    western saddle style variations?

    What are the different western saddle styles and what makes them different from each other?

    I see saddles for sale that are advertised as "barrel racing saddle" "roping saddle" "cutting saddle" ect....

    In what way are they different?

    I know the size I need, I just don't know what style would be best for me.

    Different Western Saddle Types

    Very basic, but a good overview.

    I'm not endorsing the shop, although they did fine by me with the bit I bought from them.

    that is an awesome link bsms

    Got my new saddle yesterday ---

    Went with a 16.5" roping saddle that had a nice deep seat pocket
    Nice simple and sturdy -- no tooling or engraving or frills

    Guy let me put it on his horse and try it out, I got up, turn his horse around, walked about 3 steps, and was like "yup, this is the one"


    Old one was a 16" buffalo custom either trail or pleasure saddle --- high cantle, and no seat pocket whatsoever -- made it really hard for me to get my legs on the horse or maintain balance
