Is that a dressage saddle? It looks like it to me but maybe I am confused ... if it is then you would need a shorter girth.

Because it's the love child of a dressage saddle and a jumping saddle. :)

haha well put Stormy. An all purpose saddle is designed to have the forward seat of a jumping saddle so you can get out of it when jumping, but have a deeper seat and longer billets and stuff like that

To measure for a girth, the saddle with a pad should be placed on the horse. A measuring tape is then used to measure from the middle hole of the billet on one side, under the horse's belly, to the middle billet on the other side.
