Looking for feedback on Triple Creek saddles. I came across them and like a couple of models they have. Herman Oak leather and Steele tree all sounds good, but the price has me raising an eyebrow. $1300 for a brand new semi-custom saddle + bridle and breastcollar has me questioning if these are really good saddles?

I bought a new one in 2012 and I worked pretty good for my growing cult at the time but by the time he was done growing around 8 years old it was too narrow for him and creating white marks. I personally really liked it because it was so good quality and it had a narrow twist so it didn't hurt my hips and the stirrups were neither hung too far forward or too far back they kept you straight.

I had one I built in 2009. LOVED it and regret selling it. Now, that being said... their customer service has gone down hill and I wouldn't buy another from them.

 I had one that I had bought off Facebook hoping it would fit one of my horses and it was super tight along the back.  There was plenty of room in the shoulder but right under the fenders really pinched.  Neither of the mares I tried it on were all that wide, so I was suprised it was such a terrible fit.  I'm not sure if the wide tree would have worked, but I was never even able to ride in the one I had.  Beautiful saddle though and seemed really well made.

I have one that I am selling now only because it doesn't fit my hard-to-fit old man  (with high withers, no top line, almost sway back.) I love the quality of leather, and it seems over-all very nicely made.

That's too bad on the customer service.

I am looking for a saddle with pretty straight hung stirrups, but I also need a pretty wide tree.

I love my triplecreek! I found a new one, maybe used once or twice? Wider gullet and full bars! Absolutely love it!iI have won quite a bit of $$$ riding in it as well! I have had every expensive higher quality saddles(caldwell,martin,cactus etc and the triplecreek is by far the best for money and fit. It's Lightweight, durable I would suggest just getting the wider tree and gullet

I had one made in 2010 and I love it but it was closer to $2,000. Nothing crazy, black gator seat and not-blinged conchos. It has held up amazing especially since it’s the only saddle I have to ride in.

I love my Triple Creek, fits everything I put it on. I bought a new gelding in September last year and the girl said she had to have a saddle specially made for him but my triple creek fit him perfect. I rode in it when I tried him and that is when she told me because she was commenting on how well it fit. I had mine costum made with custom tooling and it was only $1,500. That was back in 2009 I believe.

I have custom ordered 2 the first I kept and love but it came 1/2 inch bigger in the seat than I ordered. The 2nd came and was beautiful said 15 as I ordered but measured 16 1/2 ridiculous they said since it was custom they would not take it back. POOR customer service. I took a big loss on it but I slid all over with the big seat. I would only buy used where I could measure or sit in it first. I have also heard of others that said the seats were either smaller or bigger than stamped, or something else did not come as custom ordered such as fenders being slick when roughout was ordered and it was a big fight to get them to fix as ordered!
