15 inch Barrel Saddles Full QH Bars

Western Saddle Bars

Western saddles are typically offered with either full quarter horse bars or semi-quarter horse bars. A saddle with full quarter horse bars is designed to fit a horse with a wide, fairly flat back. A saddle with semi-quarter horse bars is designed to fit a horse with a medium-sized back. The primary difference between the two sizes is in the angle at which the bars are positioned and the width of the gullet.

Gullet Measurement

The gullet of the saddle is the area between the top of the horse's withers and the underside of the pommel. It is measured from concho to concho at the front of the saddle below the pommel. The pommel is the front of the saddle and has the horn sitting on top of it. A saddle with full quarter horse bars will typically measure 7 inches across the gullet. A saddle with semi-quarter horse bars normally has a gullet measurement of 6 3/4 inches.some brands also do

When you are looking at the saddle from the front, a saddle with semi-quarter horse bars will appear to be narrower with a steeper angle created between the skirts and the gullet. A saddle with full quarter horse bars will appear to be wider and will be sitting flatter than a comparable saddle with semi-quarter horse bars.
