So I'm in the market for a new saddle for Miss Lacey since it has become apparent that she decided that this would be a great time for her to get even wider than she already was... >.<
I've put ads in different places trying to find a saddle that'll fit her and I like some knowledge before I begin, you know? Especially since I may not be able to try this "new" saddle on her before I commit to it.
On the plus side, even if I end up trading my current saddle (that I desperately don't want to get rid of, but it's looking like I might have to use it as a bargaining tool) for a saddle that ends up not fitting, in about a month Lacey and I will be at camp where we will have access to 13 saddles that we can try and if one fits her, the owners will trade us our saddle for the one that fits.
But I'd still like to know what brands/styles to look for.
Basically we need a 7 inch gullet, QH bars (semiQH is a little narrow and QH is a little too angled..), and it needs to be pretty flat side to side in the back.
Her current saddle fits her perfectly, except for side to side over her back, it's too narrow and not flat enough there. I've found saddles that fit her through the back but usually they seem to expect her to be wither-less, however she has some lovely withers that make those saddles a no go and it seems like the ones that fit her in front, don't fit in back...
So are there any styles of saddle/brands that are pretty sure to fit my qualifications? We appreciate it!
