Light saddle, high cantle. Horse's withers are taller than I am, and I need help with my old saddle.

Prior experience with same saddle has been really good.
nainci on Nov 3, 2017
I needed something that was lighter and more comfortable than my traditional leather western saddle and this did not disappoint! love it! I wonder why I waited so long!
Jessica E on Sep 29, 2017
Because of its light weight and easy upkeep.
Joan M on Sep 24, 2015
Needed a new saddle for my quarter horse. This fit perfect. I love the fact that it only weighs around 15-20#s. Very easy to saddle up!
carol h on Jun 10, 2014
It sounds like a saddle that would work for me. I have limited strength and mobility in my arms and shoulders so lightweight is essential. Hope it's as good as it looks
Fiona C on Jan 28, 2014
Borrowed my friend's new saddle yesterday, and it fit both my horses and me very well. Love the security of the very high back cantle, the rich black suede look, and so lightweight. I'm actually an english rider, so I was attracted to the round skirt style, and needed something more secure as a trail saddle for my spooky new horse.
Patricia G on Jan 17, 2014
great price on a great saddle thanks

I'm looking for model # 603, (stamped on the latigo strap keeper) is this it?
Jennifer C on May 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes! The 16" seat in black is model #603.
Has this saddle got 603, (for 16") or 604, (17") stamped on the latigo strap keeper?
A shopper on May 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: neither. The only stamping id is: 503. I purchased a 16"
does this come in a semi quarter horse size ?
Karen B on Jan 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I really do not know. You could always go on the Big Horn website to see what the options are. We have 2 16" saddles and 1 14" saddle. We are very pleased with the fit, comfort, and ride on our 15-2 QH mare and my 16H TWH/Standard bred cross. Our neighbors have 2 TWH's they use the 16" saddles on, both are a bit less than 15H and they perfect for them as well. Yes, all are this Big Horn saddle in question.
What options Options available ?
A shopper on Oct 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am unsure of the question your asking, item is available in size 16 or 17 inch seat.

BEST ANSWER: 7 inch gullet.
Does this saddle have fairly flat bars? I bought a King Krypton and it fit my horse pretty well in other ways but had way too much rock in the bars. Looking for something to fit a very flat, short back.
Annie D on Aug 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's hard to say without seeing the actual tree. I suggest contacting the manufacturer or buying and trying as you can return it if it does not fit.
Can a breast collar be attached to this saddle?
Christy S on Apr 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes there are D rings for a breast collar .
Is this saddle a wide tree?
Kim R on Mar 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Please take the time to read all the other comments. Yes, it is a wide tree, and it fits my full quarter horses with high withers with no problem. Very comfortable for half-day rides, and its hard to beat having to lift only 15 pounds.
How long is the off billet and tie strap?
Tiffany P on Feb 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The ones on the saddle are fairly long. I would comment also that the cinch rings are attached so high on the tree that I found it difficult to tie the strap knot. I've sold mine already, but if I was keeping it, I would have taken it to a tack shop and had the rings moved lower. Found the flank cinch holes poorly finished. I'm not confident that they would have held up to stress.
Will this saddle hold a 200lbs man?
Ashley T on Oct 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, The 17 inch should work.
What is the number stamped on the saddle?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Manufacturer's model number is A00504.
What is the gullet size in inches?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Big Horn Advises us that the gullet is 7" wide.
Can I get this saddle with a slick seat . Instead of suede seat ?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately this saddle is available in a suede seat only.
I'm looking at item #E002643 does it have a narrow twist?
Robin H on Mar 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The twist is average...I wouldn't say narrow.
Is there sales tax?
BONNIE A on Mar 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Orders shipping to Missouri, New York, and Pennsylvania will be charged sales tax and tax on shipping and handling.
Do you have a 15 inch?
A shopper on Oct 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I wanted to purchase a 15 inch because a friend of mine had that size, let me ride in it and it fit perfectly. However, it was not a size Stateline had, so I did purchase the 16in. It fits ok. It feels a little big, but not uncomfortably so. I do love how comfortable it is and lightweight !! I am 5 feet 4in and weigh about 98lbs. I hope this helps. I highly recommend this saddle!
I have a TWH. Do you think this saddle will work? I am using a wintec western right now.
A shopper on Jun 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Purchased the saddle for an older horse who pretty much just carries light weight. We do a camp for Seattle Childrens Hospital, Stanley Stamm Summer Camp, so our riders are kids with lots of challenges, and like the suede as a non slippery seat. Plus it fits an old appy great! Comfortable for both horse and rider.
And, light weight for ease
of tacking up!. My one change was to replace the synthetic billet and latigo with leather, as things won't slip as easily. The stirrups are a bit light weight, but some folks might prefer that.
For the price, well worth the money spent . Hope this helps!

