    Saddle Fit Question.

    Okay I have been searching long and hard for the right saddle. One that (a) fits my horse, (b) has a slick seat, I can't stand a suede seat, and (c) one that is in my price range. I found one from county supply, the item number is WKT07 in case anybody wants to look it up. But anyway here is my question. My horse has tall narrow withers. She is a quarter horse/thoroughbred. I had thought that in general I was looking for semi QH bars, I thought they would be more narrow, and I thought that full QH bars would be the worst, (low and flat). Anyways this saddle I ran across has full QH bars so I thought at first is was out of the question. Then I saw the dimensions, it says it is 6" wide by 4" tall. Wow. Most of the narrow gullets are like 6 1/4" the wide ones are like 7" also 4 " sounds pretty tall. I don't know for sure but it sounds like it. So I'm just wondering does this make any since? Can a full QH bar tree actually be made narrow and tall? Should I order the saddle.....? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
    Oh and by the way, I have searched my local feed and tack stores. No luck really. And I do live out in the middle of nowhere so I really don't have that many places to choose from anyway. That's why I'm considering ordering.

    The Tahoe brand use a hollow fiberglass tree, which is not recommended for heavy use or a heavy rider.

    They do have QH bars and seemed to fit wide Horses, there is defiantly a misprint, they are not 6" as stated, more like 6.75 or 7", at least the way most people measure them.

    The Trees are made in India and assemble there also, they do use US leather.

    They are pretty, but for 400.00 I would absolutely look for used if that is your budget.

    Thanks for the reply. I was afraid something was not right about it being 6x4. I finally got a reply back from County Supply and they said that they were looking into it because that did not sound right. They said I shouldn't get Full QH bars. Which I already knew that, but this misprint had me confused. Now I just don't know what to get. I have trouble finding good used ones, that fit at least. And I really hate the look of the new cheap synthetic saddles. Ebay makes me too nervous because it might not fit and most sellers don't want to fool with returns. I don't know.....if anybody has any ideas I would like to hear them.
    The search goes on......
