I've never heard that the seat needs to be smaller to race in..
I ride a 16" with about an inch of room to move around in. But, I've tried a 15" and it's just too small, there isn't enough room for my body to move with my horse.
It isn't the seat that needs to be snug, you just need the higher cantle and bigger swells (how the saddles are made). If you have a good seat, I've seen barrels run bareback with a placing time.
But..if you really want the saddle more snug, get the cushion that some people buy for trails. It'll add between half an inch to an inch, making the seat smaller.
