I have been thinking about getting a Fabtron Lady Trail Saddle for my mutton backed Spotted Saddle Horse. I had a bad experiance with an Abbetta saddle. It would not stay on her back. Rolled on her when riding and mounting. I love the light weight of the cordera saddles and would like to get one that would fix her. She needs a wide tree (8")and wondered if the Fabtron would work on her. Any thoughts?
For my gaited mare, who's got big shoulders but not a high withers, I use a Fabtron gaited trail saddle, regular width tree (we measured for fit) and it fits great without slipping. It has a Steele Equi-fit tree which is great for gaited horses. I would have rather had a narrower twist such as the Lady Trail has, but this one is great, too, and the tree fits my horse where the Lady Trail has QH tree style instead of for gaited horses. Good luck!
My gaited wide tree arrived today and wouldn't you know it it was barely in the door when it began to rain. Didn't quit until after dark. My horse meas. 8" so as soon as I can I'll let you know how the Tennessean fits.
