My first custom saddle!
Yesterday was a pretty good day for me. I ordered my first custom saddle and only my second brand new saddle ever. It's a 17" wade tree with a 3 1/2 by 3 inch horn, 5 inch high by 11 inch wide semi shovel cantle. The gullet is 6 wide by 7 high (I think). The gullet is the most important part to me as I want to make sure that this saddle fits a large variety of horses. The bars are what's called Northwest bars by the tree maker Sonny Felkins.
I give all these specs because I'd like to know what you guys think of it and what you'd do different. What are the specs on osme of your saddles and what would you like to change on them?
