Barrel Racing: It’s not just running fast
What do you think of when you hear “Pozzi Barrel Saddle Sale?”
When it comes to barrel racing, it’s not just about the training and work that goes into the speed sport. Like all athletes, you monitor what your horse eats, drinks, and anything else that goes into its system.
And just like top athletes, to be good at a sport, you also need the proper equipment.
From whatever kind of leg protection you choose to your horse’s bit, each item of tack is carefully selected to get the most out of each performance. And when it comes to barrel racing saddles, there’s no better place to shop than the Pozzi Barrel Saddle Sale.
What’s the big deal with barrel saddles?
Barrel racing requires the riders to be able to have a deep seat and position the legs slightly forward. It’ll have a smaller horn to make room for the rider changing his or her positions with every fast turn.
He or she will typically lean into it to stay stable during the quick turns. Barrel saddles are typically lighter and smaller so top speed is easier to achieve.
As always, it’s also best to make sure the saddle fits your horse, so be sure to not only check out the Pozzi Barrel Saddle Sale but also get in touch with a good saddle fitter.
Are barrel saddles good for any other kind of riding?
Of course they are! People trail ride in these saddles daily, and they’re used for many other things than barrel racing.
Trail riding has been popular with these style western saddles because of the way they tend to hold their riders in, especially when riding up and down steep hills.
Though there may be an issue if you ever choose to ride with saddle bags, there are ways around that.
And when it comes to the brands of barrel saddles out there, it’s best to look out for the Pozzi Barrel Saddles.

Why the Pozzi Barrel Saddle instead of others?
The Pozzi Saddle was designed by two-time World Barrel Racing Champion Brittany Pozzi with the intent to ride two-handed anywhere in the pattern and feel secure due to a higher cantle.
She also made the swells high enough to stabilize her while not interfering with her legs.
And to top it off, these saddles offer just as much in the looks department as some western saddles seen in the main show rings. Because of this, the Pozzi Barrel Saddle Sale isn’t one you’ll want to miss.

It still has the beautiful whirlwind tooling, but it won’t outshine you and your horse’s performance. With a price at less than $5000 it comes as one that’s hard to beat.
Be sure to snag it at the Pozzi Barrel Saddle Sale.
These are only three options from the Pozzi Barrel Saddle Sale happening now. There are many styles, colors, sizes, and price points to choose from. It helps to know exactly what the saddle is being used for.
For example, it may not be in your best interest to buy a saddle with Swarovski Crystals adorning it if you’re only going to use it as a trail riding saddle.
Also remember to keep you and your horse’s measurements in mind when ordering a saddle of any kind from an online store.
It’s definitely helpful to see if the shop has a return policy if, for whatever reason, the saddle doesn’t fit you or your horse properly.
That’s why it’s always important to not only know your measurements, but to get an evaluation by a trained saddle fitter.

My goodness, I noted that both the 13″ to 17″ Double J Pozzi Pro Barrel Racer SBP664 and 13″ to 17″ Double J Pozzi Pro Barrel Racer SBP710 have the cantle, jockey abd skirt equipped with with alternating Jet Hematite Swarovski Crystals and Antique Copper Dots! Though beautiful, I would constantly worry about theft! I prefer the simplicitiy of the 13″ to 17″ Double J Pozzi Pro Barrel Racer SBP730.
I observe (interestingly) that each of the 3 saddles weigh about 28lbs, so i guess the saddles with crystals are not overtly heavy due to the crystals.
Hi Ceci. Hmmm.. I’ve never heard of anyone worrying about they’re saddles being stolen – despite these saddles being gorgeous and high-end. I can’t blame you though. These saddles run between $5,000 and $6,000 at least. I’d say, if you’re really concerned, just lock them away as you would any of your other valuables. Good choice as far as the Pozzi Barrel Racer SBP730. But it’s still costly, coming in at $4,127.75.
It’s not specifically the crystals that make a saddle heavy. Quite a few factors contribute to the weight of the saddle. For starters, some western riding disciplines require a lighter weight saddle. A couple of things that contribute to a saddle being heavy are the type of tree used as well as how long the skirt on the saddle is.
The most important thing is that you buy the correct saddle based on your discipline.
So, if you want to trail ride, by a pleasure or trail saddle. If you’re into barrel racing, buy a barrel racing saddle. If you’re into team roping, buy a roping saddle. I hope this helps. Please stop by again.
I hope this is
Now this is a beautiful saddle and looks pretty similar to what my mother-in-law used for her barrel racing. I have not heard of the Circle Y brand. Is it just as good to purchase a saddle online as it is to go into a western shop so you can get a feel for it? It is like picking out a pair of shoes? I mean I would never order a pair of shoes online because they are have very different fits.
Hi Leahrae. Thanks for your question. Yes, Circle Y is a well-respected brand when it comes to Western saddles. I understand your sentiments. I don’t know if it’s better to go live to buy a saddle online or in a Western shop. There are pros and cons to both. I guess it depends on the reputation of the online store you buy it from. The good news is that the Horse Saddle Shop allows you a 2-week money back guarantee. They also have a live chat feature which is 24/7 and a toll free number. So you have absolutely nothing to lose!
This is the saddle my mother-in-law uses. She is a professional barrel racer and does quite well. I am curious, when I go for a leisurely ride when we are visiting, these are the saddles she has. I would like to surprise with my own. What would be most economical and best for occasional rides?
Hi Leahrae. I think the best saddle to use when going for leisurely rides is a trail saddle. They are economically priced – depending on the brand and the type of materials used. Remember, the higher quality the saddle, the longer the saddle will last. But more importantly, the higher the quality saddle, the more comfortably it will fit your horse. So always keep uppermost in your mind the horse’s comfort.
In addition, you can purchase high-quality, used saddles – which is what I recommend you purchase.
That being said, Circle Y is an excellent brand. It’s known for making saddles with the highest quality material. Their used saddle trade-in program and money-back guarantee, if purchased through The Horse Saddle Shop, is second to none. Please consider purchasing a used Circle Y Trail Saddle.
