WTB western saddle for high withered horse, or sell this one
Smoke is your typical high withered walking horse, and as I've come to learn more about saddle fit, I've realized the western saddle I have doesn't fit him. He never complains, but I can tell now that it can't be comfortable. I'd like to keep the saddle, but if someone has one that would fit him better I am willing to trade mine. The saddle I have to trade is 16 inch seat Big Horn. The only real wear visible is on the felt seat, it's just a bit dirty with use. I just oiled it last week. I'll attach photos.
I'll need a 16 inch seat, or around there. High gullet, narrower tree. I'd like to spend no more than 200, as I'm on a budget. Therefor, cosmetic wear does not bother me one bit as long as the saddle is safe and sound for use.
I was thinking a roper, because they tend to have higher horns, no? Perhaps that would be better for him. Feel free to give me pointers, as I'm still learning.
A custom-made gaited horse saddle is not an option at this time, so I am coming to my trusted and resourceful horseforum colleagues! Go ahead, make my day. :)
EDIT: title should say "Trade" this one ^^
