Western saddle for a hard to fit horse!
This is my 16hh standardbred gelding named nitro :p
And im having alot of trouble trying to find a western saddle to fit him
He has high withers, wide shoulders,( his previous owner said he has a 8" gullet) And is fairly long backed,) hes also not swayback either, just looks like it in the picture) .
Also (i cant afford a saddle fitter, and ive tried to the house wire idea too).
I just hope you guys can help me figure out what saddle would be best recommended for him, I do alot of trails with him.
I really like the round skirt saddles, i know there recommended for Arabians, but would it be ok for a long backed horse?
This was worth a shot.
Im located in canada b.c also, And im more into purchasing the western saddle online, if you know of any good ones.
I bought a gaited saddle for my standardbred mare, but later found a old saddle that fit too and sold it. I don't remember brand it was five years ago. But it might be something to look in to, saddle with a gaited tree.
I would look for a wide roping saddle. They are usually wide enough for almost anything, but usually have a high gullet to protect a horse's withers under the stress of roping.
