Wanted a light saddle to fit GTW, Sure hope this fits the horse and me.
MaryAnn O on Nov 26, 2018
I chose this saddle because I needed a lightweight saddle for a Tennessee Walker/Fox Trotter mix who is hard to fit.

I have a hard to fit horse and saw the reviews and wanted to try the King Series gaited saddle. I am partial to synthetic saddle for ease of care and hope this will be no exception.

We just purchased a Tennessee walker and needed a good saddle for him. I've always bought King Series Saddles and love them. they are comfortable, sturdy and stand up to a beating. ( I had a horse roll in one).I stand by King Series Saddles.

new horse needed another saddle
Main M on Apr 30, 2017
Still waiting about the high withers ? and the gullet pic to see how the bars lay. I don't want to have a restocking fee because it is to steep of an angle on the bars. My horse uses a 7" gullet on his saddle now but it is a qt. saddle and comes in contact with withers now that he has aged behind the swell but he still has wide shoulders with a hollow behind. The seat no longer fits me and I want to reduce the weight for me to lift on. I looked at a Big Horn but didn't like the lay of their bars too steep even though it was a 7" gullet.
Thank you Holly

Is this saddle appropriate for a high withered standardbred?
A shopper on Jul 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It depends on how wide your horse is. This saddle has a 7" gullet. The pommel is fairly high and should give enough clearance for a high withered horse as long as the gullet fits properly.
How long is the longest part of the skirt length? I have a short backed TWH and also wondered if a 30 x 30 pad would work with it?
A shopper on May 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The skirt length right behind the saddle seat is about 23.5 to 24 inches. I have a small (14.2) short-backed Missouri Foxtrotter/Tennessee Walker/ Warmblood cross and it works great on her. It is not too long for her. There is plenty of room for her big shoulder movement and it does not interfere with her very active back end movement. I use a 30" by 30" pad with it and it works great.
Would this be good for a Rocky Mountain?
Jennaabrams on Aug 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This saddle has gaited bars, a shorter skirt, higher gullet and sits back further on the horse to free up movement in the shoulders of a gaited horse. Along with the appropriate padding, it should do well for most gaited horse types. It always best to contact a local person with experience fitting saddles if you are unsure on the best saddle option for your horse. Good Luck!
Is the saddle open all the way through underneath or is it stitch at the back underneath ?
A shopper on May 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The gullet channel is open all the way through.
I own a old style Morgan. He does not have a fancy gait. Although he does have a fast stepping pace all the time. I trail ride with him and he's does this fast pace the whole time. I love it. I am using a western saddle now but, I'm wondering if a gaited saddle would be more comfortable for him?
Janie F on Jan 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: A gaited horse doesn't necessarily have to have a gaited saddle. As long as they have enough room for full shoulder rotatiin without the saddle impeding movement any saddle can work. Gaited saddles are usually flared in the front to allow this. This one actually did not fit my TN Walker mare and I an not using it. It is decent quality but did not fit her well. Doesn't mean it won't work for another body type horse. She has a high wither but wide back. I went back to using my regular old Big Horn western saddle. Hope this helped
will this work for an Arabian?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The King Series has gaited bars and the skirt is 26" x 22 1/2". It is possible this saddle would work for an Arabian horse, however, you should check with your horse professional.
Question is my horse is a short back Missouri Fox Trotter pretty round and has no Withers. How wide is the tree?
A shopper on Feb 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have a Rocky Mtn Mare who is quite round but has withers. The saddle fits her perfectly and she loves it after riding her in a very heavy Circle Y saddle. It's really great for gaited horses as you can easily swivel in the saddle to match her gait. Improved my riding a lot! Can't tell you how wide the tree is but it fits her and she is round with a pretty short back as well. I would recommend it.

Margo C on Feb 19, 2017
