just as a general rule of thumb. And IM NOT A SADDLE FITTER SO ALTHOUGH IT MIGHT LOOK RIGHT GET IT CHECKED.
Three fingers between pommel and wither when someone is mounted
Two fingers between gap under cantle and horses back when mounted
The flaps shouldnt impede the sholder and you should be able to fit ur fingers all the way around the flaps when you are mounted.
If its a decent saddle and ur saddler says it doesnt fit most saddlers will offer trade ins or part ex.
