It has full bars and the gullet measures close to 8". This boy is seriously built like a tank.
I'm concerned about clearance... I'll have to see what it looks like once I have a pad on him and my hubby is in the saddle. Hubby is only 115 lbs so hopefully it's not a problem...
Just deciding whether this saddle is a good fit or whether I should sell it and try again. I will consider myself terribly lucky if it fits... the first time I bought a saddle for this particular horse it took me 8 tries and I still wasn't a huge fan of how the saddle fit him.
