I ride in a Abetta Trail saddle, it is a older Navajo pattern and is really cool looking. (In my opinion) :) I use a sheepskin seat cover with it and I just bought some endurance stirrups. The combination it soooooo comfy for the 30 tough miles a day that I usually average. My horse likes it to because it is so light weight.

My primary focus is barrel racing, and I don't have endless money for saddles, so I ride all the time in my barrel racing saddle. It's quite comfy, though. Its a Smith Brothers by Circle Y.

(It looks rather small on my beefcake of a barrel horse, but it is a 15". I like lots of room.)

I like that it is lightweight and has a deep seat. And it pretty much fits most horses I put it on.

I like for barrels that it keeps my feet slightly forward .... but I don't like that when I use it for regular riding or western pleasure that it keeps my feet slightly forward (more difficult to achieve that heel-hip-ear posture for showing events), but I only show locally so it's not a big deal.




Next year (right around the corner!) I'm going to get me a Lisa Lockhart Flex Tree (wide). I feel like it will free up Red's shoulders a bit more ^^^ (I do have my saddle a bit too far forward in the picture above).

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Wow. I've been out of the barrel racing game so long now I don't even recognize that name. Lisa Lockhart. You've got a gorgeous horse:)

Barnsby Cutback for meeeeeeee

It's new to me and I'm still adjusting to it, but it's a sweet little saddle.


This is not my saddle pictured, but the same model as my saddle. (Click)

Just a caution - it sounds like you're over riding. An endurance horse should be conditioned at 20-30 miles a week total.
