Who out there has a Corriente Saddle (Anthony, New Mexico) and are you happy with it? If not, why not? If so, what do you really like about it?
Smrobs, if you read this, I know you got one a while back. How's it working out for you and your horses?
I am not a wealthy person and can't afford a really top saddle, however, I do not want to waste money on junk either because I am rather choosy and will not be happy with something junky. I really don't like most used saddles for the same reason- I take care of my stuff and I don't want to buy someone else's neglected/abused tack. I would rather spend money on a new one and baby it. :lol:
In other words, I have caviar taste with a beer budget. I have been thinking of getting a Corriente, but before I contact the company and get serious, I want to do some research first.
My last two saddles came from Rider's Choice on eBay. Their top-of-the line versions (which are about the same price range and the Corrientes I believe). The first one I LOVED, and still love. I loved it so much I ordered another one just like it. The second one looks like it was put together by an amateur and it doesn't even fit my horses the same. Ugh!
I would like to sell a couple of the saddles that I really don't use and get a nice one in the $1000 (or less price) range.
What do you think?
PS. I am pretty sure I want a Wade tree.
Everyone who posted about them here was happy with Corriente. smrobs, iride, and I can think of another 1-2 people.
That's what I thought the general consensus was. But then, I start reading around the internet and found a person or two who had trouble with the trees. I don't rope or anything, I just want a good trail saddle. But I want something I won't be disappointed with.
One of our local saddle makers here highly recommends them as a great value for the money.
I am still loving mine and I likely will continue to go with Corriente for my future saddle needs as well until the time comes when I need a draft saddle, which they don't make.
I have noticed a couple of aesthetic things about mine that show it was not an overly expensive saddle, but nothing that compromises it's comfort or functionality.
I rode mine for ~ a year then sold it for what I paid for it. The reason I sold it had nothing to do with the quality or comfort of the saddle but it didn't fit the new horse I had just gotten.
For the money it's a pretty good deal.
Thanks guys! :mrgreen:
