Be sure to check out your knee clearance as well - put your leg in jumping position in the store (ask to try some leathers and irons if you need) and make sure your knee isn't too near the edge of the flap. You should also be sitting in the middle of the saddle, it shouldn't push you onto the pommel or too far back, and your pelvis should be neutral.
    I will do that. I don't want to end up in the same mess again

    Definitely a good idea to get one you can try first! Good luck!

    Yes, stay away from those. May be there are exceptions, but all saddles made there (and in Vietnam) I run into were total junk.

    Horsey, why wouldn't you look into the used one? You can get a nice brand for the same price.

    I actually would prefer a used one but 19-20" is hard to find unless you ride saddleseat

    Hmmm.... I see... Yeah, that's the problem, I agree. You can try to contact Carpenoctumstable (from this forum). I believe she has bigger saddles from time to time. I know her in person, actually, and she's very nice to deal with.

    Typically you measure your thigh to figure out what seat length you need. Sit in a chair. Measure from your rear on the side to your knee. Try a bunch of saddles, even if they are too expensive. Then when you find what you want, you can go online and shop for used ones that are less expensive.

    Goodluck to you. Finding the right saddle is very important for balance, function and comfort for both you and your horse. BTW, he looks so much happier in the snaffle!
