skirt length of Abetta all around 15 in seat??
Hi...I've tried to find this info everywhere, but can't....don't know why they're treating it like some trade secret! So I thought maybe someone out there has one & could measure it. It's the Abetta original model 20501, in a 15 inch seat size. Thanks very much in advance!!!
It has been many years since I sold Abetta, but I believe the length is 25"
Oh, dear, I was afraid of that....my gelding is so short backed that I was hoping for something shorter. He's also wide (needs 7 inch gullett) and even though I could probably fit into a 14 inch saddle, it seems nobody makes a wide saddle with a small seat size! Back to the drawing board...
Look for a barrel saddle. Short skirts, mine is 22in, and a 7in gullet.
Poppy, What kind is your saddle...I've never seen a barrel saddle that wide...
I have an older Simco FQHB. Pretty common size around me since there's mostly big bodied QHs. But mine is a 15in seat. 14 is actually very common in barrel saddles around here.
Some dealers actually do show the skirt length....
Check into Big Horn saddles
Extra wide has 25.5" skirts
Haflinger has 25"
Regular barrel racer, 7" gullet, FQHB, 24" skirt
IMO, better quality, too
