So, I have read lots of reviews that say only good things about corrientes saddles- which I love to hear. However the cheap price does concern me especially in today's economy where everyone is cutting corners. Its hard to imagine a Corriente saddle made 10 years ago, verses a recently made model be same quality but I just wanted to ask for opinions for anyone who has bought a saddle from them recently and what they thought about them.
Now I KNOW I get what I pay for but I simply cannot afford a 3000 custom saddle built to fit just one horse. I need something that can be used on different horses and still fit ok with help of a good pad. All I do is trail ride but my saddle I used was ill fitted, and caused my horses to be sore so I got rid of it and am looking for new saddle. I kept coming across the Corriente brand that seemed to be consistent with positive reviews but those seem to be from a few years ago and am wondering if perhaps there has been any changes that affected the quality or if they are still a highly recommended low budget saddle?
Here is the saddle I am currently interested-
