I Ride in both a 16.5" and 17" saddles and both are comfortable, and fit my ponies etc.
My leg length and weight, and what everyone has said, from saddle fitters to shop keepers, that I'm 'supposed' to be in a 16.5"
I got this new horse, she's 16hh, none of my saddle fit her *sigh* so I'm buying a new one.
What size should I get?! Would the 16.5" look small and funny on such a big horse. (yes I know I will get one that fits her etc. etc.)
Does anyone have photo's of a 16.5" saddle on a 16hh-ish horse?! Or bigger!
Also, would the 16.5" help my seat and legs etc?!
