I have been saddle shopping for 2 years trying to find a saddle to fit my Kentucky Mountain horse, he has a wide back and big shoulders. He gaits nicely at a slow pace, but breaks gait when going faster and I think he needs more shoulder allowance. I've tried a dozen saddles and they all seem to bridge and/or dig into his shoulders. So, I've decided to try a gaited tree saddle....the problem is, which one? Here are some that I am considering, I would appreciate any suggestions or knowledge about these saddles or others that may work. I like the western look but I'm also considering an endurance saddle for the lightweight factor. Thanks!

Reinsman GAITED Pleasure saddle #4180-160C
Reinsman Saddle Comfort Fit Gaited Saddle #4186-160C
Crates Gaited Saddle #281-4M (1S)
Crates Gaited Trail Saddle #282-4C
Crates Gaited Lite Traveler Endurance Saddle #5001-4
Big Horn Walking Horse Saddle #1700
Tex Tan Hereford Gaited Trail Saddle 08-4023
Tex Tan Flex Lite Flex Tree Endurance Saddle with horn

My friend found a saddle made in Kentucky by Eli Miller. They come with or without horns. She loves it and it fits her gaited horse well. You can google and find it.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I've already tried the Eli Miller saddles and they are too narrow for my horse.

Thanks for the info, I've been looking at saddles on your Saddle Shop online for awhile now. Are there any other saddles that you would suggest for a wide back gaited horse with big shoulders?
