Can't find a correct saddle size SQHB or FQHB?

I have been through a million saddles trying to find something that fits my poor horse. I have tried a couple semis and they dig into her shoulders and all the fulls I have tried touch her withers and spine. Is there such a thing as a normal quarter bar? Or is there any other solutions to his. My mare is a quarter horse with pretty good conformation except having high withers but she has wider shoulders

Yes, there is a Reg. QH Bar 6.75" Gullet at an average of 89 degree angle, they are a little harder to find.

Most people now make a Semi-QH Bar 6.5" Gullet with about a 86 degree angle (some call it medium) and a Full-QH Bar 7" Gullet with about a 92 degree angle (some call it wide).

Many people are able to use an Arabian Tree on your type of Q-Horse, it is about 89 degree angle, 6.75 gullet and has extra flair in the leading edge of the bar to accommodate larger shoulders.

Synergist saddles also have a flare at the shoulder and you can usually find them used at good prices. I've got two and love them both. And I'll admit I'm a bit of a saddle hoarder...I have 10 or so saddles, and my Synergists are the ones I use most. They have a more traditional western style as well as the endurance and trail style. Something to take note of - For $199 Synergist will custom fit one of their used saddles to your horse... always a nice bonus if you buy online and the fit is a bit off. You won't be stuck trying to sell a saddle or having a large paperweight.
