Need a saddle for my fat draft cross. Help?
Hope this is ok to post here. I posted in the classifieds too but thought other draft owners might be able to help. I just bought a draft cross pony and I'm having the hardest time finding an English saddle that will fit her that I can afford. I didn't think when I bought her that it would be this hard or honestly I might have reconsidered getting her! Her previous owners were riding her in a regular horse size western saddle with FQHB so I didn't realize that she would require a draft size English saddle. But after taking a wither tracing, it would appear that she needs at least an 8.5" gullet, thus landing me in draft tack territory. I am having the hardest time finding anything I can afford right now that will fit her and me! So if anyone can help me find a 17-18" seat English saddle, any kind, with an 8.5-9" gullet, under $250, you will be my hero!
