Easy Change Gullet Systems
So I am in the market for a new saddle. I have my eye on the "Phillip Dutton Saddle" but have some reservations about it, mainly because of the easy change gullet system.
i have had some people in my barn that had bad experiences with the easy change systems in their saddles - saddles not fitting, cracking and screws coming out.
What concerns me about the whole system in general is that it just changes the front of the saddle and not the entire channel. So if the saddle came with a "normal" size tree and your horse was wide and you change the gullet to accommodate the wider horse it still wouldn't fit all the way down the back. Which would put uneven pressure on the tree and not sit properly on the back. ...does that make sense or am i just entirely over thinking the whole thing?
i am just curious what everyone thinks about them - i tried to find another previous thread but couldnt find one.
Also - what do you think about the phillip dutton saddle?
