I actually like the cantle height of the Corriente, but then again I've never rode in a Circle Y. Does this saddle in particular look to be in good condition?

I think it looks fine. How old is it? Mine looks about the same and is about a year old. The only part you can tell has aged any on mine is the roughout jockeys like that one. With a cleaning and oiling, it'll spiff up pretty nice.

And I don't mind the cantle of my saddle either, but I trail ride, not actual barrel racing. The Circle Ys I have ridden in have had much higher cantles, or at least more vertical ones. One felt like a freaking couch. I would have watched tv in that thing..too bad I don't have $1700 for a saddle.

I've looked through craigslist but I'm only finding 14 in.. Your previous info did help :) I'm waiting on my tack shop to get some new saddles and maybe I'll get lucky :)

You could get one directly from Corriente for not much more than that. Mine was built to my order for $560, including shipping.

Another vote of confidence for Corriente here. I've never rode in one of their barrel saddles, but me, my brother, and my Dad all have ranch saddles from them and couldn't be happier.

One bit of information for if you contact them that they may not mention (no scheming on their part, folks just don't generally think to mention it) is that roughout is cheaper than smooth leather and every bit of tooling costs money. So, if you are on a tight budget and don't mind a relatively plain looking saddle, you could probably get it full roughout (skirts and everything) cheaper than one like you posted earlier with the basket weave tooling on the skirts.

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/
