English Tack Needed

So Im looking to get myself a basic english setup. As long as it's usable, I'm okay with it. I don't have a huge budget (stupid college) but if you have/know of anyplace let me know. Here's what I need:

-Horse Sized Bridle
-Double jointed kimberwick bit (I borrowed one at the old barn and Diesel loved it. May have been a Myler but I'm honestly not sure what it is called
-English Saddle! I am a 15.5 in Western so I believe I should be looking for a 16.5 or 17?
-Breeches. How do I size them? Im a size 8 in pants....
-Schooling Gloves
-English Pad (shaped/contoured to fit saddle. Preferably not square)

Saddle, bridle, and bit are the most important. Im interested in everything really. Let me know what you have :)

I might be able to help you out.
I've got some extra stuff that came with something else I bought and I don't need it so i've been thinking of selling it. It's all in good shape but does need cleaned/oiled since it hasn't been used in awhile.
I've got a horse size bridle and two sets of braided reins, one thin and one thick. I'd take $25.00 (Bit not included unless you need it, i'd take $5.00 for it)
Shipping probably wouldn't be much since I'm in Montana too.
Also have a breastplate and martingale (I think?) I'll throw in for free.
Pictures below. Also, check Craigslist for Montana in the farm/garden section, I believe I've seen a couple of English saddles for sale on there in the last few days.

Where in Montana are you?
I will take it, I'd like the bit too.
PM me your info and I will send you a check (if that works for you)

I've actually sent both of them emails. :) Waiting to hear back though I think the second one is going to be too small for me.

If you're a 15.5" western, then it's more likely that you need a 17.5-18" saddle, especially if it's an All Purpose that has a deeper seat. If you're looking at a Close Contact saddle that is relatively flat in the seat, you could do 17-17.5".
