    As far as saddles go, I trail ride in my barrel saddle all the time since I don't have a trail saddle anymore. I'm comfortable riding in mine and feel more secure with the high cantle. Helps keep me in place when going up/down hills.
    Thank you, That sounds great, I really want my horse to be an all around horse. She is spunky, but also gentle and loving. I Like the high cantle on a saddle too. I set on a new trail saddle that had high cantle and it felt great.

    Like any other type of saddle, stay away from new cheap barrel saddles in the $200 to $400 range. Cheap is what cheap does.

    You are much better off buying an older used saddle with a quality brand, that has been taken care of. Some of the brands I like are: Circle Y, Hereford, Tex Tan, Billy Cook, Martin
    That is what I want to do, I am going to a used tack sale this weekend. I want buy a great saddle just used.
