I have a Dakota Barrel Saddle with FQHB (7 1/2" gullet). It took me forever to find a saddle to fit my QH but this one does the trick. He has a lot of shoulder to get around and that was my main problem fitting him, so he might be built different than yours. I love Dakotas though. Great quality for an even better price! I've been looking at the roping saddle lately...so tempting :) Good luck on your saddle hunt!
