As M. A. Steinberger said, a racing saddle will allow a horse to go fastest. This is less about the weight than it is about balance. As she pointed out, having the riders weight directly over the withers provides the least amount of interference with the horses movement. Weight is an issue because the horse will tire more quickly with more weight and thus slow down.
So, the horse with the most balanced rider will outrun an equally fast horse with a poor rider, almost regardless of saddle. Of course, when were talking about top tier horse racing, the jockeys are more equally skilled (athletically) than the horses. Strategy (and luck) starts to matter most.
So, if a lightweight saddle that puts the rider over the withers helps a horse run its fastest, why do barrel racers use western saddles? (Keep in mind that a barrel racing saddle is a completely different animal from a roping saddle even if they look superficially similar.) Aside from tradition, the main answer is the turns. If you watch barrel racers, youll see that they do stand up and lean forward on the straightaways, but they have to sit down to make those incredibly tight turns (and many use the horn for balance as well). I dont think any barrel racer could run a pattern at their speediest time with no saddle.Product Code-ART_6175_56511
