Barrel saddle or trail saddle
I currently have a synthetic western saddle that came with one of my horses. I am now using it on a somewhat bigger one now and it fits him pretty good but, I am not sure it fits me to well. It does have some mileage on it but over all it is still in good condition.
Anyway, when ever I trot and especially canter on my buddy I find myself not too comfortable and bouncing around a good bit. I would consider myself a midlevel rider and realize that I am part of the problem. I was just wondering if a Barrel racing saddle may help me stay put more but, still be good enough to go on a good trail ride.
Any advice I can get is greatly appreciated. I mostly ride with my 6 year old daughter who rides english. She does some of the local shows right now and because of my "smack" talking ( all in fun ) to the other girls that board and ride at the stable she takes lessons at I have to do the "fun show". I am not sure that my current saddle is going to work with me or against me.
