    Hi guys looking for some suggestions of possible saddles.

    I have a three year old filly only very lightly ridden looking for a good saddle.

    She is Arab derivative mother station father with possible Clyde X and I.

    She has the extremely wide barrel and short back of the Arab and I have a large bum. So the challenge is finding a saddle to fit her.

    Her shoulders are still developing and her fat belly means she tends to slip her saddle forward even when using a cropper.

    I am happy to leave her to mature longer or to contemplate getting a larger horse if I can't find the right fit for her.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    Each horse is different. extremely wide barrel and short back of the her shoulders are still developing? mine is a TB..
    .I think you need to choose some brands which were designed for arab or Clyde X and I. For example, Bucas or Harrison howard. they fit on arab. ..maybe on Clyde as well.
