Why not? It is made specifically for barrel racing.

Looks to be a low-end but decent quality saddle. Is that your horse in the photos? I'm trying to get a good look at the fit.

Aly Greeneyez - it's a barrel saddle, you can tell by the deep seat and long horn.

Don't see why it shouldn't be used for "Barrelling"....Whatever that is.

Anyway, it seems decent to me. Not the best but not bad. ;D I'll leave bubba to the fit, due to my blindness when it comes to pictures and/or detail. ;D

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
