What saddle size do you use?

English-19 (I can use an 18, but prefer the 19!)

Dressage - 17
Western - 16
And I'm not actually sure on the flat saddle...

It depends on the brands for me...
My current English saddle is a 17(Thornhill), but I just put a new saddle on layaway and it's an 18(Toulouse).
As for western, I don't own one yet, but I've put one on layaway as well...It's a Tucker and I want to say a 17". I sat in a couple others that ranged from 16-17.
My butt obviously doesn't want to pick a shape and stay there LOL

My Wintec Isabell dressage is a 17", and my Collegiate close contact is a 16.5". If I ever get a western saddle it will likely be a 15".

My western saddle is a 15 though my next one might be a 14.5 because I like them snug.

I have no idea on English. The last time I rode an English saddle was years ago and the saddle that I had didn't fit me.

I ride mostly my Billy Cook which is a 16". My Circle Y is also 16".
I do have a Collegiate Dressage that is 17" and a Crosby that I believe is a 16.5". I haven't ridden in either of these saddles in years.

western = 16inch
dressage = 18 inch.

pretty straightforward, direct across the board size relation.
