Well the Price is fair from what I can see, new that is probably a 750.00 saddle.

It does not look like a 7" Gullet the bars are usually a little flatter, looks more like a Semi-Qh 6.5" but pics can be deceiving

He has some wide shoulders, if that saddle was truly a 7" Gullet Full-QH bar I would say probably.

Without having a tape measure or template inside the saddle to show width it is hard to say, looking at the pics It looks like that Saddle has too steep of a bar to fit that Horse

Can you get seller to put a tape measure across the top of the bars in that saddle to see the measurement?

Yes, but the actual measurement is inside the leather and minus about 1/2" for fleece, etc.

Okay, I'm not sure if she'll be able to though. She runs a custom tack business so she's probably busy. I'll find a way to measure him tomorrow, or maybe see if my ropping saddle fits him and see how big it is.
