skirt length of Abetta all around 15 in seat??

Hi...I've tried to find this info everywhere, but can't....don't know why they're treating it like some trade secret! So I thought maybe someone out there has one & could measure it. It's the Abetta original model 20501, in a 15 inch seat size. Thanks very much in advance!!!

It has been many years since I sold Abetta, but I believe the length is 25"

Oh, dear, I was afraid of that....my gelding is so short backed that I was hoping for something shorter. He's also wide (needs 7 inch gullett) and even though I could probably fit into a 14 inch saddle, it seems nobody makes a wide saddle with a small seat size! Back to the drawing board...

Look for a barrel saddle. Short skirts, mine is 22in, and a 7in gullet.

Poppy, What kind is your saddle...I've never seen a barrel saddle that wide...

I have an older Simco FQHB. Pretty common size around me since there's mostly big bodied QHs. But mine is a 15in seat. 14 is actually very common in barrel saddles around here.

I am in the exact same boat as you and am having a heck of a time finding a good western saddle to fit my no-backed mutton withered horse.

Check into Big Horn saddles
Extra wide has 25.5" skirts
Haflinger has 25"
Regular barrel racer, 7" gullet, FQHB, 24" skirt
IMO, better quality, too
