Do you mean human butt size? Mines a 16.5. If you mean like QH or semi Qh bars
Mine is a gaited horse tree. There is a man, Don West who years ago developed a gaited horse tree for short backed Paso Fino type horses. That's the tree I have.

Bobo has been extremely difficult to fit. He has a semi qh wither but a full qh back. I went with a full qh bar, 6 3/4" gullet and a buildup pad. Seat size is 17".

Ha-ha-ha! Good point, Vida! I meant "horse" size of the tree, not the human one...

HAHA Vida! I have more saddles than horses.. sigh.. tack hog is what I am... But, my own personal I love it saddle is probably a medium(western) so... semi QH bars.. It seems to fit about any of them fairly well. Fits Abe great.. I also have what seems to be a wide tree synthetic (abetta, I think). I don't use it much but it's comfy for me. The aussies are paneled so? Dunno, but they fit my semi horses anyway.

I have 2 wide glide QH's so I use full QH bars.

It's kinda funny. I use qh bars (next after semi-qh) and it seems to fit both even my narrow paint. On other hand the wintec I had with semi-qh didn't fit them (even the narrow one).

My new saddle is a wide tree where as my other saddle is a medium/wide :)
