My Circle Y saddle fits my new horse Red *okay*. I'm not totally happy with it, but I just got married and just started a new job so I am trying to get my finances in order to get him a better fitting saddle.
He's a stocky boy. So it seems a little bit tight on his shoulders just by looking at it, and by the way he gets dry spots behind the shoulder after a sweaty ride.
I don't know for sure, as I tried to find my saddle online for the specifications. I bought it about 8 years ago from Smith Brothers. It's just a plain jane Circle Y but it's comfortable and I do really like it. I believe it is regular Quarter Horse bars (I'm kind of a dummy when it comes to saddle lingo). I will have to measure the gullet width to get an idea of where it is now.
I've heard about Lisa Lockhart's wide saddle line. http://saddledomain.com/Lisa-Lockhar...e-Y--1545.html
Are there any others?
I've really been wanting a Corriente saddle (which say they have a 7" gullet) but I'm worried that may be too narrow as well.
What about Flex Trees or Treeless? Again, I'm a dummy about those as I have never used them.
