Where are you shipping it from and too?
U-Haul has some Large boxes that you can use, cut them down to the smallest size so you can to keep the costs on shipping down, UPS charges more by box size than by weight
The UPS Store may have the correct size Box also
The main thing is to remember is anything over 108" total (circumference plus length), is where the charges will go crazy.....
A Western Saddle in the "Correct Sized Box" should never cost more than 100.00 even from Florida to Washington State. Post Office about 80.00
Post Office is another Choice, I shipped a Saddle from GA to Hawaii on USPS 2 Priority Mail for 115.00 last week.
