Saddle fit question

Last night hubby & I measured our horses. We want to get new saddles for them. I have to, since I have the new horse and Angel's saddle wont fit him, Dave wants to get a new one for Cherokee because he doesnt like how his fits.

So... Oby measured 7.5" gullet and 12.5" bar spread. I am assuming that a saddle with a 7" gullet and Full QH bars should be ok for him... right?

For Cherokee - he measured 6.5" gullet and a 12" bar spread. Would a 6" gullet and seni QH bars be the way to go for him? Just wondering if its ok if the gullet is a 1/2" smaller than what we measured??

This is the saddle I was thinking about getting for Oby...

Any idea if this will fit him?

I don't know if it would fit or not... Do ya have any friends that might have a saddle that would be the size you are looking for? Maybe you could try 'em on?
