I just borrowed this saddle from a store and they let me try it. I rode in it for an hour, walk, trot, canter and my mare seemed happy or it didn't bother her. She sweat a but, no signs of dry spots or anything wrong, all the hair was flat so no signs of rubbing either, looked good.
I have taken many pictures of the saddle without a pad on my horse and I would be interested in having everyone's thoughts on this please :)
Im not exactly sure if it's too wide or what... The saddle maker is Western Rawhide and it has a 6 3/4'' gullet width and a 7 3/4'' high gullet with quarter horse bars.
Here is the link to see the pictures:

Please feel free to write what you think and any suggestions, im free to all opinions, the saddle was only borrowed, it ain't mine :)
