I've run in a barrel saddle before and didn't feel much different. The seats still have the same general shape, the fender position is what is different. My position is exactly the same in a roper, a barrel, and a trail saddle. Soo..I'm not worried about that extra weight of my roping saddle compared to a barrel because my runs have been consistent in both on the same horse. Times have only been mayybe .25-.5 difference, and my roper got me the slightly better times.
