Barrel Saddles

Recommended Posts

Hi! I don't know if there is already a topic about this, so if there is sorry about that. I currently ride in a Corriente (full bars, 7 inch gullet) barrel saddle, which is very comfortable. I've had it for about two years. The only problem is that it's about thirty pounds, so it's pretty heavy. It's a little wide in the shoulders, so I use a saddle pad with inserts in the shoulders for the horse I usually run. The last time I was at a clinic, the clinician commented that the mare was pretty stiff. I don't know if it has to do with the saddle, but it could be a factor. The thought of getting a new saddle/having a saddle fitted has been in the back of my mind for awhile. The mare I usually ride a quarter horse and built like one, but not as stocky as they tend to be. So, my question is, what is your preferred barrel saddle/experiences with different saddles? Also, how do you feel about treeless vs tree? Thanks!
