Here are a list of averages in Western Saddles:
Semi-QH Bars- 6.5" Gullet, some say Medium Tree
Reg-QH Bars 6.75" Gullet
Full- QH Bars 7.0" Gullet, Some say Wide Tree
X-Wide QH Bars 7.25" Gullet
Narrow Draft Bars 7.5" Gullet
Wide Draft Bars 8.0" Gullet
I know many people on the Internet like the Wire Method, but it is a terrible way to measure most of the time, I will never make a saddle for someone based on the wire method....never ever
Reason, 2 horses are the same width where the Bar of the Saddle would fit and the same angle of the body in that area, one has mutton withers one has shark fin withers... according to the wire method one horse has a 8" gullet, one horse has a 6" Gullet.....
As far as your Horse, I do not think I have ever seen a QH or even an Arab that is 14.2 hands tall that cannot use a 26" round skirt, maybe some sqaure skirts might not work, but if you like square skirts a 25" should work fine.
