Notes from Julie: 

A Flex2 tree and rounded skirt makes this saddle ideal for serious trail riders who want comfort but still want to ride correctly and get the most out of their horse. With many of the features of the Monarch, this saddle is designed with the trail rider in mind—it’s lightweight and comfortable for the rider while giving a superior fit for the horse.


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.

Q & A

Is this saddle suitable for a high withered/broad shouldered & short backed Thoroughbred? Also Wide or Regulat? What size would you recommend I currently ride in a 17.5inch English Saddle Marg asked on July 20, 2021
Hello Marg, It's difficult to fit over email. What tree width are you using now? Can you send me pictures at the Wind River Trail Saddle has a short skirt, which is great for short backed horses. I'm not sure about the tree width. • Make sure your horse is on level ground to photograph saddle fit pictures. • Take these pictures with no saddle pad-only the saddle on the horse’s back. • Take one view standing at a 45-degree angle from your horse’s point of shoulder (in front of and to the side of the horse’s shoulder) take one shot of the left and one shot of the right side of the horse. This shows the fit in the front of the saddle. • When filming the clearance of the pommel over the wither; have the camera aprox. one foot away from the gullet of the saddle, look through your viewfinder to make sure you can see the top of the wither and both sides of the pommel of the saddle-adjust camera, so this area fills the viewfinder. Take this shot with no pad on the horse and make sure the mane isn’t sticking up inside the pommel and do not place your hand in this area. Standing to the side and in front of the shoulder will help you get the correct angel. • Making sure your horse is on level ground and squared up (all four feet directly under themselves) take a side view picture of the saddle. Make sure the entire top of the saddle, shoulders of the horse and hips/rear of the horse are all visible in the picture. Fill the viewfinder with this shot showing the neck from just in front of the shoulder all the way to the tail and the top of the saddle including seat jockies are showing. This should show levelness of the saddle. • Using the above guidelines stand directly behind the horse, approximately 4’ away or standing far enough behind that you can see the entire rear all the way to the ground and center the rear of the horse in the viewfinder-take the rear view shot.
