I bought a Team Roper saddle as a Christmas present in December. I heard a lot of great reviews about Corriente saddles and decided to invest my money in one. I will say this is by far one of the BEST investments I have ever made. The saddle is super comfortable and not only fits me, but pretty much every horse I put it on.

The main purpose of a barrel saddle is to be light and to keep the rider firmly in the saddle. You can also ride from barrel saddles, but you cannot rope out of them. The horn is not strong enough and will break if you try to rappel or pull it out.
Designed for versatility and comfort in classic cowboy style, the Ranch Cutter is a saddle you can ride all day. With a horn strong enough for rappelling and a slim, comfortable seat, the Ranch Cutter is perfect in the arena or at home on the ranch.
It has a wooden post horn built in as an integral part of the fork. It’s not uncommon to see saddles marked “Wade” apparently sporting metal horns. You can even buy horns, usually aluminum, called “wade horns” that are big enough to look like a wooden post horn.
The saddle is handcrafted with the quality features that we demand for all our saddles. Many of our customers also combine ropes with the same saddle. The horn is big enough to dawdle on and the low fit works well for horses with broad backs.
Our saddles are individually made on our own custom trees in our shop in Alba, Texas. Not only that, they’re made by the original man himself, Dale Martin. No production lines, just good old leatherwork.
A Barrel Racing saddle positions the rider so that they are able to “sit low” and “step out” through fast, tight corners with their legs slightly forward. A running racing saddle also has a smaller saddle horn that serves to hold the rider’s body in place during turns.
BTR. BTR is an ingenious saddle designed to give the rider unlimited security. With streamlined front fenders that move freely and a flatter seat, riders can quickly transition from drop to acceleration. The sill and horn are designed to hold position without interference.
