Default The haflinger saddle dilemma

Hello everybody,
I just was given one of the horses I started by her owner, it is a haflinger and I am now in front of a serious headache when trying to find fitting tack. She is deceptively wide for a horse that small, has a forward girth area and almost no withers. Most saddles simply slip on her back, except an old English saddle that I used to start her at the time. I am not really comfortable with it and the fit is not quite right, but it stays on at least. Now that she is mine I wanted to buy a nice roping saddle so I could use her to rope a little bit (even though she is quite small she is pretty brave and loves the stock) as well as pony other horses that I break. Now if you have any ideas on a brand or type of roping saddle that would fit I would truly be grateful! From the measures I took a fqhb will probably not be wide enough.... Maybe an old type from the 80' would fit... Or is there any brands that have wider tree angles?

Thank you a lot!

Ali, you might want to google "haflinger saddle". You will get some results, maybe they are useful. Of course, you always could contact a saddle maker/ saddle tree maker. Good luck.
