Please explain the difference between the gaited bars and the semi Qt bars and full Qt bars. I am not asking the gullet width that is stated. I want to know the difference in the bars and how they differ from each other?
Thank you Holly F.

BEST ANSWER: American Saddlery, the Manufacturer of this saddle, advises us that along with the gullet widths, the pitch/angle is different for each type of bar. Semi Quarter Horse bars are steeper, and full Quarter Horse bars are more open to accommodate a wider horse. The Gaited and Arabian bars have more twist/curvature from front to back as well as more bar flare in front for more shoulder clearance.
Are gaited bars or semi quarter horse bars more narrow? My older twh has a narrow top line. I've measured him & Im still having a hard time figuring out which bars would fit him better. I understand this a tough question because there is so much that goes into saddle fitting but thought Id ask anyways.
Thank-you. Mandy

BEST ANSWER: Generally gaited bars ARE considered more narrow, but you're right, there is a lot more to consider. Your best bet is to consult a saddle fitter, trainer, or other knowledgeable horseperson who can physically examine your horse in person and advise you.
I have a 260 which one of my TWH's withers have out grow. I also have a dated 250, doesn't fit either. I want to try the 2644. Do you take returns if it doesn't work ?

Can you tell me where to measure my saddly vs this one to find gullett size? Is this returnable if it does'nt fit?
karan s on Aug 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Gullet width is measured across the conchos positioned under the fork. Please keep in mind Manufacturers do this from the "skeleton" of the saddle before the leather is built on top, so the finished saddle may appear to have a smaller gullet.
Color options?

BEST ANSWER: I think it was only in black. It is lightweight and great for an older person to use. Lighter than some English saddles that I work with.
1) Do you make a black Big Horn synthetic saddle with semi quarter horse bars, not full quarter horse bars?

2) I have a Big Horn 101 and 501 and I'd love to find another one. Why don't you use style numbers any more?
