Marcinate Endurance Saddle Fit Critique

Photos: Marciante Saddle pictures by equestrianemily1991 - Photobucket The last few photos is of it cinched with a pad.

I am looking to see if this saddle could fit my mare; she is 15 hh, Bashkir Curly x Arabian. She is quite narrow (usually a semi-QH bar) but because she is gaited her shoulders do need some extra room. I think this saddle fits her fairly decent. She seems to have good room in the shoulder area, and I can run my hand underneath even with it cinched. However, I would like outside opinions. I haven't ridden in it yet, so I haven't noticed her reaction with it on. Please give me honest critiques. Thanks!

I first thought that too, but there is two to three inches between her shoulders and the pommel, and I think the panels fit her back decently. There also seems to be plenty of room for her shoulders. The girl that owns it used it on a large Appaloosa x TB and her mother thought it was a smudge too narrow for him. I haven't had a chance to see what it will be like with my weight added to the equation. That probably won't happen till this weekend.

Endurance saddles arnt supposed to fit like a western saddle, What looks like enough room western, isnt enough endurance. I went back and looked again. Looks to wide.

Endurance saddles are menat to have a couple inches more clearance at the withers and have a good air channel down the center of the back. Assuming you have a real endurance saddle, Some endurance saddles, ( I would suspect the Big Horn) arnt really endurance saddles and are simply a western saddle without horn.

I don't really care for the treeless; I rode in them quite a bit on a friend's Icelandics (the same friend who gave me this saddle to try, in fact lol) but I don't think I would use them on my mare in particular.

I think that the Big Horn is in fact considered a endurance saddle, but I could be wrong. With the air channel underneath it sounds more like a English type saddle fit.
