Help with Girths?

I need to get a girth for my horse and I'm not sure what size he would need. I know you can't know for sure but I was wondering what people would give me an idea what size he would need....

He is a Saddlebred, so he is not very stocky but also not super skinny, probably average. He is 15.2 hands. Oh and we are talking English Girths here. Could someone give me an idea around what size he would most likely be?

Impossible to guess, we don't even know if the saddle has long or short billets. As Joe said, put the saddle on and measure.

To expound on that, put the saddle on the horse and measure from the 3rd hole on one side of the billets to the 3rd hole on the other side. That will give you an idea of the size of the girth you need.
