My daughters horse seems to be in between full quarter bars and semi quarter. Are there saddles made in between. Semi pinch her and full seem to wide and slide back. Any suggestions? Right now using a full quarter saddle and just try to use a very thick pad underneath but that seems to make it slide more--like can't cinch it tight enough with that much pad underneath

Do you know the gullet widths and angles of the bars? The equi-fit tree by Steele Tree Co. is supposed to be between the semi qh and Full qh bar. Also the Billy Cook barrel saddle usually has the narrow gullet width with the wide angle making it a in-between candidate as well.

Do you know who made the trees you've got? It's possible that they're very different *designs* as well as very different sizes. It might be that trying a semi-QH by another manufacturer (one using a different tree) would help.

In addition, other aspects of the saddle can cause pinching. For example, if a saddle is too long, so it gets "propped up" at the back, it will always pinch the shoulder.

I have 2 full quarter saddles and one has a 7" gullet I believe and the other 6 1/2 inch. The semi quarter has a 6"
I have had other semi quarters and they were the same and pinched...... none are too long on her back
