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.

    I purchased a Wind River Saddle for myself and let my Granddaughter ride it one time. Her comment was “Grandma my butt really likes this saddle and it fits my horse”. My mistake because I ended up purchasing another one for myself, again. You would think I learned from my mistakes but no because my husband used my saddle, we ended up purchasing a third one for him. These saddles are of quality leather and really well made. They have the stirrups already turned so you can ride them for hours without leg or knee discomfort. We have different size horses, all saddles fit us and the horses. We highly recommend these saddles

    I wanted to thank you for the quick shipping of my saddle and to tell you how absolutely thrilled I am with it. The pictures don’t do it justice. The tooling is so beautiful, and without a doubt it is the most beautiful saddle I’ve ever seen. The fenders are pliable, and the stirrups being turned is a wonderful relief to my knees. The additional padding under the bars are a comfort to fitting my horses, plus the seat is so comfortable. Of course, if Julie put her name on it, I knew it would be nice, but just couldn’t believe how nice it was until I was able to look at it. The pad looks great with it, too, and the saddle was well packed and arrived in perfect shape. My only regret is that I don’t have more time to ride in it! Looking forward to many hours in the arena and on the trail enjoying my beautiful saddle. I want to just stare at it when I can’t be riding in it.

    Thanks to you and to Julie Goodnight for your outstanding products and customer service.

    I recently purchased the “Wind River” saddle reluctantly. I have been so happy riding in my treeless saddles for the last 20 years. However I now have a little Mustang who is built more like a pot bellied pig, and the cinch got up behind his elbows and caused irritation. I decided that I needed to get a “double rigged” saddle and I chose the Wind River because I trail ride and I watch Julie’s show on RFDTV and she has talked about them on her show. I must say that everything she cracks them up to be is true. This is the most comfortable saddle imaginable. It puts me in a proper riding position. In the treeless saddle my legs were alway a bit too forward. It fit my horse well and no
    More cinch rub sores. If you are considering a new saddle I highly recommend Julie Goodnight saddles. If you call the toll free number, Diana will help you decide which product and features are perfect for you, like she helped me. Happy trails, Cindy
