Good saddle for the price? Also how to measure gullet size?

Dakota barrel saddle, almost brand new, but fenders have been replaced with older broken in fenders (which I'm happy with) it will fit me good, but still unsure about Hustler as I can't measure him until he's home on Saturday. It has a 7 inch gullet. She's asking $350. Seem good? What do you think about Dakotas? Also, how do you measure what size gullet your horse need without a wither tracing? Thanks everyone. I'll post pictures below.

Without a wither tracing it is hard to measure, but if you post a couple of pics of your Horse, I may be able to make an educated guess if that Saddle will fit, have gotten pretty good at it over the years

I have seen dozens of Dakota used at a nearby Barrel Racing club, very decent saddle for the price.

350.00 for a used one is fair.

I've always used an old wire hanger to measure my horses.

Google horsesaddleshop who has some downloadable templates. Print all three out, transfer to cardboard then cut them out. One half will be for the horse and the other for the saddle. The sizes are posted with each one.
