Step away from the computer,
If your horse has had or is laminitic then keep the feed really simple. Don't feed premix of any kind. Unless you want to spend hours of analysis checking out the volumes of sugar/starch etc

Oaten chaff, with a couple of supplements is often enough.

My 16.2 Warmblood lives on pasture hay and about 2 lge scoops of chaff, a cup of copra and Mag Chl. She is not laminitic, but this is what they feed at the rehab centre for laminitc horses and ponies, so I figure that if she is maintaining weight and has a healthy coat and enough energy for the work then that is all I need to feed.

Out of my way, I am in the midst of a hoo haa monologue
Both of them are older models, the wintec is at least 10 years old and the caprilli is also an older model, not sure how old as I got it pre-owned, but I'd hazard a guess at least 5 years

Both in top condition and appear to sit quite nicely. they get tight once the girth is done up and by the time you put a rider on it's obvious there's quite a bit of pressure.

The weird thing is the wintec had a black gullet, and the caprilli had a red, i tried both today and they both fit about the same. I want to try swapping out the one in the caprilli and see if i can make it work but if i can't I'm going to have to look into different saddles.

The Bates/Wintec are made on cheap plastic trees which is why you are having problems. The plastic eventually stretches, cracks or warps. Shocked Evil or Very Mad

You will need to go to something that has a decent quality tree. Depends on what you are looking for budget, etc. You can't go wrong with Stubben, are excellent quality and will last a lifetime.
I used to use an Edelweis jumping saddle on my old arab, fitted him and every other horse after him perfectly, no changable gullet required Smile
