saddle look too small?

this video is not the best and exuse me about adjusting. The saddle felt a little off and it probably didn't feel good My husband took this video when I wasn't aware..

Question is...is my saddle too small?
I was told by many that I need a 15"...well this is a 15". I do have muscular thighs which makes them bigger...but what do you think?


not the best....my butt was actually not centered so hard to tell.



and the video..hope it works

oh and infront of my saddle I can fit a fist or 3-4 fingers inbetween.

I just wondered about my thighs...they look rather large in the saddle.

From what I can tell, looks like you fit fine. Are you comfortable? Are you secure? If so then ride on!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

The saddle is a little small from what I can see. I would go to a 16 which will give you a little more room. Nice horse BTW.

(That bug annoys everyone ... Amy)

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

alright. I will get some actual pictures(if I remember) from the sides and back so you guys can see. The first pictures is really bad to be honest.

Tee Hee!!! (bug drama!!! rotfl)

I agree with Iride that you may want to see about a 16" saddle in the future...but I've seen much much much worse fits. I look forward to seeing the side shot pics.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
