Cirlce Y Hybrid Harper Flex2 Trail Saddle 1673

Made In The USA

The Harper Hybrid Flex2 is the perfect choice for anyone looking for a lightweight trail saddle option. Using suede instead of traditional leather offers all of the features you need, without adding the weight of leather to your horse's back. It uses our most popular Flex2 trail tree which has a 4" cantle and 13" wide swell to provide a moderate seat, the standard in all-day comfort.


  • Anyone looking for a lightweight trail saddle option
  • For riders of all sizes, seats range from 14” to 18”
  • The hard-to-fit horse
  • The Flex2 innovative design is proven to fit various horses, available in regular, wide, and extra wide.


  • Flex2 saddles are our most popular trail saddles, packed with comfort features for the horse and rider.
  • The Flex2 Trail tree is the standard in all-day comfort
  • 13” wide swell and 4” cantle provide a moderate seat
  • Neo-Shock skirt absorbs shock through neoprene filler and conforms to the horse’s back for comfort.
  • The Flex2 Tunnel Skirt creates a channel in the spine area to decrease rubbing, sore spots, and pressure along the spine. Allows airflow under the saddle to reduce heat buildup.
  • 3-Way Adjustable In-Skirt rigging combines the features of a standard western dee rig with the opportunity to change the rigging position to Full. 3/4, or 7/8 by merely changing the tie strap.
  • Note: Saddle should be rigged the SAME on both sides


  • Impact Foam seat for all-day riding comfort
  • The tree’s flexibility promotes freedom of movement while feeling connected to your horse during rides.
  • The suede skirts and fenders provide all the benefits of a Cordura saddle but the ruggedness of leather.
  • The suede itself functions like leather without the added bulk and the added benefit of masking scratches and blemishes out on the trail.
  • Built in Yoakum, Texas!

    *Important Note Flex2 trees are designed to flex at the tips of the bars, they allow freedom of movement for your horse while riding but do not offer flexible fits so it’s important to order the correct size for your horse’s back


    The placement of the saddle on the horse's back is essential to function and comfort. The correct saddling position places the front edge of the bar BEHIND the horse's shoulder blade. This is the sweet spot where the saddle will rest comfortably without interfering with the horse's movement.

  • Here at Circle Y, we take saddle fit seriously! Often, we see riders over-padding on a well-fitting saddle. This can lead to poor saddle fit, saddle sores, and a sore back! It's a good rule to always check your fit and adjust pad width sizing accordingly!
  • Have you evaluated your horse's topline conformation? A weak topline can lead to poor saddle fit. Horses with hollows behind the shoulder, asymmetry, prominent spines, swaybacks, and downhill builds need correctional pads to ensure proper fit. Check out our correction pads at Reinsman Equestrian today to ensure your horse's comfort. Call our customer service team for more info!


  • 10-Year Tree Warranty
  • 1 Year of Craftsmanship
  • If at any point your saddle is showing craftsmanship failures within the warranty period, call our customer service team to receive a prompt repair.


    Every new saddle has been oiled and then finished with a protective finish, so you don't need to oil it for about six months. You should oil it sooner if you're riding a lot in dry or variable weather conditions. The protective finish is water-based, so your leather can breathe. Do not use detergent-based, solvent, or harsh cleaning products. Rub the leather gently, and do not scrub vigorously with soap and water. This saddle is a hybrid saddle built with Suede use only a cleaner specially designed for the care of suede leather. The Suede should be dusted or vacuum cleaned free of dust and dirt, brushed with a stiff brush to bring back the nap, and spot cleaned with a damp cloth. A conditioner of any kind would probably “glue” the nap and you would lose the texture of the suede. Most saddle leather products tell you not to use it on suede. For more information, please see your warranty card, or contact a Circle Y representative!

  • Western Saddle Seat Size Calculator

    Please try our new seat sizing tool to find your size

    Calculated Seat Size Shown Below

    Please select your body shape:

    Do you prefer a tighter Barrel Fit?

    Are you fitting for a Tucker Saddle?

    Calculated Seat Size:

    There is a lot of room for personal preference with seat sizing, but as a general rule it is better to error on the side of ordering a seat size that is too large rather than erring on the side of a seat that will be too small.

    Things to Consider

    • Tucker adds 1/2inch to their seat sizes (due to thick seat padding)
      16.5” Tucker = 16” normally

    • Barrel riders usually take 1” less on the seat size
      16” Trail Rider = 15” Barrel Rider

    • Ranch (slick seats) usually ride smaller (1/2inch seat size) so they don’t slide around
      16” is for most men, 15” for most women

    • Trail Saddles with High Cantles (5”) make the seat sizes feel smaller
      Trail Saddle with 5” cantle will feel smaller in the seat than one with a 3.5” cantle

    • English Saddles don’t convert exactly but often are 2” bigger
      18” English = 16” Western

    • Riders with inseams under 30” or 5’ tall and under often need custom cut fenders
      Tall riders with long legs but lighter weight may need custom cut fenders as well

    Checking the Fit

    • General Guideline is about 3 fingers between your thigh and the swell.

    I've purchased 2 saddles from the Horse Saddle Shop. Both times it was a pleasure. The first saddle was not custom and was an easy transaction. The second time, I ordered a custom saddle and worked with Charlie. He was knowledgable and professional throughout our long arduous process of getting the custom saddle made by the manufacurer. I would definately purchase a saddle from Horse Saddle Shop and Charlie again.

    I have never been more pleased with a business and so satisfied with my purchase! I contacted Horse Saddle Shop about a saddle to fit my Haflinger. Josh spent a lot of time on phone and email with me until late night. I let him pick a bridle and breast plate to match. Everything was perfect, shipping was fast, boxed well, prices very fair. I love my saddle, and will definitely be making more purchases from Horse Saddle Shop.

    Incredibly streamlined and easy. I am absolutely blown away by the service horse saddle shop provided me. I am naturally a very indecisive person and incredibly picky when it comes to my gear, so after months of shopping and reading my boyfriend suggested here. He also had a positive experience. I browsed their wide selection of used saddles and there it was, MY saddle. The chat staff was incredibly helpful and my saddle was here 4 days later even with free shipping! The saddle was accurately represented in the photos is far from "used". I'm thrilled, to say the least. Thank you!

    After so much searching and being nervous about ordering a saddle online. I picked up the phone and called the Horse Saddle Shop to ask a few questions about a used saddle that was on their website. They were so nice and helpful. I ordered my very lightly used Circle Y saddle and a new saddle pad. It arrived very quickly. Only a few days. I LOVE my new saddle. In great condition and rides great! I would highly recommend using them for your tack needs. I know I will be in the future!
