    I can't say for sure, but I do have the same saddle I use on my fat and happy arab who has a lazy dip / high withers. He's been losing weight too and it still fits. I LOVE this saddle!

    According to some info I found online, the gullet is 7 inches on this model. I intended to measure this saddle today but it totally slipped my mind. I can get it tomorrow if you'd like though!

    It fits Lacey well (fat wide horse), the angle of the bars (too flat) is the only thing wrong with it. I'd figure that if he horse you're trying to fit is a stock breed or built similarly to one, this saddle should fit him/her pretty well. :)


    Thanks Annanoel! :)

    Those Saddle King fenders may not be of the same quality as the Big Horn. Big Horn uses good stout webbing for their stirrup "leathers". I've seen webbing on fenders similar to seat belt material that stretches.

    He's an over weight, under worked Appy. He's my moms horse and in the 2 years she's owned him she has been on him once. Last time I rode him he bucked and I think it's due to saddle fit so I haven't ridden him since . He's devoloped a bit of a sway back from lack of work lol. I keep telling my mom every time I see him that he needs a diet and exercise plan but she wants my help and I just don't have time right now. If I get a saddle that fits him better maybe I'll get to make time, it's hard with no saddle, I don't do bareback well lol.
    Measurement would be great, the saddle I had been using on him(borrowing it from a friend) has a 7" gullet and it fits him well in the gullet, just not his back.

    Here's a pic of the fat spotted monster, or lazy sack of spots lol

    I've been meaning to get better pictures of that saddle anyway so I'll try to get some better ones (gullet measurement, underside, etc) tomorrow. :)

    If I had to guess, I'd bet that this saddle will fit him pretty well. Lacey has a pretty curvy back:



    And it followed her back really well (no dry spots along her back at all when she'd get sweaty, except at the withers where the angle is wrong for her - your guy looks like his shoulders will be the correct angle, if I had to guess).
    He's a cutie! :)

    Rachel1786, I would say it would probably fit your horse as well since he has some curve to his back. It used to be my saddle but had a bit too much rock for my flat backed TWH mare. It would probably work nicely for your boy

    More pictures! :)

    I measured the gullet (have a picture of that) and the outside, where people typically measure to get the gullet measurement), was about 7 inches. The "true" gullet measurement, from inside the gullet -concho to concho- was about 6, 6.5 inches (I was using a soft measuring tape which made things a little harder, haha).







    The best I could do taking a picture of the measurement by myself... :/











    Hopefully that all was helpful to someone! :)

    The saddle I have measures about 7 1/4" on the inside so I don't think this will fit him

    Thanks, I hope you find a seller! On the plus side for me, Legacy's previous owner still has his saddle and when they come up to see him they will bring the saddle to see if it still fits. He's been out of work a while so it may not, but I have my fingers crossed!
