High Horse Garwood Gaited Saddle

I am interested in this saddle. Anyone know anything about it? I need a wide tree, their website is not clear about it. I will call them Monday but, thought I would ask here if anyone knew anything about these.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi Mike!

It's not the same saddle, but I just got a High Horse Eldorado. The saddle fitter we had out said that our boy needed the wide tree from this maker. She felt that in other saddles from other makers, he would most likely be in a medium tree.

Is there any way you can try on both sizes on your horse?

FYI: The fitter only had a medium in the Eldorado, so she put a wide from another High Horse on him to see how it worked (and it did).

The reason I went with the HH Eldorado was for the multiple rigging options. The saddle you are looking at has that as well.

We are currently using a 7/8's setup, but the back angled d-ring is also a very nice option if needed.

Is your horse Gaited? I thought about the ElDorado but, thought the gaited Garwood might be slightly better for him since he is gaited (Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse)

.

Ralide only make one width in a Gaited Tree, it is a 7" Gullet.

Basically is fits a touch wider that a Full QH Bar and had extra flair in the bars normally needed by a foundation type gaited Horse.

Those trees do not fit the narrower breed of gaited Horses

Whether or not your RM is a wide or narrow version is the question on will it fit.

The gaited tree does not fit my twh because he is of a stouter line. Does High Horse, a division of Circle Y, use Ralide trees or their own trees?

Every High Horse Saddle I have seen uses a Ralide.

Circle Y branded use a wood tree, not sure who makes them

No, he is a QH. But from what the saddle fitter said, the High Horse wide tree seems to be the equivalent of other manufacturer's medium tree.

<my bad> Mike, SouthernTrailsGA is right. I just checked the catalogue and it is only one width in their gaited saddles.

Per their catalogue (High Horse Saddle), they do use Ralide trees.

Ok, since we need Wide trees we decided to go with a Circle Y Arkansas Trail Gaiter and a Tucker Black Mountain gaited (Both on sale at Horse Saddle Shop). The Circle Y is for our Rocky Mountain and the Tucker is for the Kentucky Mountain.
