So, fitting english saddle to the human is ALOT easier than fitting them to a horse. The main thing about fitting them to a human is to know that the seat length is less about the size of you butt and more about the length of your thigh. You should be able to sit in a saddle and have 4 fingers of room between the back of your butt and the top of the cantle and have 1-2 fingers between the front of your knee and the front of the flap. They measure the seat size of an english saddle by taking the measurement from the top of the cantle to one of the two pins (one on either side) that run through the side of the pommel. I reccommend that you go to a tack store and ask to try a few saddles in varying sizes to get an idea of what seat size you're looking for, as that's the most accurate way to find out, but if you wan't to buy via the internet, you can always ask the seller to measure from cantle to kneeflap to check that length. Hope this helps:) Best of luck finding a saddle!
Peace, Love, and Ponies of all shapes and sizes.
