Old Faithful... saddle too small?

Hey guys,
I have had this synthetic saddle for almost ten years. It is 15''. My mare and I have had many many miles in it... I'm very attached, and it is still in good shape. However, I am NOT the small girl that I used to be. I have grown up! :P
So... opinions, is my saddle too small? It still fits my mare well, but would my position be better in a larger saddle?

Borderline. You don't want your legs jammed up against the forks, yet you don't want to shove your butt against the cantle to make room. Your position is good so if you find your legs seem to be running out of room then it's time to consider another saddle. By then your horse might need a different tree for a better fit.
