Just a couple places, I don't feel like checking every store haha.
Interesting. I guess it depends on brand. I checked those I know out of curiosity (like Circle Y, Big Horn, Tex Tan) and couldn't find any 1/2 sizes. Thanks for the links, horseluver!

Thanks everyone... So if a 16" is mostly equivalent to a 18" english and my horse can only carry a 17.5" max saddle english... Should I get a 15" for his sake?

May I ask why he can only carry a 17.5? I might have missed that in your last post.

Does she have really short back? Why do you have such limitations?

I think he must have a short back... An english saddle is not meant to go past the horses last rib as its then putting pressure on the wrong part of the back.
To not go past his last rib he can only have 17.5" max. So what do you think I should do? Try find a 15.5" or have a 15".
I am 5ft5 and I weigh 9stone7(about 133lbs)..
Sorry 4 so many questions.. You guys are great

With these parameters I'd think 15 should be OK for you. Hmmmm.... Do you have pics of your horse with the english saddle on?

Umm I do but only on my phone and I can't them across.. Il post a pic of my horse though if that'l help. If I put a tape measure (sounds weird) starting infront of me and through my legs to the back.. Like a seat and see how much room I have with it at 15" length will that be about same as a western saddle?
Sounds very weird but I know what I mean
