Hey, has anyone ever gotten an association saddle from them before? That is kinda what I am interested in or do you think something else would be better?

It all depends on what you're really going to be using them for. They're all built and styled differently. The associations are nice and sturdy, I had one by Corriente and loved it. I used it for ranch work and trail rides, they're very versatile almost like a wade saddle. Can always be customized too, which is a plus!

The one that I have ,and my brother's as well, are both Association saddles. IMHO, they are a combination of the best aspects of every style. You get the deep seat like you would with a Wade, the seat isn't too flat so it's comfortable for long stretches spent riding, the leathers are set just a touch farther back than they are in, say, a roper so that you don't have so much of a chair seat, you have larger swells which come in handy if a horse gets fractious or your riding fast over rough country, the tree is designed to be used for pulling heavy stuff so you can hang anything off the horn you need to and even pull logs off the trail.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

So far very imprssed with the saddles I'm seeing from them. Might even get one myself. Looking for something to use for dinking around on my Quarab. He's hard to fit though, so going custom might not be ourbest bet.

Corriente only does FQH bars, so if your horse can fit a wide saddle then it might be good. However, getting a custom tree and having a pro make it (although more expensive) would be your very best bet:)

I wish but a full custom would be out of my price range. Plus he's 25 so I want something that will fit other horses down the road. He is really short backed and does fit a FQHB crates Meleta Brown Freedom trail saddle but I dont really like it that much.
