Western Saddles
Tree Widths:
Semi-Quarter horse bars usually have a 6 1/4" gullet, and Quarter Horse Bars usually have a 6 1/2" to 6 3/4" gullet. Designed to fit the average horse, one of these two widths will fit approximately 80% of horses comfortably.
Full-Quarter horse bars usually have a 7" gullet. They are designed for mutton-withered horses with broader backs.
Arab saddles, usually with 6 1/2" to 6 3/4" gullets, are for Arabians. They have a shorter gullet.
Gaited horse saddles feature a higher gullet, usually 8 1/2", to accommodate higher withers. They also have gaited bars, which usually have a 6 3/4" to 7" gullet.
Haflinger saddles are made for that breed, or other short-backed, mutton-withered horses, with a 7 1/2" gullet.
Draft horse saddles feature an 8" gullet, and are made specifically for large Draft horses and Draft crosses.

EVALUATE THE SADDLE 
ON THE HORSE


With the saddle positioned correctly, the bars of the tree behind the shoulder blades of the horse, evaluate the following points:


Gullet Clearance
• Place the saddle on the horse’s bare back without a pad. There should be two to three fingers space between the top of the wither and the gullet of the saddle.
• If you can vertically fit your whole hand between the bottom of the gullet and the wither, the tree is probably too narrow.
• If there is room for only one finger or the bottom of the gullet is touching the top of the wither, the tree is probably too wide.

General Rules to Follow
First, start with some general rules of thumb for proper western saddle seat size for the rider:
• Keep in mind that Western saddle seat size refers to rider fit and has nothing to do with how the saddle fits the horse.
• There should be approximately four inches between the front of your body and the fork (or swells).
• Your rump should rest on the base of the cantle, but should not be pressed against the back of the cantle.
• Some prefer a tighter fit, some looser. In general, it's better to have a saddle a smidge too big than a smidge too small. (A smaller saddle may cause uncomfortable chaffing.)
All western saddles come with a stated seat size. Seat size simply measures the distance from the base of the horn to the top middle of the cantle. This distance is then expressed as a size in half-inch increments from 12 inches to 17 inches.
Western Saddle Seat Sizes
The following will give you a very general idea of saddle sizes:
• Youth: 12"-13"
• Small Adult: 14"
• Average Adult: 15"
• Large Adult: 16"
• Extra Large Adult: 17"
In reality, seat size is just one factor determining the fit of a western saddle. Sit in the same size of a variety of different styles and brands of saddles and you'll find significant differences in the fit. You might find that a 14 1/2" Circle Y barrel racing saddle fits well, but that you need a 15" in a Dale Martin ranch saddle.
