Aussie saddle tree sizes
I have a quick question, and figured that you all would have the most experience with australian saddles. I have a ~15hh arabian gelding who typically wears a semi-QH or QH bar western saddle (depending on the brand), and am ordering a synthetic Australian saddle. I will say he is more full-bodied than the average arabian, however I don't have a lot of experience with fitting saddles. I have the option to go with the normal or wide tree-- does anyone have input? If it helps, it is a Down Under Kimberley series saddle.
I know that if I purchase the wide tree, I have the option to send it back to the company with a wither trace for a free adjustment, however the wide tree saddle is on back-order for a few weeks. :(
So I suppose my question is-- in your experience, can a horse as I described typically fit a "normal" treed Australian saddle, or is my best bet to go with the wide?
Ah, the company just called and recommended a wide tree saddle. ;) I suppose this thread will just be here for reference!
take a withers tracing, generally downunder adjusts the trees before they ship them.
I got a Kimberly fairly recently. I sent in a wither tracing based on the horse I wanted to use it on at the same time I ordered and paid for the saddle. It fits lovely.
