Hi Dan, I have a Suffolk Punch, Clydesdale x. When I started out with her I started with an ordinary snaffle, she quickly realized that if she opened her mouth wide enough and turned her head just so, she could pull it through her mouth. So I now use an eggbut snaffle which is excellent. I had to sell my saddle because it didn't fit my Phoenix. I bought an Abetta synthetic western saddle with a draft tree (9 inch gullet) which fits my wide girl really well. It was a bit of a gamble, I live in New Zealand and had to import the saddle from the US so it would have been a bitch to return it had it been wrong, but it is great.
