Although it wasn't a barrel saddle (it was a Wade), I've had a Corriente and found nothing wrong with it. The quality of the saddle was very good and, I thought, well made.

The down side is that they only come with one tree size, a 7" gullet and full QH bars. On the positive side, the leather was an excellent quality, the tree was sturdy, the tooling was good, and could easily sell for much more then their selling price if it was in a tack store. It is a heavy saddle. The owner is easy to deal with and available to talk to. The only reason I sold mine was because it didn't fit the new horse.

I know there are several people on the forum who have the brand and all have nothing but good things to say about them. This is all first hand and not hearsay.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Great to hear! I was rather put off in hearing they were cheap saddles.
I'm quite pleased to hear they have full bars rather than semi. I have a rather thick and stout gelding.
I love all the varieties for the saddles they have. I will most certainly call them when I'm ready for a new saddle.

Have you check horsetackreview? Corrientes are mentioned there by people who rate them from personal experience.

The info I have been given on the Corriente brand has been very positive. Tey are not 1500+ dollar saddles but reported to be well made mid priced saddles.
