| || | Yeah, that's why I wanted some opinions on the different saddles. I think that's why I like Schleese so much, I used it a tiny Arab pony and my tank of a mutt. I also saw a Classic Saddlery and liked how wide the channel was and the tree wasn't curved too high or too low (which sometimes Schleese can...) If you have any information on the saddles that would be awesome!

Keep in mind that an adjustable gullet will not change any of these aspects of saddle fit.
