would this fit a slim quarab with small withers?
trinity r on Aug 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I personally would say no. I own this saddle and ride my Arabian in it that has small withers and have to use a half pad with it for extra support. Although when I use fitted or thicker pads it fits fine. I have the saddle with a regular tree and like i said it's still a little big. I hope this helps!

what color leathers match this saddle? I have this saddle and am having trouble finding matching stirrup leathers.
Leslie d on Jun 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You may wish to consider the Kincade stirrup leathers, please see the link below. Leather, as a natural product, does not take color dye the exact way for each hide, so it may not be an exact match but these stirrup leathers are also Kincade, and brown, so they would probably be your closest match.

BEST ANSWER: It depends on the color/shade of the saddle you get. Mine was more red than brown so it took some digging to find matching leathers and girth. If you need the leathers and girth, I would recommend getting the Kincade close contact saddle package. The company makes sure that the leather pieces in the package are from the same dye batch so you should get a good match.

my daughter rides in a 15 inch western saddle....what size will we need in this English saddle?
BONNEE S on Nov 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Comparative English seat sizes run about 2 1/2 to 3 inches larger than Western seat sizes.
For example, A 5'4" woman of average weight usually takes a size 17.
Do you have any English saddles you can try out first? Get a feel whether a 17 or a 17 1/2 is needed?
The saddle is big enough if the mounted rider can fit all 4 fingers behind her seat before going over the edge of the cantle. You do NOT want one too small or the seat will be forced up the back curve instead of the lowest part, which will keep the rider always tipped forward.
Would you say the real color is true to the picture? If it isn't what do you think the color looks like? And would this saddle fit a pretty standard sized Arab?
A shopper on Nov 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The wide tree was really wide. We ended up returning the saddle b/c it was even too wide for our fat quarter Pony and we went with the regular tree. The color is true to the picture.
