The PEAK Performance™ saddle line is designed and ridden by Julie Goodnight. She is a trainer, clinician, host of the TV show Horse Master with Julie Goodnight, and she’s on the Advisory Board of the Western Dressage Association of America. Drawing from her varied background in English and Western riding and her strong upbringing in classical riding, Goodnight recognizes that regardless of discipline a balanced position for the rider and fit for the horse are fundamental. Goodnight’s saddles provide a correct seat, narrow twist, close contact feel, and absolute comfort for both horse and rider to make them the perfect multi-use performance saddles. Equally suitable for the arena, show ring, or on the trail, the Peak Performance™ saddles are great for trail riding, reining, cow work, and Western Dressage.
Ideal for arena performance, trail riding and Western Dressage, it’s a great choice to meet a budget with all the essentials of the Wind River minus a few extra features. With the Flex2® tree technology, it conforms to the horse’s back while providing rider weight distribution and is light weight. Skirt has a close contact design for precise cueing, the Tunnel Skirt™ design alleviates pressure on horse’s spine, and Impact Foam™ seat with narrow twist and broad pocket provides all-day comfort. ErgoBalance™ stirrups and pre-twisted stirrup leathers reduce knee and ankle fatigue while promoting balanced riding. Available in Regular Oil finish (as shown), Walnut, or black.
“If you’re on a budget, but still want a good saddle, the Teton has all the essentials of the Monarch and Wind River, minus a few of the extra features.” Julie Goodnight
Flex2® saddles are designed to include comfort features for both the horse and rider that work in synergy with the Flex2® tree. Only Circle Y has the exclusive Flex2® tree design which uses a rigid ground seat for rider support, a high density bar which disperses rider weight, and low density bar which is against the horse and provides give for freedom of movement. This results in a lightweight saddle that will never get wider over time, flex in half, or overflex to create pressure points if properly fitted. Give yourself and your horse the lightweight comfort you’ve been craving!
