Wanting to go western... help? XD

Well I ride my horse english but I reaaally want to go western. SO here is my dilemma. I have NO idea about FQHB and SQHB etc. I currently ride in a 16.5" seat ambassador dressage saddle, with I'm not sure what the gullet is but it's stamped on there so I'll check in the morning. The main problem I am facing is with the FQHB and SQHB.

My horse is a 17hh Clydie x Throughbred. So obviously he is very stocky and has a wide back BUT he also has a high wither... so yeah :P

Any help is much appreciated
