Barrel racing legend, Martha Josey & Ty Mitchell, have designed – from the tree up – this Ultimate Barrel Saddle to reflect a personal style and preferences to keep you correct, balanced, and in stride with your horse.
“The Avenger is a unique youth saddle, and is a super confidence builder. The correct saddle for your youth will help develop correct techniques. This saddle is designed for performance, speed, and agility. The Avenger lets the young rider focus on performance, not thinking about staying in the saddle. The center pocket seat helps you keep you in balance.” – Martha Josey
The Youth Avenger is built with slight modifications to provide the same fit of the 1179 Josey Ultimate Cash but sized for younger barrel racers. With a 1″ taller swell and 4 1/2″ cantle to hold the rider in correct position, keeps horn available, and allows you to stay in stride with the horse. We’ve punched this saddle up with a ranchy style – full rough out hardseat for “stick” with spot and buckstitch trim. The 3″ forward slanted horn helps to push down into your turn and pull up coming out of the turn and free-swing, forward hung stirrup leathers keeps your feet forward preventing the rider from being thrown forward and off balance. 3-Way Adjustable In-skirt rigging lets you choose which rigging position best suits your horse.
All Josey saddles can be custom ordered. These are all models you can choose from, and prices vary based on options you choose.
