Comfy!!!! But I have to admit my Abetta endurance is just as comfy...but this one certainly fits Arrow better...even marks all over...no pics...put new batteries in the camera and they weren't charged for some reason....oh well ;) He is such a good boy!!!!

Details please ... what type of saddle is it? So glad it fits Arrow well. A good fit is hard to come by, that's for sure!

I bought a Big Horn Draft Cross saddle (model 1680) - it has an 8" gullet designed for drafts and draft crosses....I think someone said the newest model has a flex tree?This pic is from our try on when I got the saddle. The pad has a built up area up front for high withered horses, although his withers aren't really high, he does have a big, er, shoulder bulge and this pad fills that up. This saddle is not humongeous though, I think it may even fit my Miss Dolly, who is the bloodiest, biggest Standardbred I have ever seen, up close and personal! My Abetta endurance - it is pretty wide too -- fits her with a thicker pad than I use on Arrow. I really like that when I got on him, the new saddle doesn't move...I really hate that :lol: And, my riding paddock is DRY! Hard to believe there was still had snow there last weekend! I am a very spoiled Nancy.... :oops:

My friend has that very saddle for her belgian x quarter horse.. it's a great fit on him and she lovessssssss it.. good choice.. I love it too.. and find it's very similar to my custom saddle.. which by the way I paid more than twice then the big horn :x hind sight.. 20/20 :roll:

Hi Wissy, yes I love the saddle. It fits Sailor very nicely...altough i use a thick felt/neoprene pad to make sure it's not sitting anywhere close to his high withers. No pressure points and is comfy for me too! I like that it's relatively light and it's got the double rigging.
