As a little plug for you, the summer camp I work for during the summer has one of these saddles and it is literally the most comfortable saddle I have ever ridden in, bar none.
I actually almost traded them my current saddle for this saddle last summer but discovered that it did not fit Lacey as well as the one I already owned, so I didn't take it.
It fit the SUPER wide, mutton-withered, Saddlebred/Arab mare that comes to camp to a T, like it was made for her. So depending on the tree of this saddle, it might be really great for wider, hard to fit wide, horses.

Anyway, hopefully this helps somebody. :) Like I said, this is basically a wonderful saddle. I'd totally buy it except for the fact that I already have a saddle! I am gonna be SO jealous of the person who buys this saddle, I'm already coveting it and I totally don't need it. Haha

Good luck!

Hazel - 14 year old Angora goat

Atticus - 4 year old LaMancha/Alpine cross goat

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

Not that I need another saddle, but I am a sucker for old ones. It doesn't help that this one is pretty too.....

What is the gullet measurement?
