I use a barrel racing saddle pretty much like ^^^^^that one for western riding and I don't even barrelrace & it's comfy. I don't trail ride in it though, just school western in it. Reason I bought it - because a barrel saddle is light & I have a tall horse. My silver show saddle is a monster & weighs probably 70lbs. Anyways the one you are looking at is a nice saddle in my opinion & looks light, I will trade it for my barrel saddle. I dunno though, might be just me, but I always get the proper equipment for the job, so if I were barrel racing, I'd buy a barrel saddle.
