    Isn't it the same?
    Don't take my word for it though, but I always assumed it was the same, I am an english rider and have never really dealt with western so maybe it isn't

    I have always gone by the two inches more for an English saddle. So if you are a 14 in Western, it would be a 16 in English. There are other factors that may enter in, but that is the general rule of thumb.

    Thank you so much. I googled my question and I saw the same thing about the rule of thumb.

    Red Tree, they are NOT the same. A 14 inch Western saddle is pretty small . I think you would want a 16 inchh english. I think the two inch thingy is about right.
