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!

If you call Schneider's and talk to them, or call Uncle Bob's Tack Shop, and talk to him, he works with the saddle makers and can get them made for you in the size/tree you need. Those sizes are never listed in the catalogues. If you don't mind paying for really good quality, call Dale Chavez and have him custom make one for your husband. I will never ride in any other maker's saddle now that I have my Chavez. But it won't be cheap.
Uncle Bob's Tack Mobile Tack Store Phone: 515-991-6278. I cannot say enough nice things about Bob Whitlatch and how helpful he is. He literally drove up to a horse show to deliver a slinky I needed and couldn't find elsewhere and he didn't charge me a dime over the normal price. LOVE Uncle Bob! Call him before Schneider's, he works with them at big horse shows so he's probably the best contact you can have for them & his own shop.
Custom Western Show Tack, Saddles, Silver Halters and Awards - Dale Chavez Saddles Dale Chavez is a wonderful, nice gentleman. He also makes the most comfortable saddles I've ever ridden in and I wanted one for years. Now that I have it, they can bury it with me when I die, I love it so much.
