Sorry, but 'average' and a 'bit on the narrow side' don't really mean anything. Most of the appaloosas I see in the UK are at at least a wide fit, being QH ancestry.
Again, most of the old Whippy saddles I've seen (including sidesaddles) were narrow fit - they survived through underuse because horses have generally got wider. I'd double check the width before you buy and also take into account the tree profile. That saddle is middle deep-seated (slight curve to horse's back profile) and appys tend to be fairly flat, in my experience. Horses being as they are, though, I might be completely wrong
