Why can't these things be world wide standard - same with clothes....geesh

Not sure what the gullet measures..I sent them a whither trace and they told me it would fit. I was buying a clearance saddle though. If you order one from them that is not a clearance they will customize it off a whither trace of your horse. Pretty cool

On the seat size, yes what you say is correct. I think I purchased one going off of Western sizes though, so it is too small. I figured it out too late to send it back though. I am waiting to have some money ( yeah right ;) and I figured I would buy one the size I needed and sell the one I have...

I might have to go with the wither trace, but I'm going to be waiting awhile. He's only 2 turning 3 in early spring.

I don't have one yet but I'm saving up for one. I'm planning on getting a halfbreed though, which has a similar seat to a tradition stock, but has a swinging fender and no flocking.

I like the look of the ones from James Saddlery (QLD, AU). The cheaper ones are affordable, but they have stirrup bars and cinch options.

If any Aussies have advice on cheapish halfbreeds I'd be happy to hear it.
