I really like the Johnny Ruff saddle with the Narrow twist......If you google him ,he has great reviews. One of those small custom makers it looks like.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

I have a no brand (none that I could find) 17" saddle that was used... Once, or twice. Not sure if it fits into the show quality type, and may be a bit lighter. Definitely not narrow, was used on a stocky qh with higher withers. I see you are in Arizona, I'm not sure what the shipping cost. I am asking 250 for it. It's a decent saddle, padded seat, comfy. (Way too big for me, it came with a horse I was given to find a home for after she threw her owner... I think he just fell off since there was nothing wrong with her either. In fact, she's now a lesson horse for kids just starting, go figure) let me know if you are interested and I can give more pictures. Saddle pad comes with it, as well.

Oooooooo!!!! I really like it! It's perfect because it's not too plain (the basket weave tooling matches my headstall), but it's not super fancy. The color is really close to my headstall, too. Can you do me a favor and measure the gullet (concho to concho)?

Sorry, the pm thing isn't working.

The gullet is 7" and is 5 1/2" tall, saddle is 29" long. Gullet may be slightly narrower, as is a rough estimate with the leather, saddle fluff and all, but is definitely no narrower than 6 1/2, no wider than 7 (fairly standard for full qh bars). I have a picture from the front end, if you would would like I can take a picture with ruler (I only had my phone on me, and less light than my phone likes to take pictures with).

And it decided to go sideways... *sigh*. It is/was a bit dusty from sitting around.

That definitely looks wider than the Circle Y I tried on him. The bars appear to flare out more, which is good, because down toward the bottom of the bars was what was digging into his shoulders.

I think I found my saddle, guys!!!
