I'm looking at buying an English saddle on ebay. I've been trying to find a post on size/person size just to get an idea but I've come up lacking any meaningful information. At our barn, all of our saddles are have 17" seats and they're definitely too big for me (I can fit more than my whole hand between me and the cantle).
I'm looking at 15" saddles and I was just trying to see if you guys thought there'd be any way that I might fit in a saddle most people consider a "Youth/Child" (15") size considering:
-I'm male, 5'6", and weigh ~120-125.
-Athletic build/tiny butt haha.
-I'm looking at close contact saddles and I know one's seat size might be different than it would for a dressage saddle.
For comparison, and I really only want to know for the sake of sizing purposes, what do you ride in and how "big" are you.
I want to say in advance, I appreciate all of your help and thank you!
