At Horse Saddle Shop, we're proud to be involved with our manufacturers in the designing of saddles based on what you, our customer, tells us. (They listen to us because we sell most of their saddles) This saddle is case and point.
We heard over and over how difficult it was to find a saddle for and very broad horse that also has a short back - like most haflingers, fjords, and gypsy vanners. Your message has been heard!
We worked together with Fabtron to produce this saddle which has Extra Wide fiberglass covered wood tree made by Steele Saddle Tree Co. with a 7 1/2" gullet. And check out the skirt - short and rounded so there will be no interference with the hip movement of your short-backed horse. It comes with a 16" suede, padded seat and has 7/8 position rigging with heavy stainless steel dees.
The leather is finished in a show brown. This saddle is not available anywhere else. It is an exclusive design for HorseSaddleShop.com because you let us know what you needed! Thanks and enjoy this saddle for yourself!
