Product Description

Q. How do I read my serial number?
A.
In the 50 years of Circle Y, there have been many configurations of serial numbers. (Actually is the ‘model’ number. The ‘serial’ number is the date code of the current saddles). In older saddles, less information is coded in the numbers. Additionally, standardization of the numbers in some years is not reliable. To help you decipher your number, we have attempted to provide some guidance here. Please remember the saddle could be a discontinued style, and no information for tree sizing, pricing, and category of the saddle will be found. Circle Y in the past had several building locations located in small towns around Yoakum. Some saddles may say Sweet Home, Shiner, Cow Country, or Rebel but are all genuine Circle Y brand. Circle Y also makes special saddles for some of its dealers, which have a ‘J’ as its first numeral. 'SP' in front of the model means Special for special makeup.
Current numbers: May 2006 to present
Note: a date code will be included on the plate, along with the long number, which will tell the year of manufacture and the unique number for that saddle (example 20090001- which is 2009 and 0001 the unique number for the saddle)

For older numbering-1990s to April 2006
Serial number position example: 1234-5678-90AB-CD
1234= style number of saddle
5= Tree size (1- Semi Quarter Horse; 5- Full Quarter Horse)

8=  Saddle color- see above list
90= Month of completion (01- January; 02- February; ...)
AB= Year of completion (97 is 1997)
CD= A possible extra number here means that more than one of these was made that day so it received a unique number
        of 1, 2, or 10, for example.
For older saddles-1970s & 1980s
These numbers vary greatly. The first three would be reliable as the style number of the saddle. Beyond that, it could be different.
Serial number example: 1234-4567
123= style number of saddle
4= could be seat size number on some saddles. Measure for best information.
The rest are unclear.
Saddles from 1960s
Will have a one or two digit number. This indicates a saddle style. That is all the numbers will tell.
