ruffled hair/clearence under pommel?

I forgot to mention in my last post that the Tucker sadde may be too narrow. With the professional choice 1/2" pad I still had a good 4 fingers clearance between the pad and the pommel. Is this saddlle too narrow. It was a medium tree, does it sound like I may need a wide tree? thanks again..

Pictures would be a great help. Some saddles are meant to have a good deal of clearance (such as an "A" fork) but I would like to see where the bars are contacting your horse. I would also like to see pictures both front and back, with and without your pad.

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.

Can you slide your hand inbetween the horse and the saddle where the scapula is and get to the stirrup bars (where the stirrups are) without having to lift the saddle up or feel like your hand is pinching?
If you can't get your hand back their easily or if you get it there but if you left your hand there for a bit your hand would hurt, your gullet is too narrow.

With all my horses I always use a full quarter horse bar. I'm also not a fan of Tucker saddles from what my friend has told me about them, but never tried them myself.
