Question What different types of western saddles do for you

Hey guys, I am trying to find a western saddle right now but I can't decide on one. I don't do any hard core showing or anything, but it is quite possible that I'll be doing games and pleasure in the next 2 years (gaming more likely). I was seriously considering getting a barrel saddle for ring work (pretty much all games training) and trail riding, but I heard that they can make your back sore because they don't really do anything good for your equitation. For that reason, I was considering a trail saddle because they look like they have a fairly deep seat. I was wondering what each kind of saddle (barrel, reining, pleasure) really does for you (equitation wise, comfort wise,etc). Btw, if I do show pleasure I will defenitly not be showing in a barrel saddle if I get one, I'll probably get a used pleasure saddle and put some silver on it. Thank you!

I think if you can find a nice looking pleasure saddle with at least a 4" cantle you could do either WP or barrel racing.
