SEAmom. If you look for the last hair in his mane, that is where the saddle will sit. Draw a line in the hair straight down. Now, find the last true rib. Find it farther down the belly then make a line straight up. The distance between those two marks is the length the saddle shouldn't exceed.

I checked the gullet on my boy again while I was out tonight. It's definitely a 7", not 8". Boo!!

Did you see Southerntrails's post (I quoted it for ya below)? He magically found/knew the manufacturers specs on this saddle and apparently I was measuring totally wrong.

I believe the Gullet is 6.75" with a slight flair in the front of the bar for shoulder relief
It could still work! :)
I bet that it is 6.75". I used to have a saddle with an 8" gullet and this one is much narrower. I don't know what I was thinking when I was measuring.

Magically? I wish, then I would play the lottery

I am a Bighorn Dealer, just don't sell them much anymore

BTW, an true 8" Gullet is very rare, they are 105 degree angle which is very flat in the Saddle world, designed for the largest Draft Horse with Table Top Withers.

7.5" is the most common sized Draft Saddle.

The Tree in your Saddle has been known to fit some of the more narrow high withered drafts before.

Wallaby,

My friend might be interested. We are going to measure her horse tomorrow, as best we can and take pictures of his back. I think your saddle might work.

His back is flat longitudianally, but is round in cross section (not table flat, but not having any "point" where the spine sticks out). He has slightly mutton withers and a VERY short back. He is a 15hh foundation qh and cute as a bug!
I will contact you Wed night, ok?

My horse is a freak of nature, lol. I measured his back according to what saddlebag said and a 20" saddle length should fit him great. Good grief!

I know there are western saddles that fit him because he was trained in a circle y - I just can't afford those saddles and want something lighter. Any idea if the skirt length still would work on him?

Oh no! Silly boy!

Hopefully SouthernTrails can come answer that for you... In that other post of his, he said that the tree on this saddle is 20.5" long so it might barely fit...but then it might not. Hopefully someone has more precise insight.
