For the barrel racer and the gymkhana rider, a quality barrel saddle can make a world of difference. These Western saddles designed for barrel racing feature deeper seats to keep the rider securely positioned through tight turns and quick movements. The fenders also swing more freely than those on traditional Western saddles, allowing the rider to move their legs to stay centered and balanced.
Barrel saddles also accommodate the athletic barrel horse with shorter skirts and forward-positioned cinch. These features allow your gaming horse to bend his body as needed and get close to the barrels, poles, and flags. Many equestrians also prefer lightweight barrel saddles with roughout seats and fenders for starting young horses.
We carry a selection of leather barrel racing saddles from trusted tack manufacturers including High Horse. These high-quality Western saddles are hand-made in Yoakum, Texas, and will withstand the rigors of competition, schooling, and conditioning rides. Our inventory of High Horse Western saddles also gives you peace of mind, by carrying a 10-year tree warranty and one-year workmanship warranty.
In addition to our new barrel saddles, we also carry a number of used barrel saddles on consignment.
