Ok, so I was able to use some Abetta saddles from a local tack shop and tried them all on Snickers - but none of them fit! They all put an intense amount of pressure just behind the shoulder, where apparently the Arabian saddle is rounded to fill in the hallow that is usually just behind the scapula. However, he has muscle there rather than a hallow, so there's a lot of pressure! I put picture below to show where I'm talking about on the saddle. The Arabian was the worst, and the wide quarter horse tree wasn't much better. The regular Quarter Horse tree was the closest, and I honestly think that a 3/4 quarter horse tree would work and that's what the trainer uses on all the Arabians where I got him. However, from as much as I can tell, Abetta doesn't make any endurance models that size. They do have the flex tree (Abetta Nylon Stealth Flex Endurance Saddle
), but I've never used one before and am not sure if that would solve the problem. Any suggestions? I'd really like to get an Abetta if it'll work, but if anyone has another suggestion for similar quality and price I would really appreciate it. Thank you!
