    I completely forgot about this thread. Thanks for the great info guys! I saw one on ebay that was an awesome deal, but I missed the end of the auction because I got busy here at work - bummer.
    I can't exactly remember what size my current saddle is... I just moved up from a 15 1/2" to a 16" western saddle, and if I remember correctly English saddles run a bit bigger?? I can't for the life of me remember.
    Anyway, thanks again for the great info! I think I will just probably have to buy a "new" used one. I really can't stand the darn pads.

    If you're in a 16" western, then you'll need a 17.5-18" English saddle. You want to fit a hand (4 fingers) in front and behind you at the same time, without having to squish your fingers.

    Just keep in mind that most people ride in English saddles that are too small for them, lol. 17-17.5" is the most common ladies adult size around for CC saddles today.

    I WISH I could fit into an 18", lol. Right now, I'm lucky to squeeze into an 18.5" CC or 19" AP... ugh.
