    A wide tree may make it sit too low on the withers. CircleY did not have a saddle taht would fit my gaited horse, their words not mine.
    If you have the money a Steele is what I ended up with after I took a big loss on my 1700.00 CircleY . It's a fantastic saddle

    We must remember though that every horse is an individual. I was amazed as just this weekend I purchased a full quarter bar show saddle (used) for my QH palomino gelding. It fits him ok, but on Monday we went to ride in a parade and I took my Rocky gelding. Got to the the parade site opened the trailer and lo and behold my gaited saddle didn't make it into the trailer, but the show saddle for my QH was there. We set it on him and it fit! I was amazed since it fit better than a lot of the gaited saddles I have had over the years and he gaited beautifully in it.

    Steele has long been a good company to do business with.

    One thing they have going for them is a "trial" program. You can pick the style, size, etc. that you like and they will send you a saddle on a trial basis. It will be used (sometimes well used) and it may not be exactly what you want but you can ride it and not have to worry about "dings" or doing other things that would make an "on approval" saddle impossible to return. If it works then they'll make you one. If it doesn't then they'll send you something else. You can keep trying 'till you get right!!!

    Steele also has a well earned reputation for quality (construction, materials, etc.). They are as good as it gets for commercially made saddles.

    AMTS is another good saddle company & not as pricey as a Steele. I have had saddle fit issues with my RMH since I got her....only one of the five saddles I own fit her & I'm uncomfortable in it. Did alot of research and settled on AMTS (Alleghany Mountain Trail Saddles) as a good quality, reasonably priced custom saddle. Several styles with multiple options for around $1000.
