Thanks for the tips everyone! I've been keeping my eyes open on ebay and other sites like it. I have seen several saddles that were my size, so I know they are out there, just few and far between!
This little beauty popped up on my FB page today and thought it was intriguing. I always liked the simplicity of the McClellen, but never found any of quality that would actually fit my arab's wide shoulders!
Apparently this is totally customizable as far as gullet/bars/seat size/length. With the right padding, I kind of think this would be awesome.
I have always been interested in getting more heavily into mounted archery, and of course, I want to try out endurance so this might be a really cool saddle to do that. I don't really plan to show and my average day is spent trail riding, so I am very excited to learn more about this saddle. There isn't much info so far, but from what I am reading, it sounds like the saddle would be <$700 or so.
What do you guys think?
I am very proud of this saddle design, it is a combination of a 13th century Mongolian, A McClellan and a modern endurance saddle. It is simple and bare bones with military function in mind.

The tree is made of wood covered in fiberglass. The tree comes with a 5 year warrenty from the manufacture and it is also availible with Kevlar rather than fiberglass with a life time warrenty. This model is painted with a hard hammered copper finish
The tree takes 3 to 6 weeks to make and the finishing os the saddle takes less than a couple of days for the base models like you see here.
The tree as I said was designed on a computer with the Mongolian, McClellan and western endurance tree used to get the specks. It is the only one of it's kind I promise you.
I order the trees custom, it should be no problem at all fitting any of the draft breeds
