Good saddle suggestion for my gelding? :)

I have a 16yr old gelding that I'm about to get! What western saddle/saddle pad would work/fit best for him? I plan on doing trail and everyday riding fun and maybe learning some barrels. Thanks!

I swear by Billy Royal for any kind of western saddle...However a typical trail saddle and a barrel racing saddle are two different designs...

If you are serious about learning about barrel racing, I would just find a typical barrel racing saddle, a older Circle Y will work nice, and use it for trail and barrel racing.
