The Cascade Crossover is the latest in Julie’s line of saddles and is the lightest, weighing only 23 pounds. Julie designed this saddle with the trail rider in mind—it’s lightweight, comfortable, and functional. The inspiration behind her design was the McClellan Calvary saddle and this “crossover” saddle truly offers the best of both English and Western saddles in a light weight, fully-treed, leather saddle. The specially designed Flex2® tree has a high gullet and swells on the pommel, but no horn. The deep seat pocket and swells give great security in the saddle, while the narrow twist and close contact give exceptional comfort. It has a unique center-fire rigging with long billets, and it comes with a two-buckle elastic cinch, allowing you to adjust the balance of the saddle to the horse’s back, for better comfort and individual fit. Wide stirrup leathers wrap softly around your leg (no Western fenders), but with a Western style stirrup for security.

This “crossover” saddle is the best of all worlds in a saddle. It has a bareback feel, while offering the comfort and security of a full saddle. The light weight design makes it easy to lift onto any size horse, its hybrid style looks at home in both English and Western crowds, it’s highly functional for trail/pleasure riding and, like all the Peak Performance saddles designed by Julie Goodnight, it offers the rider a truly balanced ride, supporting good equitation and soft aids.


Saddle and Tack Return Policy In an effort to insure fit and satisfaction, we offer the following return policy on saddles and matching tack purchased directly from Goodnight via internet or phone order and drop-shipped from either Goodnight or Circle Y, under the following conditions:

You must contact our office for a return authorization within one week of receipt of the saddle.

All new saddles must be returned in new condition; no scratches or wear marks, no horse hair or dirt, no dirt scratches in the stirrup, wear marks on straps or anywhere on saddle or matching tack. If the saddle or tack is not in new/ready-to-sell condition when returned, a deduction will be made in the refund amount, according to the sole discretion of Circle Y Saddles or Goodnight which ever applies.

Saddles returned in new condition, as stated above, will incur a 10% restocking fee.  If you are exchanging your saddle for another Julie Goodnight saddle, there will be no restocking fee.

Non-Stock Items: A non-stock item is anything that we are building specifically to your specifications. An example would be a saddle that you selected specific conchos, tooling, or seat materials.  Because these items are not something we regularly stock and it will be built specifically for you, we are unable to accept returns or cancellations once customized order is placed.

Original shipping fees will not be refunded and customer must pay the return shipping cost, except in the case of defective merchandise. Once you receive your saddle, you will have a full week to assess the fit to your horse and you, during which time you can get authorization to return the saddle if necessary.

We suggest you try the saddle on the horse right away, with a towel or blanket between the horse and saddle and assess the fit before you attach a cinch and ride in the saddle. If there is a question on the fit, get input from someone knowledgeable in saddle fit. Once you have determined the saddle fits your horse, you can cinch it up and sit in it to make sure it is the right fit for you; be very careful not to scratch or mar the leather, we suggest wrapping the stirrup leather prior to your test ride to keep the leather pristine. If you decide it is a good fit for your horse and you, you may begin riding normally in the saddle; just keep in mind it takes very little riding in a saddle for it to lose its “new” condition.

Do you have a demo program? I know I could buy and try it, but it's almost impossible to really ride a saddle and see how it does without getting some sweat and dirt on least where we live. Thank you. Allyson asked on October 4, 2023

Hello Allyson, Unfortunately, we do not have a demo program on saddles and tack. Have you checked with Circle Y about this? They may have a program.

Do you offer the billet keepers, stirrup leathers and / or the girth for sale separately? I have a similar saddle with a synthetic girth, with western leather fenders but I have bad knees. Thank you. Cheryl asked on August 7, 2022

Hello Cheryl,
We don't, but I can order them from Circle Y for you. Here's their website. Sincerely, Diana
