Red face FQHB and Semi QHB?!

I have a petite 14.2hh Morab mare that I'm going to start competing WP with; only problem? What size would she be?! She is currently using the the medium narrow gullet (I have an exchangeable gullet saddle, and she's right on the line of narrow/medium narrow), so what would that translate to in western saddle lingo?

Pictures would help. I'm GUESSING SQHBs. To make matters worse, however, each maker has their own idea of what SQHB, FQHB, Arabian etc means...

Oh god. Glad I'm doing it through my tack shop so I can try it out first and make sure it fits. So there isn't anything smaller then Semi QH bars?

What pictures do you need?

Some saddle makers have saddles with Arabian bars. We have one young Morab (?) that is probably going to have to have the Arabian bars. Right now, he's only three and hasn't been started yet, but when he is ready for his first ride, we are probably going to have to get yet another saddle...

Lol. I already have too much tack; so much that I'm keeping some in my closet.

I'm not paying for this one or the matching breastplate/bridle though, so I should be a little excited. :p
