    Does this saddle fit?

    Is this saddle too long for my Arabian?

    Not necessarily. Does it curve up a bit in the back? The skirt, I mean.

    How is the fit otherwise?

    I am just eyeballing the aproximate end of the tree, and whether or not that extends beyond the last rib that comes attached to the spine (where the weight bearing surface should cease)

    Yes, this saddle has a rounded skirt. It measures 30" long and does have a slight curve in the back. Most Arabian saddles are 24" or 26.5" long, but I thought that with the rounded skirt it might work.

    I don't know if it extends beyond the last rib, but I will check tomorrow. Thank you for that.

    It is the most beautiful hand-tooled custom saddle and seems to fit fine everywhere else.

    Here's a close-up
