Well I went ahead and ordered a CSW 126 Wade Saddle from them. Nobody touches their prices for what they make. Local tack shops where I live don't have any saddles that cheap unless its a synthetic. And I'm not going to find a used one in an 18 because anyone who has one probably got it custom made.
The good thing is that they have standardized their tree. Which means that if you know someone with a Corriente saddle and it fits your horse then their other saddles will too. They all have the same bar spread and angle.
Like I said my girlfriend has one of their saddles. At first she thought the front bar pads had a little too much pressure on the back of her shoulder. Well I watched a good video about saddle fitting that made a lot of sense especially the part about scooting the saddle back to where it sits naturally.
My girlfriend was taught (or it may just be what works for her horses) that the front of the saddle should line up with the center of the horses shoulder. Well my horse has such big shoulders that when she does that the bar presses into the back of her shoulder. So I did an experiment. Before I cinched the saddle down I did like what the lady in the video does and scooted the saddle back to where it sits naturally, cinched up and had her ride my horse.
She immediately told me that she felt more secure and balanced with the saddle in the new position and my horse more readily wanted to move out and maintain faster paces. After an hour and a half in the arena to make sure my horse was good and sweaty I checked the sweat marks again. This time there were no dry spots and my horse didn't flinch at any palpitation.
