i have high withered horse with big shoulders, is this an appropriate saddle?
jenn b on Jun 8, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Sharon - Thanks for the question!
Unfortunately saddle fit is a bit tricky. Just based on your description I would not be able to accurately tell you if this saddle would work for your animal.
I would recommend that you have a saddle fitter come out to fit this saddle should you choose to purchase it.
This saddle is ideal for broader breeds of horses. It has the easy change fit solution systems which allow for optimal fit.

A shopper on Mar 17, 2015
Best Answer: This is a wonderful saddle for multi discipline use. As this saddle is made specifically for broader horses, please be sure that this is an appropriate fit for your animal. If a Wide is not for you, we offer this saddle in a regular version as well.

Would you recommend this saddle for a haflinger?
Amy N on Feb 3, 2016
Best Answer: This saddle does have the EASY-CHANGEâ„¢ Gullet System and includes a wide gullet plate. The wide (red) plate is 24.5cm or 9.6 inches, if that will work for your Haflinger. If you need a wider plate, the extra wide (white) plate is 25.3cm or 10 inches.
