Depending on your daughter's size (height and weight) a 14" may be appropriate for her ...not for you. If you are trying to get away with a single saddle, you are not doing justice to yourselves or your horse. A saddle that doesn't fit the rider is nearly as bad as one that doesn't fit the horse. You can't get the proper balance in an improper fitting saddle.
If the woman at the tack shop is trying to sell you something she has rather then what you need, I would be looking elsewhere. There is an old adage in sales: "If you haven't got what they want, sell them what you have".
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.
