Saddle buying frustration...does anyone want to go shopping?

I'm having the most trouble trying to find the perfect saddle for me. Does anyone want to go tack shopping online for me? I really don't have the time to do it myself. Here are my regulations:

1. Must be availiable in a 15".
2. Must have a med. tree.
3. Must be semi-cheap (between 200 and 500)
4. Color must look good on a dark bay horse

Thanks to whoever steps up to the plate!

PS: Can a pony saddle fit a 16.3hh horse? All I see in the SLT catalouge in 15" are pony or youth saddles.

I'm selling a Stubben all purpose saddle, I believe it's a Seigfreid VSS (sp?). It's in fantastic shape and should last forever. It would look great on a dark horse. It's bigger then 15, though. I think like 17? Are you sure you want a 15? That's a pretty small pony saddle! I was going to ebay it but I'll sell it to you instead if you're interested. Here's a pic. The knee rolls look stained because I had just cleaned and oiled it and accidently got them wet.

A pony saddle could fit a 16.3 horse.... but would it fit you?

I think a 15 inch would fit me. I'm 5'3" and weigh around 105. I was told that a 15 inch would fit me. I know a 17 inch wouldn't though. Thanks for helping me, though.

A 15" English saddle is about the size of a 12 or 13: western. Five year old children, ride in that size saddle.

OH! I was riding at a western barn and they said that a 15 inch would fit me. So I guess they thought I was thinking Western. What size would I need if I fit a 15 inch western?

i believe the rule of thumb is that you add 2 inches onto your western saddle size to get your english saddle size.

The best thing to do is go to a tack shop and ask to try out different saddles, thats the only way you're really going to know

You'd need a 17" English.