What if the tree doesn't fit my fairly narrow, high withered Morgan? Can I return it?
Susan M on May 31, 2016
Is the rough-out suede used on the seat, front, cantle binding, and horn actual real leather suede or is it "faux" suede as one comment mentions? What about the seat jockeys? The Product Summary Features list it as "Quilted tough-out suede"--what is that, real leather suede or faux?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This item is made of Synthetic Suede.
Does anyone know if the stirrup on a 16in are the same as a 17in I need the larger but I am short.If the size goes up do the stirrups also go longer?? Thanks
A shopper on Mar 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am 5'1 and it fits just fine.
What kind of buckle is used to change stirrups?
Rita B on Mar 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Blevins buckle, so you can change the length on the Stirup leather, Stirrup Strap (or Keeper)
What is the model number on the tag under the concho near the pommel? I am looking for model #7240 because it fits every horse in my barn!
Bossmare on Dec 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought a 16 inch, not a 17 inch. Great size and I am larger. My saddle is at the barn so I cannot check the model number but I bought a full QH synthetic. It is a great saddle for any price. I bought 2 of these saddles and use on a saddlebred with high withers, a Peruvian Horse with a wide back, and a short backed horse who is not so wide. It is very versatile and nice fitting. Hope this helps.
what is the cantel size? also gullet size? thank you.
A shopper on Aug 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Mine is FQHB which makes the gullet 61/4" to 61/2" with a 5" cantle. Also important to me, because my horse has prominent withers, is the 13" swell.
How to take care (cleaning) for best results?
Cathy G on Jul 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Most recommend using just water and a rag.
Can anyone tell me the dimensions of the fenders on the BigHorn Synthetic Suede Full QH Trail Saddle? I am 5'2" and am concerned about stirrup length and I think saddle sz 16 is what I need.
Diane P on Jun 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have the 16" saddle, I'm 5'7" and have the buckles set on the 4 hole from the top. The top hole is 4.5" above the 4th hole. The distance from the top of the fender to the top inside of the padded stirrup is 18" when the fender is set on the top hole. The top of the fender is located 3 inches up inside the jockeys. See my pics on the CL ad for Big Horn saddle in Albuquerque in the Farm and Garden section . The last pic shows the buckle setting for me on the 4th hole. The fender is 8 inches at the widest part.
I tried my friend's synthetic big horn saddle today, and hers was a medium and just a bit pinchy... I'm wondering if these synthetic big horns saddles that you sell are medium-wide tree?

BEST ANSWER: Item# E004623 is the same saddle with Full QH bars which is wider in the gullet! I bought a used Big Horn like this off EBay several years ago and LOVE IT. They are super comfortable and I love the lightweight.
Does this saddle come in a 15?
Debbie P on Nov 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You should check with the saddle distributor or your local tack store for that answer. They will be able to answer that question and any other questions about the Big Horn saddle. It is a nice saddle for the money.
hi everyone. I have a very wide Arabian. I need a gullet at least 7.5" ... does this saddle fit my requirements?
thank you in advance.
Sheilah S on Apr 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Mine fits a very wide backed horse . My widest horse is a haflinger and I use a Big Horn haflinger saddle for him. It's a tad narrower than a draft horse saddle and also fits one of my wide stock horses.
I have a very thick, barrel shaped, slightly sloped back Quarter Horse and am having trouble finding a saddle to fit him. Some people think he is part draft horse due to his size, but he is a registered Quarter Horse. I need a saddle with an 8 inch gullet. Those who have this (or if Stateline reps know) - what is the gullet size on this saddle? Do you think this saddle is big enough for my horse? Thanks, Laura
Laura E on Jan 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sounds like you need a flex tree! My gaited horses need extra wide gullets, I finally bought flex trees ,and they are the answer.
