What saddles have interchangeable gullets?

I need a saddle with an interchangeable gullet for AQHA style HUS. Suggestions would be great.

I did try the Toullouse genesis and it fit "just ok"
I have currently a Bates on trial and it fits better then "just ok" but I've been told the flaps are too far forward and the seat is too small.

What else comes w/ an adjustable gullet?

Bates are the best I've heard of unless you wanna custom saddle

Wintecs, Thorowgoods, and some Collegiates have interchangeable gullets.

I'm surprised to hear that M. Toulouse offers a saddle with an interchangeable gullet system. Usually higher end leather saddle makers don't.

I love the new Genesis M.T saddle. I was looking at it at the tack store today, and it is very lovely. But it is way out of my price range - $1,500 is too much for my pocket right now. But it is an adjustable tree, it does not have the interchangeable gullets.

The Collegiate Convertible Diploma and there's another one I cannot think of right now. Starts with an A.

There is the Pessoa that has interchangeable gullets, and the Rembrant - but the Rembrandt is an Adjustable Tree.

I worded that wrong. The gullet isn't really interchangeable but it has a crank system so you can widen it and make it more narrow. It's really simple and the saddle is really well made. I liked it a ton and the tack shop really spent a ton of time trying to make it fit and it was definitely useable but it wasn't a great fit because the saddle fit him on the withers and shoulders but it was inches off his back...

Okay, that makes more sense.

I was like, 'What?! When did M. Toulouse start making saddles with interchangeable gullets? I'm slipping!'

I believe it's kinda weird interchangeable. Not like the standard one (in Bates or Wintec).

FP, why wouldn't look into the saddle for wider horses (since it sounds like a problem)? Duett, Thornhill and Black Country would be possible choices then.

Never heard of them! Going to search now.

Ok searched... He doesn't have "no withers or a wide back"... he just has wide shoulders... :(

Kitten, I'm not sure what her budget is. She might not be able to afford those you recommended. Even used, a Black Country is still a fairly pricey proposition.
