat to keep you centered and balanced with specific attention given to the horn and cantle height so it's best suited for ropers. It has a lifetime tree warranty because the tree is reinforced with Kevlar® which is 43% lighter than fiberglass and five times stronger than steel.

“To become the PRCA World Champion as a header, you need two things:
• Your saddle to fit your horse exactly
• Make sure your saddle will allow you and your horse to perform at the maximum level

Circle Y is determined to provide the best saddles for fit, function, and quality all the time.” – Clay Tryan

"In my training program at No Where But UP Performance Horses, we want a horse that can stop a cow, maneuver through the trail, and be free moving in ranch riding. This saddle allows horses to do that comfortably. And it sure sits you back where you need to be." - Cody Crow


Tammy Fischer | Barrel Racer
Tammy is dedicated to creating exceptional barrel horses and guiding each horse to reach their full potential. Tammy remains competitive on every level, including winning at the National Finals Rodeo and prestigious Calgary Stampede to the AQHA World and BFA World Championships.

She is a long-time fan of treeless saddles and came to Circle Y to design her signature saddle line. Circle Y considered the unique riding styles of Fischer when designing her signature saddle. Fischer’s saddle suits the rider that likes a deep, secure seat with an upright swell and 5” cantle. The treeless design of her saddle keeps the rider in close contact with the horse and allows unrestricted movement.

Fleece-lined neoprene skirts distribute weight, absorb shock, and are flexible, bending with the horse in the turns. Forward hung stirrup leathers keep your feet from getting behind you and provide the rider flexibility in the stirrups.

“The close contact of my saddle lets the horse and rider connect in a way that traditional saddles can’t”, said Tammy Fischer.

Kenda Lenseigne | Cowboy Mounted Shooter
Kenda has spent her life on the back of a horse. She’s developed a reputation as an accomplished trainer of horses and people, won almost everything there is to win in the competitive arena and cultivated a thriving business dedicated to introducing others to her sport. Her proudest accomplishment remains winning the title of Overall World Champion, becoming the first woman to best her male competitors.

Lenseigne designed the shooting saddles from the tree out to provide the horse freedom of movement and keep the rider in a balanced position. The Circle Y Flex2® tree conforms to the horse and allows for freedom of movement. The saddle’s lightweight and shock-absorbing skirt further helps horses perform at their best. A roughout seat jockey and fender, and a suede seat, help hold the rider’s position. The adjustable stirrup leather position strap determines the amount of leg swing the rider prefers. The swell of the saddle is low, and the forward tilted horn allows for maximum clearance for the two guns and holsters which riders carry.

“Circle Y has listened to the needs of our shooting competitors and has designed a saddle with these features. As the saying goes, the right tool for the job, this saddle will definitely help many riders improve their skills.” - Kenda Lenseigne

Sarah Rose Waguespack | Barrel Racer
Sarah is a professional barrel racer, two-time NFR qualifier, WPRA Rookie of the year, RFDTV American Champion, and NBHA World Champion. In 2014, Sarah rodeoed for the first time and earned Rookie of the Year honors. Sarah’s current focus is teaching clinics across the U.S. while competing and training her own barrel horses.

Sarah designed her barrel saddles with the Flex2® tree for comfort and freedom for the horse in a lightweight saddle. A balanced seat helps you ride effectively, and a close contact skirt and low profile fit keep you close to the horse. The Grip-Rite skirt liner does not pack down or pick up debris. The Rider Locking stirrup leather buckle prevents the sleeve from sliding off and losing a stirrup, a great safety feature.

“I love this saddle! I love how lightweight, comfortable, how well they fit all the different size horses I ride, and how confident they help me feel on my horses.I feel like I”m sitting around and with my horse and not on top of my horse, which means better riding.” -Sarah Rose Waguespack

Keyla Costa | Barrel Racer
Keyla started riding and training at just three years old on a ranch in the city of Guzolandia, Sp, alongside her siblings. Her parents were always there to offer encouragement along the way. She started competing shortly after, at just five years old, where she saw many victories and defeats. This led her to pursue her dream of competing in the PRCA and moving to the United States with her husband, Marcos Costa, a tie-down roper.

"I never imagined that God would put me here to be able to accomplish my dreams and build my family." - Keyla Costa

Circle Y will release Keyla's barrel saddle in late 2023.
