Tucker saddle opinions

I have been searching for a saddle to fit my wide shoulder appy gelding. I would like a trail saddle, possibly endurance style, with a cushy seat. I have looked through Tucker saddles brochure and really like the look, style, and "perceived" comfort of their endurance saddles. I want to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly about the way these saddles have fit your horses. My guy is going to be difficult to fit. I am considering trialing one after I hear your experiences good and bad.

just messaged you back, but I thought I'd say it on here also:
I love my Tucker saddle and it's worth every penny in my opinion. It's well made and extremely comfortable. The seat has gel pads in it making it something you can ride in all day. The seat is leather but it's a nice padded leather...not like some that you can get.

I definitely recommend this saddle! I've used it for trails, pleasure riding, and one show.
It fit my hard to fit horse extremely well and I've had no issues with it what-so-ever

I rode in one when I bought my gelding, I couldn't convince his former owner to sell it to me. I tried my hardest, though! It was a Tucker plantation saddle, if memory serves. It fit a round bodied, witherless, wide as all get out gelding.

Hugs and Blessed be

GG, do you find that the sizes run small for the horse?
