Barrel Saddles vs All-Rounds

Although the highlight of the Double J barrel saddle sale is the lightweight Pozzi Pro Barrel Racer with its high swells and eye-catching design, there are a couple of all-rounders that are well worth a look, especially if barrel racing is only one aspect of your riding.

The Double J All-Round weighs a bit more than the Pozzi Pro but retains the same level of craftsmanship and durability. Suitable for all types of riding, from barrel racing to ranch work, the All-Round has a strong, stout horn, a sturdy tree, and a nice sized pocket that will keep you secure during speed events.

The increased weight and shallower pocket mean the All-Round is not as suited to barrel racing as the Pozzi Pro or the Elite Pro, but it’s still a good option for those still experimenting with barrel racing and who want to keep their options open.

Like the Pozzi Pro and Elite Pro, the All-Round is easily adjustable and can be fitted to a wide range of horses, making it even more versatile.

Finding the Perfect Fit

Double J Saddlery has put considerable effort into creating saddles that allow the horse to move freely while keeping the rider secure in the saddle. After all, the only time you’re going to get the best out of your horse is when he’s comfortable. An ill-fitting saddle can destroy your chances of a fast time and potentially cause your horse pain and discomfort.

Many barrel racers observe atrophy behind their horses’ shoulders – a problem that is almost entirely due to an ill-fitting saddle. A horse that repeatedly experiences pain when reaching out to lengthen their stride will, inevitably, shorten that stride or hollow out their backs, causing the shoulders to either drop or rotate forward.

Double J saddles are designed to alleviate that discomfort with their deep shoulder pockets which ensure that the front of the saddle doesn’t interfere with the backward movement of the horse’s shoulder or scapula. The cutaway skirts of the barrel saddles also allow for a closer fit, giving your horse more freedom of movement.

Conclusion

In conclusion, Double J barrel saddles are the perfect opportunity to get an eye-catching, durable saddle that will enhance your performance without necessarily breaking the bank – especially if you catch a great sale.
