Western Saddles for Larger Riders

I'm having a heck of a time trying to find a western saddle with a 19" seat and semi-QH bars for my husband and his Thoroughbred mare. I can find the larger seat or the narrower tree, but not in the same saddle. Any ideas? All advice would be really appreciated!

Check with someone like Schneider's to see what they can do for you. I expect you're going to be looking at more expensive saddles to get what you want. If Schneider's can't get you what you want, you might need to go custom.

Have you looked at synthetics? Abetta and wintec come in the large sizes, my riding school owns an 18 or 18 1/2, and I'm sure you could find something to work size wise. They're English saddles come with adjustable gullets, so they may have a similar adjustable system for western saddles?

Whew, for some reason finding a 19inch seat with semi QH bars is a bit difficult, at least for me. Found this one, just to help getcha along.

Thanks, I've already tried every catalog known to man. I've even looked at treeless, which is not recommended for heavier riders. I don't mind paying for a higher-end saddle, because you normally get what you pay for!

I wonder how I missed this one?! Thank you! I also think Circle Y will make one for him, but it's three times the price :(

I did look at synthetics, and have a western Wintec for one of my horses. They only go up to 18", though, and they are so uncomfortable.

Good luck in your search, I just went through all the sites I know but really didn't turn anything up. Hopefully other viewers here will be of more help.

Texasandi, thanks for trying, but we just sold this exact saddle! It fit my hubby, but it had full QH bars and was wayyyy too big for the horse :(
