It depends on so many things. The Dever saddle I'm using is XW, and I lined that up next to sarahandrieu's Kent and Masters with an XW gullet in and when you looked at the D rings they looked about the same, but the panels of the K&M were much thicker and had a more square profile at the top, whereas the Dever panel follows the tree better. The result is the Dever sits nicely on Talin and the K&M is far, far too narrow. I'd probably need an XXXW one of those at least.
Afraid I can't help with where to get either, I got the Dever from Henry's owner, she had it made to measure for Henry and he hated it! ;D
Good luck Jen, I have been looking seriously for 3 months now for exactly the same thing and found nothing. There were loads about when I was skint!! If I find any I'll send you the link xx Oh, and I've given up saddle buying until the spring.
im looking at working hunter or vds, brown and 17 inch,
I've got a black VSD if that's any good....
The truth is, I'd rather be with my horses than with most people. I'd rather scrub buckets than scrub dishes. I'd rather go to a tack shop than go to a shopping mall. I'd Rather clean a stall than clean my house, and I much prefer horse sh** to BULLSH**..
I have a Farrington brown working hunter which is wide ish it used to belong to Annie my old mare. If you like I can post some pics tomorrow, I could try to put a ruler against it or something. I think it was med wide. I am a bit too knackered to measure it now
