Omaha Flex-Lite Trail Saddle 1554


Made In The USA

Circle Y's Flex-Lite trail saddles are beautiful enough to ride in the show ring, but comfortable enough for an extra long trail ride. This saddle's special features include multiple strings to attach riding gear and Circle Y's improved contoured tunnel skirt design.

The new tunnel skirt is open down the center of the saddle, allowing the horse's spine area to be free of potential pressure. The beautiful Herman Oak leather features a tooled shell border.

This saddle also features Circle Y's unique 3 way, in-skirt rigging, which combines the features of a standard western dee rig with the opportunity to change the position of the rig to a full, 3/4, or 7/8 by merely changing the use of the tie strap.

Circle Y's Newest Advance: The Flex2

Circle Y continues to improve its Flex-Lite tree technology. The new Flex2 tree design incorporates a tree that has been coated with DURAhide to ensure that it stays strong and resistant to the elements. DURAhide is much more dependable than traditional rawhide or fiberglass-covered trees and actually adds strength to the saddle.

It also contains Circle Y's new high density and low-density bars. The high-density bars give support and stability to the saddle and evenly distribute weight, while the low-density bars allow the saddle to conform to your horse, allowing freedom in motion and enhancing your horse's natural gait. Combine this with Circle Y's comfortable seat, and you have a saddle that promises to outperform the competition.

Special Features

Circle Y Flex2

The Flex2 tree has a rigid ground seat with a dual bar system that provides both stability and flexibility where it's needed. This tree is available for riders of all sizes and has proven over time to fit a large variety of horses.

Circle Y Impact Foam

Tired of a sore butt after a days riding? The impact foam seat offers you unmatched comfort in the saddle. Engineered to offer maximum cushion without wearing down quickly, this seat is everything you've been looking for to get you through the trail.

Softee Leather

Annoyed with the break-in period of your new saddle? No more! Softee Leather is revolutionary. Real full-grain leather with a broken in feel. Softee seat jockeys and fenders are ready to ride right out of the box.

Tunnel Skirt

The Flex2 Tunnel Skirt creates a channel in the spine area which will decrease rubbing, sore spots and any kind of pressure along the spine. The tunnel allows for hot air to escape while cool air flows in.

EBS

EBS (ErgoBalance Stirrups) tilt the stirrup to eliminate torque on the riders knees and ankles. No more sore joints after your ride! This will provide you increased comfort while promoting balanced riding.

Neo-Shock

The Neo-Shock skirt absorbs shock from rough terrain and uneven surfaces through the neoprene filler. This filler is designed to muffle any vibration for a smoother ride for both you and your horse. This skirt also conforms to the conformation of your horse.

3 Way Rigging

3-Way adjustable in-skirt rigging with several rigging options and positions to best suit fitting all of the different horse conformations.

Circle Y Omaha Flex2 Trail Saddle 1554 5 Love my saddle bought it about 5 years ago. oils up nice still looks like brand new. I use it all the time. I did get a 16" seat as I am 5'6 about 127 pounds. I like the extra room mostly in the winter when you have all your winter clothes on. I have a extra wide as my horse is fat and big threw the shoulders. Very comfortable.
Pros:Didn't have to break it in. Nice soft but heavy leather. Oils up nice do it twice a year. Very comfortable.
Cons:None

Circle Y-Omaha THE BEST SADDLE EVER 5 I special ordered a light oil with black strings. Sharp looking. I ordered it in regular size not wide. I've found that this particular saddle fits my QH and Tennessee Walker well. I ordered it to replace my 2007 Omaha saddle that fit every horse I've ever owned except one! My older Omaha is now my 'guest' saddle.
Pros:Love the finish on the saddle.
Love the fit for my horses.
Especially love the durability of Circle Y.
Cons:I miss the leather latigo straps as part of the saddle. Now you have to upgrade to it. Prefer the 'grip' of leather to the nylon. I forgot to order leather latigo and off cinch.

Great, solid, nice-looking saddle. 5 This is a great saddle. It is both fashionable and functional. The seat is really comfortable, the stirrups are comfortable, and the Flex2 Tree is awesome. It seems to be very well-made. Someone saw it on my horse and said it looked like the "Rolls Royce of saddles." I love it!

Beautiful saddle - lighter and fits my horse perfectly 5 This review is geared to clothes. I use this as a trail saddle, and the rounded skirt fits my short-bopped quarter horse perfectly. The saddle is so comfortable with the padded seat and not as heavy as some other leather saddles. The black looks great on any horse.

Very happy with my saddle 4 I was able to ride in this same saddle for several months before I ordered mine. That helped determine if it fit my horse and myself. I like the saddle very much. Reasons I won't give it 5 stars: The seat needs to come in 1/2" sizes. This is one of CY's most popular saddles, a 1/2" can make a big difference in fit. A 15" would have been very snug and i weigh 128 pounds, 5'6", size 3 or 5 in jeans. I am not a big woman. I got a 16" seat because I could not get a 15.5. and the 15 was way to tight. So the seat run small. Also the padding in the seat makes them very hot. I asked if I could have it made with something else or no pad, I like a slick seat. They said no. it was and still is after 4 months leaving lots of oil on my jeans. The other saddle I was using, which I had bought for my husband did not do this. Also even though the strips are suppose to be comfort and preturned i had problems with them. i replaced them with something else. All in all I have put a lot of hours on this saddle and I am very happy with it. I have a QH who previously had a semi QH bar and this reg tree works great with a CSI pad.

