What are equi fit bars?
Hi I am looking at purchasing a crates saddle(used). The saddle has Equi fit bars. I have never heard of those? Are they simaler to quater horse bars?
Equi-Fit is a Trademark for a Tree built by the Steele Saddle Tree Company.
Steele Make Semi, Reg., Full QH Bars and a few others using that Trademark.
You will have to ask the Selle what the Bars or Gullet Size is to know if it would fit your Horse.
Steele Makes a good Tree and Crates make a good Saddle :-)
So if I need semi quater horse bars. What gullet size is that?
This is the good Steele company- http://www.steelesaddle.com/
This is the knock off that gets sold on ebay- http://www.steelesaddletreellc.com/FTTH2.html
This is the real Crates- http://www.cratesleather.com/
This is the Crates that gets sold on Ebay under the GW Crate name - http://stores.ebay.com/Riders-Choice-Saddle-Pad-Co
ETA- Sorry I want to appologize. Those Steele equi-fit trees look like a good one.
The saddle isnt a crates its from the ASA western collection. From the look and info I have collected its seems to be a good quality saddle. We are able to return it but we have to pay shipping both ways if we need to return it. The seller is going to find the shipping cost tomorrow but I will have to wait til Thursday to know. We can also just buy the saddle and the seller pays shipping but we wont be able to return it. The other thing is I REALLY need a new saddle for reining but I need to have option of returning it. Is it worth no being able to return even when I am 98% sure it will fit?
You may already know this but here is some information that may help.
If you haven't already, take a wither tracing. How to measure your gaited horse or mule for a saddle. FYI this is not just for mules and gaited horses :-D
Take that 3" down and bottom measurement. A semi quarter horse tree typically has a 6 inch gullet to a 12 inch bar spread and a full quarter horse tree has a 7 to 8 inch gullet and a 13 to 14 inch bar spread
Thank you all. I did have mesured by a saddle fitter so 6.5in is what I need.
Vida, I think you have it incorrect. The Steel Tree that you have as the knockoff is the real Steel Tree company Steele Saddle Tree LLC - Fit To The Horse who makes trees for the majority of the name brand saddles out there.
The one you have listed as the real Steel is actually a saddle maker and a tree maker.
Both are very well made, neither is a knockoff.
