[QUOTE=thenrie;1709617]Old thread, but something no one has mentioned is that the seat measurement on an Aussie saddle is different than on a western saddle. A 15" western seat is equivalent to a 17" Aussie seat.
2" difference would make it a bit large. That's more a Western to "English" conversion. Western to Stock isn't that much.
I ride a 15.5" Western (if I can find one), but usually have to settle for 16". I ride a 16.5" Stock saddle and it fits like dream.
They're always going to be bigger and stronger so you better always be smarter. (One of my grandfather's many pearls of wisdom)