Very Happy with this Saddle 5 I bugged the fine folks at Horse Saddle Shop many, many times with different questions about different makes/models of saddles before deciding this would be the saddle I wanted to try. I wanted a sharp looking saddle with minimal tooling that would allow me to ride correctly for Western Dressage but also be comfortable enough for trail riding. I also dabble with obstacle training and wanted something nice enough to compete in. A couple of the big reasons for this saddle being on my favorite list was 1 Circle Y offers this model in an X-Wide size, and  I needed a rounded skirt for my short backed horse. I purchased this for a 9 year old Gypsy Vanner Gelding with a very wide/short back. I ordered this model in Medium Oil with the Apache seat. It wasn't in stock and I had to wait 5 weeks for it to be built and shipped directly from Circle Y. It arrived on the day I was expecting it to be shipped so that was a nice surprise. I could have had the Walnut color if I wanted it immediately but I'm so glad I waited for the color I really wanted. It matches tack I already had perfectly. I was concerned the padding on the seat might feel too thick but I feel like it is comfortable without sacrificing the feeling of contact. Most importantly - my horse LOVES this saddle. He moves out willingly and freely and it puts me in a nice position for training exercises. I highly recommend. Very happy with the Customer Service I received as well. Questions were asked over email and answered promptly.

Nice saddle with a few flaws 3 It could be a great saddle unfortunately the finish wears off rapidly and comes off on your clothes. This should not happen for this price saddle. Also it squeaks a bit when you ride. It's a shame because it's a nice comfortable saddle and very light weight. My horse is an Arab with decent withers and high shoulders, this saddle did not fit him properly and gave him a sore back which makes me sad, so beware and make sure if fits your horse. Horsesaddle shop has great guidelines.

Finally a saddle that fits my Morgan and Quarter Horse! 5 This Circle Y saddle is without a doubt the best saddle I've owned. The saddle is well made, light weight and best of all fits both of my horses! I use this saddle on both my foundation-type AQHA mare and also my foundation-type short and wide-backed round-barreled Morgan gelding. Any of you out there who own a Morgan know how hard they are to find a saddle that fits. If you've been looking for a saddle - I would highly recommed trying this one. The combination of the flex tree and round skirts were a perfect combination. In addition to the horse's comfort, I feel as though I could ride in this saddle all day! Love the softee leather - almost no break-in time. The saddle hardly squeaks which is also nice. Seat is very comfortable. As far as ordering online, I was a little hesitant, but I used the saddle tree templates available on Horse Saddle Shop's website and selected the extra-wide tree for my particular horses. Spoke with a rep from the store to confirm before placing my order. Store personnel were very knowledgeable and helpful. The saddle arrived well packaged and right on time. The only slightly negative I can comment on - and it may not even be a negative, just something new for me to get used to - is that the inside of the stirrup leathers is lined with nylon instead of being all leather. As I said, it may not really be a negative, I was thinking it probably helps reduce the overall weight of the saddle and will keep the stirrup leathers from stretching. Just something I'm not used to - but if I were to look for another saddle, it would definitely not be something I would be concerned about. I would buy another one of these saddles without hesitation.

Comfortable, quality trail saddle! 5 The Omaha trail saddle is by far my favorite model Circle Y Saddle, and I've owned many different ones. I received my saddle very quickly, and the craftsmanship was wonderful! It was pretty supple right out of the box and didn't squeak at all on the first ride. The shorter, round skirt allows this saddle to work well on shorter backed horses. I ordered the wide tree. I've ridden over ten different stocky quarter horses in it and it fit each one very well. It also fit my thick built saddle horse, and she is very difficult to fit. I've never experienced any white hairs or soreness using this saddle. The position of the stirrups is perfect for causal riding. I also ordered the Apache seat. I prefer it to the grainout because it is more "grippy" and secure feeling to me. It's also very soft and comfy. I highly recommend the Circle Y Omaha to anyone wanting a comfortable trail saddle, for both the rider and the horse!

Comfy saddle, nicely balanced ride 4 It took me a year to decide to purchase this saddle. I am pleased with the fit for myself and my horse. I was very disappointed in circle y and their quality control. The saddle came with some major scratches on it. It looked like the leather was dragged against something prior to assembly. Circle y offered a small discount for me to keep it. I would rather have had them replace it, but it would have been another couple of months for a new one. Since it was their fault it was damaged, not mine, I think they should have offered a rush on another one. Like other reviewers I'm seeing the light oil stain rub off...after 4 rides. So, 5 stars for comfort and 2, at most, for quality and durability. I rounded my 3.5 stars up to 4 to try to be fair. Get it together, circle y. The horse saddle shop was nice to deal with and did what they could to help. I'm keeping the saddle, mostly because it fits my hard to fit QH. If you are spending this much money, you might want to look at someone else if quality and durability is your priority. The comfort can't be beat though and my boy and I appreciate that.

I love this saddle! 5 I bought this saddle for my 16.1 hand gelding, I needed a saddle that I could easily lift onto his back since I am only 5' 4", and I can saddle him easily. I am impressed with the quality of this saddle and it's comfort from day one is exceptional.
