Super! New saddles are exciting!

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.

I have never been in a wade, but a deep seat is really calling my name! The barrel saddle will be a big change from my little simco.

Smrobs... What size seat did you get from corriente? Hope I didn't get too big of a seat.

Mine is a 15". It's the same size my brother rides as well.

Hmmm.. I went with a 15 1/2. Hope I didn't go too big. I know you said we're close to the same size.

It also depends on the style. A 15.5 in a roping saddle (which was what my last one was) feels a lot different than a 15.5 in, say, a ranch saddle. I bet I could have gotten a 15.5 and been perfectly comfortable but with some of the horses that I ride, I like a bit of snugness there. I find it's easier for me to ride out the silliness if my butt doesn't move very far .

Most people notice a size if it's too small or way too big. If you are within +1 inch then you should feel fine. Always nice to have more room than not enough. I can ride a 17 inch saddle, but I bought an 18 because its a new saddle and I know that I want the extra room.Posted via Mobile Device

I agree here. Roping saddles as you can see by the design have a much shorter cantle, so you won't notice a roper that's an inch too small as you would say a association or wade. Mostly because your butt can override the cantle a little on a roper where as everything is held securely within confines of the seat on a wade or association.

A wade also has an "A" fork which allows the rider to move forward a little but if you want to tighten up the seat a bit, put on bucking rolls.

5thHorseman,

Did you receive your saddle yet?

I'm still haunting this thread too. I am hoping to sell one of my old saddles (on consignment at a local tack store) so I can fund a Corriente.
