I have tried a bunch of different styles of western saddles over the years. From ropers to barrel saddles to pleasure saddles and I really love my wade. It gives me a really deep seat and doesn't try to force me into an unnatural position like some saddles do. It has a nice deep "pocket" to it. But I don't know how much they are all alike either. It would be a gamble for me, even with a Corriente wade, that I would like the seat and it would fit my horses as nicely as my current wade. But I would really like two nice saddles in my tack room- one for each horse.
