*Lockwood runs off to compare Lacey and Dig pics side by side*

** which of course is even more embarrasing for Dig since he should be at least as long as an Arab**

I was curious at feed time tonight...
24" on the tape and 26 1/2" with the case.


Looks like I will have to break down and buy a "special" little horsie tree saddle. Sorry, I really wanted it too.

Let me double check the gullet width for my horse tomorrow while I'm at the barn. I think I need a 7", but I keep forgetting if I need a 7" and have been using the bo's 8" or vice versa. Lol. I'll let you know tomorrow evening!

The Skirts are 26" on that Saddle, about 3" of the skirt will go farther forward that the front of you tape is sitting.

The bars in that tree are 20.5" long, the extra skirting sticks past the bars in the front (about 3") and the back (about 3"). In that respect the saddle will fit, the 115 is made for the short backed Arabian which has on less vertebra than a QH

I believe the Gullet is 6.75" with a slight flair in the front of the bar for shoulder relief.

Dang, if you were selling this saddle a few months from now I would snatch it up. Having the hardest time finding a western saddle to fit my arab. Just don't have the money right now!

SouthernTrails! My Hero!
Thank you for saving us all from my terrible, haphazard, measuring tape lackofskill.
You're the best!

Lockwood: ? ? ? This saddle, gets you high, lets you down, gets you high again...maybe you DON'T want it! Dramatic juju, it seems!

Sounds great, SEAMom! :)

Bummer deal, countrylady! That's the worst.

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

Thanks STG. I couldn't get the tape or Dig to be still as he was in the mood to roll.
My boy is a gaited RMH and needs extra shoulder and hip freedom or will get pacey. I have a hornless Kimberely Aussie that totals 19" which fits him well, but my friends are scared of it and I also have a larger heavier Aussie stock saddle with a horn, but it is too big for Digby.

I'm starting to think he decided to be born minus three extra vertebra just to see if he could outdo Arab shortness.

I guess I went out too late last night because my horse was already outside for the night and it was almost dark. I couldn't even see him! I'm going our again tonight, so I'll try again to measure him tonight. Sorry!
