Well I bought my youngster a thorowgood T6 of ebay which was medium wide and I tried it on him and its too narrow so I thought its okay Il put a wide gullet in as they're meant to be adjustable. Then found out it wasnt adjustable as its the older model and they only have FISH inserts.
I have found another correct T6 model on EBAY that is already wide and has adjustable gullets plus fish so il be bidding for that but I may not get it.
Other thing is, the other lady at my yard let me try her old(half retired) horses saddle on Rico(my boy) and it fitted perfectly, I couldnt believe it so I thought great I can get the same one-its not a expensive saddle make so I thought I could get it and buy a new one when he's more mature... Only to find out that his is speciallymade to fit him although its obviously standard measurements such as wide.
So I was wondering.. Are all saddles classified as wide the same width? If you get me.. Because I know I need a 17" black wide saddle but I thought maybe they'd all differ.
The T6 one on Ebay will be my first hope but if not then I might have to look into getting a secondhand leather saddle so I need to know if I get him a 17" wide will it fit or are they all different?
