I don't get to try any of these on my horses, I just have to buy long distance and get a good enough deal to sell if they don't work. Right now I need something that will fit a variety. Alot of you guys are saying the best looking or best saddle is the Charmayne James... There are actually two there- the Cactus leopard and the Double J with the red inlay. Which were you referring to?
I'm leaning towards to CJ Cactus or the Triple Creek but on the cactus I would have to replace the fenders for (ideally) matching roughout because of that STUPID brand.

I can't help you out since I know nothing about any of those but just going off looks I like the Charmayne James saddle, looks comfy.
I do want to ad though, that Triple Creek saddle has a stingray seat, when I was having my saddle made I looked at that and my saddle maker said he would NEVER suggest using stingray, he said it is VERY uncomfortable.

The double J with the red ostrich inlays. Very cool!

Just one more friendly bump. I'd really like to hear from someone who knows something about the triple creeks.

Sorry, I havn't had a triple creek but I just thought I'd let you know that I have also been on a barrel saddle hunt, and found out that the cactus saddles have 7" gullets and a fairly wide angle, while the other ones are a more standard QH bar and narrower angle. So that might help you narrow it down, depending on how many wide or narrow horses you have.
Good luck! :)

How about a Rocking R, they get as good of a review as those other ones and less money

Rocking R Saddlery, Rocking R Saddle, Rocking R Saddles

Or a Lamb Saddle


May all your Trails be happy and safe ones
