I was wondering what all the information on the circle Y saddle tin label means. I know you're supposed to be able to tell the year and maybe seat size. Here's one I'm wondering about: 3330 1500 1198 01
14 Equitation. Is the equitation a good saddle and does that 14 in front mean the seat size is a 14 inch ? I know Circle Y's are great as I have an older one myself and even a youth one for sale. Just don't know all the info on the tags.

Here is what I know....

The first digit "3" shows the level/cost of the saddle with 1 being the highest and 3 being the lowest (entry level). The first 4 digits is the model # "3330" - I don't know how to interpret that. The next two digits is the seat size "15" is 15inch. The next two digits is the color:

00 Dark Oil
01 Walnut
04 Regular Oil
07 Ultra Lite
08 Pecan
18 Black

I beleive the next 6+ digits is the date and unique identifying number.

You have a 15" entry level Dark Oil Antique Saddle which I think was made in 1998.

*new in 2004 the tree size has been added as the last two digits.

Dear chuck:

Like I said in another post, I have a circle Y for Pleasure, I got it used and I had to condition the back of the leather that the Stirrups hang and also but something though the Stirrups to get them in the correct position.

I had gotten on a couple of diffrent horses in the barn with the saddle that is used for them and seem to like it better, it seems that my saddle has alot more to it then others.

this saddle was in really great shape for a used saddle from what I was told and for what I paid for.

I was told to use the Horsemans one step, I also have the Lexol conditioner which I use where it can not be seen in case it lightens the color. How long do you think it will take to break this saddle in, because right now I sometimes am not to crazy about it.

thank again Chuck I called circel Y and learnd that my saddle Number
27350118602
is model nuber 2735
made in november of 1986 and was the second saddle compleated in that run. the fact that it was made in 1986 really supprized me it is in exlant condition with only one sracht from a rope evan the fleece looks alomst new. so i thought( and was told ) that it was about five or six years old
so i was supprized and pleased to see that the Circle Y will stand up so well
thanks again

Thanks to everyone! I never thought i could learn so much about my circle Y from those numbers. I was very surprized to find out my youth saddle my mother got used for me when i was a kid was made in 84. It is in great condition and if i wasn't 6ft tall now i'd still ride in it! It'll always me my favorite saddle.

I went to the Circle Y website and couldn't find what the chart for interpreting the last two digits for tree size. If the last two digits are 02, what size would that be?

What are all the numbers. If it is an older (over a year) Circle Y, the last two digits represent the sequential number that particular saddle was in the mfg run.
