Specialized Western Saddles
Over the past century, many specialized saddles have appeared directly for specific purposes. Unfortunately, such seats have appeared today among amateurs, although such products are categorically not suitable for use in this sector.
This saddle, briefly called Roping, is specialized for the rodeo. It is manufactured in large saddle workshops in the United States in large quantities and is distributed in the market. The saddle refers to one type of standard cowboy saddle. The roping saddle, equipped with a high heavy front bow and a big horn in its former expression, additionally has a seat rising towards the front bow. It certainly makes sense when working with a lasso while grazing livestock, helps the rider to sit in the saddle while pulling on the lasso. However, during normal driving, such a seat presses the rider to the rear bow so that the rider’s correct impact becomes impossible due to the equilibrium position of the rider.
Besides, Roping saddles have a so-called double girth – just ahead and far behind the saddle, which is necessary when working with a lasso. For the amateur riding area, a double cinch is not recommended, since it leads to the rubbing of the front legs and may cause the appearance of abrasions. Secondly, many amateurs unknowingly using a double girth fasten the front strap, because they are used to doing so with English saddles.
But then it may happen that with an extended trot or a gallop the seat will continuously jump from behind.
