Western Barrel Racing Saddle


Barrel Racing Saddles are specifically designed to enhance performance and provide security for riders during high-speed maneuvers.

Deep Seat: A deep seat helps riders stay securely in place, especially during sharp turns and sudden stops. This provides added stability and confidence while riding.

Tall Horn: The tall and sturdy horn offers a reliable grip, allowing the rider to maintain balance and control throughout the race.

High Cantle: The high cantle supports the rider’s back, preventing them from sliding backward during intense movements.

Lightweight Design: Barrel racing saddles are typically lighter than other Western saddles to facilitate quicker movements and better agility.

Compact Size: These saddles have shorter skirts and a more compact design to reduce weight and improve the horse’s flexibility and speed.

Forward-Hung Stirrups: The stirrups are hung forward to help the rider keep their legs in the correct position, aiding in balance and control.
