Glad I am not the only one who saw that
At least Kitten cleared it up!
I'd say pass on it too Kitten. I greatly dislike the gullet channel width...way to narrow.
If you are going to invest in a saddle, definitely make it a saddle that is good quality all round. I really don't know much about this particular saddle brand, but by looking at the gullet channel width, I'd of passed on it personally. A gullet channel that narrow, will put pressure on the muscles around the horses spine, not allowing those muscles to strengthen and develop.
You want to beable to fit at least 4 fingers inbetween those pannels, and definitely at least 3 fingers inbetween the panels at the back of the saddle. To me, it appears that you can barely get 2. To narrow.
If you get a chance to take a look at the M.T's - flip one over and look at their gullet channel widths. Nice and wide. You can run 3 to 4 fingers inbewteen those panels from pommel to cantle.
