can't go wrong with a Corriente saddle :) I have two, one is a roper, the other a barrel saddle. They both came directly from Corriente both very reasonable and extremely comfortable!

I wouldn't mind a plain saddle all so that would be fine with me!

Dodger, how much did you pay for your barrel saddle if you don't mind me asking?

Our corriente barrel saddle
Full rough out with just barbwire border. Youth 14" seat and adult fenders. It's just starting to get worn and dirty, almost the look we like ;). I'm sure by next summer it'll have that warm color and feel that makes rough out so awesome.

I like that :) I like a simple saddle with just little tool. I'm torn between a colored seat or a plain brown because I'd hate to have a turquoise seat but change my horse's color to red lol. But then again, turquoise looks great on most horses.

Did you order your's custom? How much did it turn out to be if you don't mind me asking?

Does anyone want to post pictures of their Corriente and the price? I'm trying to get an idea of how much I'll be paying and what it's going to look like :)

Well, it's not a barrel saddle...but I'll go ahead and post mine.

It cost $687 and was delivered 28 days after I put in the order.

(back when it was fresh out of the box)



And now


Also, I've got pictures of my Dad's. His is a little different than mine (square skirt and a different rigging). His was $685.

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/

That's a little steeper than I thought it would be, $550 maaaybe $600 is my max. Maybe the barrel saddles would be a little less, less material :) lol but those are nice saddles!

Ours was $560 and maybe some change. Worth every penny and have even been offered more.

Yes we ordered it custom for our daughter who is very tall, but also very slim. Hence the adult fenders on a youth saddle.

Everyone that's seen it has liked it. It's really the perfect saddle for her. And a corriente roping saddle is in her future....

You just can't beat that look and feel of worn in rough out. My favorite saddle ever is rough out and is just perfect after 40yrs or so.

Yeah, their barrel saddles are much cheaper because the trees are not as heavy duty and there isn't quite as much leather there.

I guess the whole reason for me posting my pics was just to show the quality (which is amazing for the price).
