    Default Barnsby Diablo Saddles?

    Anyone ride in this saddle? Would it be a good choice for a high withered TB who is fussy about saddle fit?

    I don't know about the Diablo, but I have two Schokemoehle's (spelling?), one with an extra forward flap, and they fit my TBs - both high & medium withers - just fine. Love them!

    I love Barnsby!

    I also have two Schokemohle's (I can't spell it either) and they tend to fit a flat backed with wither horse beautifully. Love the leather on them - soft but wears like iron. I consider them a saddle that isn't just good for the rider (cushy on your butt) but also very kind to horses. Fits many horses and isn't one of those 'fancy' brands that people seem to be forced out of after riding for a couple of months because the horse has inexplicable persistant back pain.

    That sounds like what I am looking for. Smart Pak has a really good deal on the Diablo though...wondering if it fits the same? I am also curious if it would put me in more of a chair seat?
