I've been looking forever with my friend to find a saddle for her Arab/Paint cross. The horse is built like a barrel, with a super sort back. She needs a 16" seat, EXTRA wide bars/gullet, dropped rigging, round or very short skirt, all around saddle for mainly speed and trail riding. No Mexican made or synthetic. Must be well made, an older Billy Cook, Circle Y, Crates, or anything else of USED good quality. She's looking to spend around $500.
We have been looking since December with no luck, so I'm really hoping someone here can help!
