    Barrel saddles are made to be pretty light. They have a tall skinny horn so it is easy to hold onto when you go around the barrels.
    Roping saddles I think are quite heavy, and they have very thick and strong horns, so that the horse doesn't pop off when you hold a half.
    There is another saddle I own, but I am not sure what type it is. It is super light and the horn is a nice size, not too skinny and not too thick either.
    Those are the only ones I can describe.

    I have heard that roping saddles are pretty good, my barrel saddle is a great all-around saddle for trail rides and for fun jumping.
    The other saddle I have is also great.
    The cantles are pretty nice - none are too small nor too large.
    That is kind of the best I can explain.
