Why No Horn?

I think this is probably a dumb question, but I am wondering why endurance saddles typically do not have a horn on them. I'm guessing the reason has something to do with function, but not sure.

I'd appreciate getting educated about this!

Thanks.

Probably because a horn is typically used for ranch work... what good would it be (in the exception of hanging things on it) for an endurance trail ride?

It's kind of a mult-facited answer.
1. Most endurance riders aren't roping anything.
2. It gets in the way and is a potential hazard while riding through tricky terrain.
3. It is unnessecary weight. And weight is a big thing in this sport. Ounces matter.

It is made for roping/working/hauling cows. What you decide to do with it is your business.

That's what a monkey grip is for...and with the grip, no chance of gouging yourself in the gut over rough terrain.

Reminds me of when I put my significant other on my horse for the first time (his first time on a horse ever). Just happened to be an English saddle, and his exact words were :

"Where's the oh **** handle?"

What if you jumped over something and landed a bit too far forward? No thank you!
