I have this saddle: Circle Y Flex2 Kentucky Trail Saddle Reg - Statelinetack.com

I got the 17 inch saddle. Regular width.

It fits me great. My legs are long. I wear a 34 inch inseam pant. Even if you are taller than me, chances are your legs are not longer.

Criticisms that I have are:

1. It is a tad narrow for my horse. It is fine no more than I ride, but if I were to ride like you do, it might cause problems. She is an Arab, but she is wide.

2. It is pretty straight up in the front. Now that I am used to it, it is very comfortable.

I put covered stirrups on it. It weighs about 24 pounds.

They offer it in a wide tree - why didn't you get it if you have a wide Arab?

Good question. The horse has gotten fatter. It probably will fit her better once I work some of the fat off of her.

Yeh I messed with that one, found it to be very uncomfortable, not sure if it was the A fork tree or it was just narrow or shaped wrong for me.

That is interesting that it was uncomfortable to you because it is probably the most comfortable saddle that I ever rode in. I guess we must be put together a bit differently.

Are you talking trail saddle or trail gaited saddle? There is a difference.
