    From experience....

    Sewing machine belt romels can get a limp and loose their life plus I find them to be too light unless someone braids a pile of buttons on them to give them some weight.

    I had a saddle that was built for TBs. The gullet was narrower and taller with a steeper bar angle on a Weatherly tree. I loved the saddle but unfortunately it didn't work well on my QHs. But it fit...

    I agree with beau.

    I see what you're saying Draftmare. You want to help your hard to fit horse yet you don't want to use the pad as an excuse for a poor fitting saddle.

    I've never used a CSI....

    Here most roads are gravel/dirt. As soon as you get off the freeway it will be dirt and a majority of the county roads are dirt. The dirt is greasy as soon as it gets wet so 4WD, aggressive tread,...

    Bluey is correct. We hang our hobbles from a keeper or ring by the back cinch.
    I don't tie and fast like the guys down south do. When I was down there it was typical for hobbles to be around the...

    You seem to be in an in-between area with this saddle from my experience.
    But some of that may depend on the gullet, bar angle and skirt length.
    I know a lot of people who ride drafts and draft...

    Whether you use the farmer knot tie, the cinch buckle or fold it over.
    I have used them all. One is no safer than the other, it depends on your rigging and how it all fits under your leg.

    Diamond pads are awesome. They are a wool blend not 100% like the 5 Stars but they hold up good, I've used them for years.

    Agree with Bluey, plus the problem with going by the semi vs. full QH. it's kind of a gullet measurement then the bar angles tend to flatten out as the gullet gets wider but no indication of other...

    The Navajo is meant to be folded in half.
    Years ago team ropers used a folded Navajo under a neoprene pad or the wool felt blended pads to keep from burning their horses back. Typically most people...

    Unfiltered. That's easy!

    The guy was fired from reining trainers for a reason.
    The horses he does show go to a reining trainer, not him.

    No there is no option unfortunately if the rock in the tree is the issue. I believe if it was just the skirts being tight over the back then the soreness will show over the spine. If it is the tree...

    A bigger horn is a slower horn. Less turns with more surface area to slow the rope when you run it.
