Circle G Ranch Saddles
Circle G Brand Saddles
Fitts Colt Breaking Saddle

Circle G Brand Saddles are the quality and pride of hand made saddles that you can pass on to your grandkids. And since we never know quite what those kids may be doing, how about a heavy duty training saddle that will let them do anything, just like it has for you. Engineered to take the daily grind, even in the most trying of weather conditions on the ranch, still, ranch ropers are among the most comfortable Western saddles made.

If you ever wrangled a string of mustangs, you understand the need for something that will be balanced so you can work through rough bucks and rearing. A swell that you can sink your thighs into if needed. Strong rigging. A seat that holds, with a cantle that doesn't bite. 

I remember a big 17 hand monster that a friend brought to me. Bought at a sale, CHEAP! A beautiful animal. About a 7 yr old. The new owner had hit the dirt several times. Up my driveway, here came horse and walker. David, the new owner, explained the horse jumped really hard, and he couldn't stay on. (When I was early twenties, thirties, even forties, I loved a challenge. Still do if the mood hits.) This gelding would rear when the rider put a foot in the stirrup. So what! I was frisky too. When the rear didn't stop me, "ole Dobbin" jumped in the air and landed on all fours, hard. David's saddle pommel was between my legs. Trouble was, the rest of the saddle was still on the equine's back. I had shot into the rafters. ...Well. I put one of my "colt" saddles on, and we tried again. When "ole Dobbin" was in the air, I spurred and popped his ears at the same time with a cupped hand. Horse stopped and walked off like a gentleman. Even did turnbacks, extended trot, backed up at stop, another couple dressage and reining moves. That horse was great. (Once he knew you could command him.) Lesson learned - Use a real saddle when breaking colts, or worse, spoiled aged horses!

Garroutte Products will make cowboy saddles that are better than average. Better in quality, better in fit and better in performance.  

Whether or not you have the experience of a professional, anybody can sit in one of these ranch type colt breaking saddles and tell it was made for a lifestyle. The tree and the saddle make your life more comfortable by placing emphasis on your seat and leg position. These cowboy saddles allow good close positioning with your horse. This series is built on a tough, (get out of the way till you need it pommel), bullhide covered wooden tree, made so you can take care of business. A strong post horn is used for roping, dragging, hanging tight or pulling. The ground seat and rise is proper to aid you in your riding, rather than restricting you, because you never know what life can bring you today. There are several stirrup options depending on your preferences for your type of ranch work. 

Designed for the strength and endurance which a cowhand or wrangler will put it through. Don't plan on having to trade this one in after a couple seasons! Your using saddle is built with selected woods, placed in positions according to their flexing and their rigid properties. Then bullhide covered to hold in moisture and add years of life. The tree maker gives a 5 year warrantee, but this is the type of tree that lasted over 20 years in your grandfather's saddles. Using the best leather on top of all that foundation will keep your seat in the saddle till it's time to "Give it up to Jesus".

The standard tree in this wrangling saddle is Full Quarter Horse bars with a 4 inch height cantle, but with the specially formed seat, you achieve the riding support of higher cantles in other saddles. 4 inches of cantle will still allow you to lean back on a hilly ride without feeling a bite in your lower back. And, you can choose between a standing straight, or Cheyenne cantle roll.

Since leg position is important in the work of a cowboy, we are going to ask you a few questions about your leg dimensions, sort of like fitting for chaps, so that length of leg as well as diameter of thigh are properly positioned. With seat sizes from 14 to 16 in half inch increments, fit can be exacting. 

Rigging is shown as a dropped plate. Reinforced leather slot in the rear. Heavy duty rigging for all kinds of ranch work. The 1 piece hardseat can be rough or smooth side out. Want a padded bicycle seat added on top? We can do that too. 

High quality choices of heavy duty synthetic fleece, and wool are offered.

Having a breast collar that is sturdy enough for the job, yet will move with your horse can make a difference in safety or falling off.  Be sure your girth is properly fitting and always do a pre-flight check on all parts of reins, headstalls, bits, ...everything, before your ride.

Our Pricing:  

Our CC Prices are based on the saddle as shown and described.  Don't be shy about asking for options you need. 
For You, we will deliver more saddle value for the buck than anyone; because, 1) we spend more time asking you, your trainers, instructors and judges, the questions needed, to get everything right for you.  2) we actually ride. 3) we study several disciplines and more than one breed, allowing us to cross over great ideas. 4) we have the experience of fitting hundreds of riders and their horses. 5) we respectfully ask the tree makers and the saddle makers to work with us as a team. Making you the winning rider that you deserve to be always takes a willing team.  These are a few reasons that we understand more about riding, and fitting saddles than most! 

Really, with all the many options available, these saddles are hard to price without a conversation anyway.  There are options of colors, seats, sizes, and fitting. 
Thanks, & God Bless,   Chuck
