I think my big issue is that in my area, people don't know a whole lot about English saddle seats and buy 15 and 16 inch saddles, thinking it will be like their western saddle, and then learn that it is very different and too small and then try to sell.

I'm singing the saddle searching blues....

19" would definitely be huge and there won't be any security at all. I just sold my 18" Stubben Siegfried because it was just too big and it has taken me months to convince myself of this because it was in SUCH beautiful condition. I tried to be in denial about the size. But I also ride a 16 1/2" dressage saddle which is PERFECT for me so I found the Stubben collecting dust and I finally decided what's the point in having it when I don't ride it. So I sold it just a couple of weeks ago and found a really good condition 17" Stubben Loreley. What a difference just the one inch makes. And hey, Delfina, no need to hide. There are others of us who ride "kiddi saddles". And I'm no kid or even that petite. I celebrate my 39th next week but I'm a 5'11" rail. I have no butt. I slapped some 60" leathers on my 16 1/2" dressage Crosby and I feel so good in that saddle, I could jump fences in it. I think it's the deep dressage seat. I've actually opened up my thoroughbred on our make shift track in this saddle and let him fly and I wasn't going anywhere. I LOVE this saddle. Anyway to the OP, you definitely look like a 17-17 1/2" candidate. There are a ton of Stubbens on Ebay and many of the older ones go for very reasonable prices, like under $300. You'll find one.
