Alright I have very little sense when it comes to anything Western. Long story short one of the ladies wants to ride in a western saddle and she has tried this saddle on my horse.
My own observations, with smrobs' help, is that it seems a little too narrow.
Now reading QHRider's thread yesterday about back cinches and rigging (thanks Cowchick!) it just seems all wrong. But it's the only western saddle at the barn and it doesn't seem too terrible a fit but definitely not something long term.
Here are the pictures: (she's going to try to find another saddle to compare fit to.) First part is without pad, second is with, single pic is yesterday being lunged in it, and last is his back (which desperately needs build up to his topline still...!)
