When I was first looking to buy a saddle at the tack store by my house, a nice shop with only circle y/tucker/tex tan type saddles...not cheaper made saddles. The guy told me that the Tuckers would fit qh type horses as well? I haven't heard that they are only for gaited horses, I knew they made some for gaited but I haven't heard that all of them are for gaited horses. What I've seen from online dealers they haven't said they're all for gaited horses either....
But I could be wrong, and if I am that's probably my problem with the saddle.... Luckily I know somebody with gaited horses that was interested in buying my saddle...
@ toosexy4myspotz : I have already tried a contoured whither relief opening pad, I think it made it worse on my gelding...but it could be due to the felt material on the bottom of it. It's an esp classic equine barrel pad.
@ goneriding : I'm not sure what you mean by muttonwhithered... but here's my horses with out the saddle on
My mare I tried the saddle on first:
And I don't have any really good pictures of my gelding from the side...but here's him getting his prepurchase exam:
