Honestly, there is no way to tell. You have to have the saddle on the horse to know if its going to work or not.

You can't always go strictly off the gullet size or the bars.

Every saddle will have a slightly different "fit" and every horse is different.

There is no way to predict what saddle WILL fit your horse; you may have a good guess but you'll never know until you try it on.

Also, the saddle may fit when the horse is toned and in-shape but it may not fit when the horse is carrying extra pounds. That makes a difference too.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

I tried on a billy cook saddle and it fit my horse well besides the skirt being a bit long( she needs a round skirt but they are hard to find in most saddles) and so I found a lynn mckenzie billy cook saddle..both were FQHB...well the lynn one was too tight even thought it was a 7" gullet fqhb.....just shows you must ty on every saddle before hand. I was positive it was gonna fit...not even close. Pinched the living crap out of her.
