Big Horn Extra Wide Trail Saddle 908
Many horse owners worry about short backs. Not anymore! The Big Horn 908 has a single, tight round cut skirt that is 24inches long ï¿½ great for short backs! Unlike other saddles, this has an A-fork swell to give the rider a little more range of motion with their legs. The quilted suede seat will give the needed seat security for trail riding.
The double lined border tooling matches elegantly with the floral pattern to give a fun look with the conchos adding pizzazz against the rich chestnut leather.
The wide tree size is meant for the broad shoulders of Foundation Quarter Horses, Mustangs, and other mutton withered horses that have short backs.

Needed a wide gullet saddle to fit my short backed wide pony and this fit the bill perfectly. Its surprisingly comfortable as well and broke in quick. I was a little hesitant about the quality but for the price point it is at you cant get much better. Ive had this saddle for two months now and am very happy with it
At the age of 31, my foundation quarter horse finally has a western saddle that fits her! After 25 years of trying to find a western saddle that fit my horse, I had pretty much given up, resigning myself to continue being a bareback rider.This year, on a whim, I called the manufacturer of big horn and was told to contact Charlie or Josh at The Horse Saddle Shop. Within 1 day of reaching out to Josh, he recommended this saddle. When I put it on my horse for the vet, I was told that I couldn’t have found a better fitting western saddle. I wish I had known about The Horse Saddle Shop many years ago. I am so grateful that my horse finally has a western saddle that fits. Josh is truly a master at his craft. Thank you so much for your expertise, prompt shipping and patience! You are the best!

This saddle fits my short-backed 14HH Gypsy Vanner very well. The construction is solid, I like the rounded skirts. As far as saddles go it’s pretty light and I received it fairly quickly. I really like the chat function, I got all of my business taken care of that way. All of the folks who monitor the chat were very helpful and Josh was especially great about answering my questions.
