Circle Y is a decent band and they make nice saddles (a little too overpriced I think - but what isn't anymore). One word of advice - don't buy the saddle before the horse.
Saddle fit is a very particular thing especially with Western saddles and, although it may be a good deal, if it doesn't fit your horse, then you may get stuck with it.
Secondly, as Wicked Nag suggested, that is way too wide for a normal QH. Full QH bars, which is usually meant for a wide, mutten withered horse, is normally only between 7 and 7 1/2" in the gullet. I don't believe that Circle Y makes many (if any) saddles for draft horses. It's also possible the the seller didn't measure it correctly.
Can you post a link to the saddle?
(BTW, I'm going to move this thread to the Tack forum where it will get better attention.)
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
