Re: Best saddle for a wide horse?

I had hip problems witha SS on my v. wide welsh cob.

I cant answer for western saddles but I use a free and easy saddle now which
works briliantly. its sort of an english version of an orthaflex or Roe
Richardson. They have a US agent now.

A cheap option might also be a Wintec 500 AP as the wide and ex wide gullets
suit flat topped horses.

good luck to you freind the dread saddle hunt is always a headache!
