western saddle makers help please

Hey everyone, I am looking to buy my own saddle because I have been using my uncles old rope saddle for a while and when I say old...well...its not that old, but it could have been better taken care of ANYWAY, im not sure which saddle company is better, i've heard of a few but not sure which to go with, I would like a light rope saddle or barrel saddle im not going to do either but they are comfortable or if you know of a company with light (no heavier than 25 pounds) trail saddles you would be my best friend, im about a 15 or 16 seat,
My cousin bought a saddle from corriente saddles and its a beautiful barrel saddle and its guarenteed to last a while, that would be awesome! But im not too fond of barrel saddles, I havent sat in hers yet so I can say right now that I wouldnt buy one like it, my grandma wants me to get one like my cousins because its not only gorgeous and guarenteed my cousin had her first and middle name engraved in the back of the seat and WOW it looks really really cool my grandma wants me to get one like that because of something to do with memories I don't know I wasnt really listening lol but I wanted to see if you guys had heard of that company what you have to say about it, or another company that you liked tell me what you think!!
Or you trail riders with light saddles float me your saddle company number lol
Thanks guys!!!

Corriente saddles are made in 3 factories. 2 are in Mexico and one here in the US. They make a decent saddle for the money and if you order one and don't like it, they claim that they'll take it back for a full refund (without shipping of course).

They seem to be nice people to deal with. In that price range I prefer Rocking R or Dakota saddles but I think any of those or the Corriente is going to be over 25 lb. The Corriente uses a bullhide covered wood tree which is very strong and the other 2 use a fiberglass covered hardwood tree made by the Steele Tree Co. Which are very strong as well. I'm pretty sure that Dakota makes a flex tree saddle that will be lighter if you like that type of tree.

Yeah I think the corriente facotory here is in alb. New Mexico which is 2 hours from where I live so
Yeah I kind of hoped for a light saddle, but its ok if I get a medium heavy one, build up my arm muscles lol anyway, thanks for the feedback I think I might go with them, I went to their website and saw some more of their works, I also wanted to go down to our tack store and look at the saddles they have there, I know they are going to be a little pricey at the stores, but I was looking to look at the brands and sit in a few see which ones I like, just window shopping I guess you could say lol
Thanks! Anyone else?
