"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.
The Legend is the replica of the Circle Y saddle that Martha herself custom designed and still rides in daily. This saddle sits you down on the approach to the barrel, enabling you to push your horse further up into the turn. It keeps you from being thrown forward. The 1" taller swell means the built up front end gives you more balance on the approach to a barrel.
Not only are Josey Ultimate saddles some of the best-looking saddles on the market, they are made and tested thoroughly to make sure they are exactly what barrel racers are looking for: forward hung stirrups, deep seats, and higher fronts. The Legend has a faux gator bicycle seat, copper swell plates, copper conchos, and copper accents. It's a beauty!
Josey Ultimate Legend Barrel Saddle is built on Josey's signature Ultimate wood tree designed to Martha Josey's personal style and preferences. These saddles fit a wide range of horses.
