Red face Using a Crates saddle on a Quarter Horse?

I've heard good things about Crates saddles, but I understand they are made for gaited horses. I have a quarter horse we show at local shows and want to get more into the AQHA shows. Would a Crates fit my QH and would the AQHA people be laughing at me in a Crates saddle?

Crates makes all kinds of saddles, I had a Crates team roping saddle for years, it was a good saddle.

I know a few ranchers that have a Crates in their barn. Seem to work fine on QHs and TBs.

Crates (the original) makes all kinds of Saddles for all kinds of Horses, they make more non-gaited Saddles than they do gaited Saddles


May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

My grandfather only uses crates and they are great solid saddles. He's been team roping in them for like 50 years!
