Being a plus size princess, voluptuous vixen, or big-sexy cowboy usually means one thing…We need BIG Saddles to fit our big ASSets! I don’t know how you feel but I think that the big saddles are extremely hard to come by! I can hardly find a saddle with a seat bigger than a 17″ and when I do find one, it’s for a horse that is 17 miles wide! Well it’s a fact that not everyone with a big butt rides a draft horse…so where does that leave us? Yup annoyed and saddle-less.

You can also call your favorite local tack store, and ask if they have any saddles, new or used in your size and budget. Most tack stores are happy to work with you to find exactly what you need. If you are worried about special ordering a saddle in your size (like me) ask about their the store’s special order return policy. Most stores are happy to take back a special order saddle for a small restocking fee.
Also be sure to keep an eye out for tack sales and swaps in your area. Yes, large saddles are hard to come by, but you never know…you just might luck out and find exactly what you are looking for.
So don’t give up hope, there are larger seat saddles available you just have to be patient and keep looking!
