Western Saddle Fitting and Different Tree Sizes Go here and start by choosing the angle of your horses withers and it gives you pamplets to print out and cut out to match what size gullet you need and also helps you to find a good saddle. Poco (attached Picture) doesnt look that big but he has to have Full quarter horse bars.

Abetta's QH tree fits my mare, who is WIDE and takes Full QH bars, and my husband's gelding, who is narrow and takes a Medium (30 cm) English saddle (with an extra thick pad). You should be fine with the Abetta in their regular tree size.

The Average English Saddles Translate to Western Saddles
30cm - 6.5"
32cm - 6.75"
34cm - 7"
But the most important is angle of the Bars.
I would check for sure with a template, but with your description, picture and specs from the charts for your breed, I would say you need a Semi-QH 6.75" Gullet, this would be a custom size. Ralide Trees which are extremely popular in the US have the specs on a Semi-QH as 6.5" Gullet.
A Full-QH Tree normally has too flat of an angle for this higher withered Horse.
I belive you mentioned your trainer said an Arabian Tree, on many occasions they work, but not always on that breed.
Most Companies offer a template, I would check with that especially because of the cost getting a Saddle shipped that far.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

Thanks, this has all been very helpful!
I'll try to find someone over here who can come out and help me find his saddle size and I'll tell them that you think a good size would be Semi-QH with 6,75". If they can't help me I'll go for the template.
