As others have mentioned, I can't really comment on their barrel saddles, but I have 2 of their ranch saddles sitting in my tack room right now and I love them.

I got mine about 3 and a half years ago for the sole purpose of breaking colts. I needed something that was tough enough to stand up to whatever happened....and cheap enough to be easily replaced if it got tore up beyond repair.

So far, I don't have a single complaint about it. It's super good working quality, especially for the price, and the most comfortable and secure saddle I've ever put my butt in.

And, as Po mentioned, it fits a wide range of horses from a 13.1 shetland cross


To a 13.2 super narrow mule


To my 14.3 stocky mustang


To my 16.2 bulky draft cross


It's been dropped in the dirt, stomped on, rolled on, and I've roped some critters from it that came close to outweighing my horses and it's held up just fine.

My brother has one that he's had for 10 years or more. Back when he worked in a feedlot, he would put more torture on a saddle in a month than most folks would in a lifetime...and he's still riding in it and it still fits great.

Unless it comes a point when I need a tree size that they don't offer (like Po said, they only sell FQHB with 7" gullets), then I plan to continue to get my saddles from them.

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/

I've been throwing the idea around of getting one of their wade tree saddles. Just as a spare for people that come and want to ride or a beater type saddle. The only thing I saw that I didn't like was they had metal ground seats in them. That being said for that price you aren't going to get a custom made hand carved leather ground seat like a Freckers saddle. They want 675 for a wade tree saddle half rough out half tooled delivered to your door. Really cant beat that.

Bought this Corriente saddle off friends last nite. Needs some cleaning but was only used 3 times. Haven't researched anything or much on it yet. It appears to be a "Ranch Cutter". I believe they said its 5/6 years old. Came with breast collar. I really like much from what I've seen from it so far. Please excuse JD garden tractor I currently have it resting on. Got in late and just put pad on hood of tractor and threw it on. Any questions/comments good/bad or ugly would be appreciated. Thanks in advance !

We love ours(2 team ropers, 2 ranch associations, and 1 barrel)...they are tough and can take a beating. I am using my older(2004ish) team roper in the video I posted in the roping section.

Rawhide: Great bargain on your saddle! I love my Corriente too and so does my horse. I figure after 2 years, I already have my money's worth out of it, even if it was destroyed today. Let us know how you like it.

Sorry OP -- don't know how they are for barrel racing though.

It belonged to a lady. She is the horse person in the family. My guess would be too many horses, too many saddles,tack etc.Limited time . Only one butt !
Guess they/she felt like downsizeing. Also IMO in some remote circles Corriente is not a household name.
What I find interesting is word/name Corriente in Spanish I believe means average or current . I'am picky about my saddles and I can tell you even though haven't put it on a horse yet and ridden in it I like it.
