    So, I measured Chili...

    And was stunned.

    From now on, I'm trusting my gut. I knew she had a wide back!!

    I KNEW my friend's saddle was too small, bc Chili's trot was AWFUL in her saddle and I could barely stay seated (Chili's trot is beautifully smooth).

    Her saddle measured about 6 1/4"-6 3/4".

    Chili measured.....

    9"-11" (depending on exactly where on her withers I put the wire and TBH, I don't know if I put it on the right spot)

    I talked to the BO and looked at her saddles and just by looking at them, I saw the difference. They were WIDE WIDE WIDE whereas my friend's saddle was "regular"? So, I measured her saddle - 11". HAH! At least I'm doing something right with My Chili Girl.

    So, now I'm looking for a much larger saddle than I originally thought and I have a feeling it's going to be difficult.

    Have you looked in to the western wintec wide? I believe it's a 10" gullet. Don't quote me on that though.
