And Stan, I really like the look of Fabtrons but can't seem to find one with SQHB, which seems like what I will need for her angle.

Two photos one of Kate our quarter horse high wither and flat rear back The Fabtron is wide tree full quarter horse bars.
The second is a tucker endurance with western skirt also wide tree full bars. The tucker is on the horse at the bottom of my photo, My present riding horse and also a 6 year old quarter/tb it also fits. All our horses are high wither. I also use a contured saddle pad which fits over the wither without placing pressure. Did you get the templets they really do help.

Good luck with your search.

I also have a Fabtron, it fits every horse I have ever tried it on! Amazing!

It is the semi-QH bars, as you want, but unfortunately has a horn. However, I spoke with the folks at Fabtron and they will build me a saddle without a horn on the tree I want!!

Call or e-mail them and see what they will do. BTW, my saddle costs under $500 new!

Here is my saddle:
14" 15" 16" Fabtron Roughout Seat Cordura Saddle 7102

And here it is on my Rocky Mountain horse, the only saddle I have found to fit him! I plan to have Fabtron make me one without the horn as soon as I get a few extra $$

You are welcome Sunny!

I really, really like this saddle, and it only weights 19 lbs so is easy to lift. The cordura fenders are great, no break in time required!

15" 16" Big Horn Center Fire Endurance Saddle 117 120

New big horn, 15 inch semi QH,,,,, how far are you from Yellow hammer ride area ? See if you can get ahold of the Ride manager and or AERC HQ and see if they can hook you up with a mentor, probably someone can help you get going. AERC mentor program exists just for this situation.

Joe, that's the saddle I have been looking at.

I am a couple hours from the park but that's the ride I plan to go to in October.
There actually is a woman around her who rides endurance (actually boarded at our barn while she was getting her fence put up) and she has been giving me some info.
