Horsecrazygirl13 Ok yeah, I know it's cheap but we don't have any nice saddles for sale near us. Why shouldnt it fit?[/QUOTE]

Not every saddle fits every horse. What breed do you have? Is your horse wide or narrow across the top over the shoulder area? That will help you determine the tree width...as in do you need semi-Quarter Horse bars, full QH bars...see what I mean? Does your horse have a fairly level back or is there more of a dip? It's important to get a saddle that spreads the weight evenly.
If you Google search How to Fit a Western Saddle you should have choices of sites to go to. This is good information. If the saddle does not fit it can cause pain and discomfort for your horse.
I understand this is difficult as you stated you do not have a lot of options in your are to check out saddles. But if you could get to a tack store and look at and sit in some of the saddles it may help you make a better decision when you see one on line that you find interesting. Plus you will know the correct seat size for you. I did this yesterday and know that I would do best in a 16" I am 5'3" and under 130.
I hope you find the perfect saddle that works for both you and your horse.

All the Saddles you have been looking at are Full QH Bar 7" Gullet

The last one is a Semi-QH 6.5" Gullet

Not only are the Gullets different, the Angles of the Bars are different.

You have to buy a Saddle based on sizing, just like Shoes if you need a size 8 Narrow, you do not but a Size 9 Wide or the other way around.

Have you not measured your Horse to see what kind of Tree he/she needs?

How do you know they are right unless you have had saddles on the horse and fitted it?

I just don't want you to buy a saddle that doesn't fit and be stuck selling it

I don't know. How do you measure a horse for a saddle?

If you don't know your self I would fine somebody who does. Or have a saddle fitter come out. You will benefit from it greatly! Your gelding may very well need a 7 inch gullet but its better to know for sure. Another thing to keep in mind is that not all saddle company's measure the same. Somebodys full quarter bars may be somebody else's semi bars.
