A gorgeous custom JJ Maxwell Western saddle that has been thoroughly detailed, oiled, and is ready to ride! 


The unusual appearance of this saddle is due to the manufacturer shaving down the front bars all the way to the fork, and rounding them off to reduce the front bar pressure. This does not change the balance of the saddle, or sit heavily behind the shoulder, as long as it is properly positioned. 


15" seat w/ pencil roll edge
6.75" (but fits like a 6.5" gullet), with Equifit SQHB. So, this saddle will fit a horse with more of an "A" shaped straight back, but because the the front bars have been generously filed back - it can fit a horse with large shoulders! This is a rare find, and fits those hard-to-fit horses that don't fit anything else. 

90-degree angle to the gullet 
125-degree angle to the mid-back 
145-degree angle to the loin area The round skirt is "split," called a butterfly, which  gives lots of room for a horse with a short back, and/or big hips for making tight turns.


Weight: 31 lbs
Tree size: Steele Equifit Original SQHB ("J-Bar")
Seat size: 15" slick seat w/ pencil roll cantle
Total saddle length: 25" w/ round butterfly skirt
