    Default I want this...

    saddle. http://www.horse.com/American-Saddle...dle-WKB16.html
    Admittedly I have no clue how they fit gullet wise. I know the difference in western/english seat sizes but that's about it.
    Not that I have any money to get one anyway of course.
    I do think some western saddles are beautiful. I'd really love to get one some day and know how the gullet sizes go/i.e. how quarter horse bars/ other sizes measure up with standard english gullet sizes.

    If anyone would like to enlighten me on the above feel free.
    I've always been curious in this area.

    It's a barrel saddle for one, so not a good all-around saddle. Meant to lock you in place, so not great for equitation.

    As for fit... This page gives an excellent overview on western saddle widths.

    Oh, I'd do worse than that. I'd want pink.

    Ahh, not that I'd get one anyway with my lack of knowledge on western saddles and lack of money atm! I just thought it was pretty and have really wanted one as a 'spare' hacking/pottering around saddle. Maybe I can just keep it in the house on a saddle rack, no?

    Thanks for the link, should be an interesting read.

    Actually, if you ever have a little money, I've heard fantastic thing about the Hilason western treeless saddles that come up on eBay (note, the English ones are considered crap, but the western ones seem to be decent). I've often thought of them myself, actually.

    Ooooh! NO!

    In my humble/professional opinion.....That's hideous!

    As Keket said - it's a barrel-racing saddle - had one (in nice BROWN leather!) for a while to back a particularly 'lively' horse (rodeo horse more like!) Definately locked me in place!

    I like it.
    It would have to be a spare of course, I do have normal tack too.
