Would this saddle work on a 13 hand Paso Fino horse? If it does, what seat size would you recomend? I am 5'9, 180LB.Thanks
Angel D on Nov 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I cannot guarantee that it would work for a Paso as they are gaited also for your seat size Remember this is a general guide – the size, weight and height of the rider combined will affect how different saddles feel based on their design. Western saddle measurements are 2" smaller than English or Aussie measurements.
I have always ride with a English saddles, but now I'm riding trail, and have a quarter horse, does it fits a quarter horse??
A shopper on Mar 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: it depends on whether your English saddle is medium tree or wide tree. If you use a medium tree then order the medium tree on this saddle also. It fits very much like my English saddle and my horse is hard to fit because she has high withers. If you use a wide tree because your qtr horse has a broad back, then I would buy the wide in this saddle also.

Hope this helps, you can always measure your horses withers if you are unsure, and that will help determine which one to order.
Can I use my western girth with this saddle?
