I’m searching for a MW type saddle as I’m currently riding a Welsh cross and a Percheron cross … so my OTTB saddles aren’t working.
Found an Antares that I would consider a true wide (which is a rare find). It’s got a 5” dot to dot measure and a very wide angle to it.
My concern is that a true wide Antares should have AO2 or AO2 (or even just the A0) stamped on it. This leads me to question if some “saddle fitter” has “widened” it …… which only works on saddles made to be adjustable , which Antares are not. If this is the case the saddles tree will be extremely compromised and I don’t want to touch it.
I’ll give you the numbers and maybe an expert can tell me if these numbers add up to a saddle that should be quite wide.
I think some are worn off right here

Then on the billet guard
Any insight ? Thanks !
