Circle Y Saddles, Inc., America’s Leading Saddle Brand, celebrates 60 years of saddle making in 2020. We began manufacturing in the small town of Yoakum, Texas, in 1960. With a vision to build the finest saddle possible, founder Leland Tucker created Circle Y from the ground up. The company continued to be family operated until 2000. In 2003 under the new ownership of Steve Tucker, saddle maker, rider, and founder of Tucker Trail Saddles, Circle Y progressed to be the world’s leader in product design, innovation, and quality. We are proud to sponsor some of the biggest names in the western world – take a moment to meet our Team of Champions.

We’ve continued to build our reputation on innovation and fine saddle craftsmanship to become the standard of quality you expect. We attribute the success of our brand to our family of employees. With a deep sense of community and pride in their work, the Circle Y team boasts a combined total of over 1,500 years of experience.

Today, we continue to handcraft high-quality saddles and tack with the heritage, tradition, and care the company was founded on. Establishing this with stylish and innovative products, Circle Y products reflect the current trends in design that are ahead of the industry in technology. With our goal to be America’s favorite saddle, we developed the patented Flex2® tree design. It has become a rider favorite because of the lightweight and great saddle fit for a broad selection of horses. You’ll find this tree in many of the different types of saddles.

Along with the Flex2® tree, we do our own tree fit research by fitting hundreds of horses annually. We use that knowledge to develop wood trees that fit many horses well. This passion has led us to educate riders because when they are aware of good saddle fit, their horses receive a comfortable ride which leads to better performance.

Circle Y gear is sold exclusively through authorized Circle Y dealers. Hundreds of dealers throughout the United States, Canada, and others worldwide provide selection and product knowledge. Thousands of satisfied Circle Y riders, from professional to novice, ride saddles provided by their Circle Y dealers.
