Nothing is worse than realizing you have bought a saddle that doesn’t fit you, or your horse’s, needs. Therefore, it is crucial that you get the best saddle possible, and the only way to make sure of this is to give it a try.
Double J Barrel Saddle Sale – Great Saddle Design
A great barrel saddle needs to reflect the rider who uses it. Horse riding is a deeply personal activity and every rider has their fantastic flair. Your barrel saddle is yours and your barrel saddle should tell the world who you are.
This isn’t an issue when purchasing a Double J barrel saddle. Each barrel saddle that is made by the skilled craftsmen at Double J has a personal touch to it.
The craftsmen at Double J believe that each product they make is a work of art; 100% unique. From the engravings on the cantle to the tooling pattern, it’s hard not to say that the Double J barrel saddles are the most exquisite saddles on the market! Now you can look as good as you ride!
However, many riders want to go a step further and further personalize their barrel saddles. Well, Double J can help with this too. The Double J barrel saddle makers take their customers’ requests to heart and will go the extra mile to personalize any barrel saddle to fit their devoted customers’ requests.
Double J Barrel Saddle Sale – High Quality Materials Used
A barrel saddle is only as strong as the materials that are used to make them. That’s why Double J saddles have been a leading saddle that has been used since 1991.
Double J barrel saddles use Herman Oak leather. Herman Oak leather is one of the strongest leathers that exist. Having durable leather on your barrel saddle is crucial.
Poor quality leather can break down easily which leaves you having to replace or buy features on your barrel saddle or a new barrel saddle entirely. Not only does this cost you money, but it will also cost you valuable time when having to adjust to a new barrel saddle.
To add on, Double J barrel saddles also have stainless steel features. With all the wear and tear that comes with barrel racing, the consequences can pile up on your saddle, leaving you looking tired and run down.
Stainless steel fixes this issue as it is easy to clean and control, allowing you to ride in a saddle that performs as good as it looks.

I loved these saddles. I mean, they just look quality. And, yeah, they cost a bit as well. But that I feel is totally worth it if they’re truly as solid as they sound.
I think what I enjoy the most about Double J is their philosophy of making saddles. As far as I can tell, they truly are paying the utmost attention to every saddle they make. Which is like 120% unlike the other cheap/no-name brands, like pretty much every saddle made in Mexico or Asia. Plus, I love those programs that they promote. I mean, the way I see it, they’re pretty much ideal to anyone ever trying the brand for the first time. And I bet return customers love them, too.
I will check out that sale. Cheers.

I wish I came across this article before Christmas as my niece is having riding lessons and takes them so seriously. If I could have bought her this saddle then I think I would have been the favourite uncle, with out a doubt 🙂
However, luckily for me it is her birthday soon, so I can still be the favourite uncle. I will let you know if I do get her this saddle for her birthday and what she thinks of it.
Thank you for sharing and keep up the great work.
All the best,

I love that the Double J brand offers trade ins, not is this really convenient but it also shows that they offer quality if they offer that service. I also love the try before you buy option, it gives enough time to use the demo saddle to see if it is a good fit.
These saddles look amazing, not just in quality but in comfort too. I love cross country riding and jumping, which saddle would you recommend out of these for my needs?
Hi Lynne. Thanks for your comments and your question. Barrel saddles are used for barrel racing, not jumping or cross country events. If you want to do cross country riding, I’d recommend an Arabian trail saddle. Have a look here https://shrsl.com/2q53d
