What size english saddle do I put my 6y/o in?

I am having a hard time finding a saddle for my 6 yr old? How do I know what size seat? Any ideas of the best english saddle to start her in? My local saddlery doesn't have anything for kids...so I am unfortunately stuck searching online. Any help would be much appreciated.

I would say just a regular 12" english saddle (wintec makes a nice one with a grab handle) unless your daughter is taller than average, then you might need a 14". How tall is she? Does she have long legs or a long torso?

We generally start out our students with a leadline style 12" seat for average 6yo size child.

Child's Leadline Saddle - 12' Seat: Equestrian Saddles: Buford Saddle & Horse Tack Co. - BufordSaddle.com

If they have some riding experience or are a little big for their age, a 14 or 15" will hold most kids till about 9 or 10 like the Charisma by Courbette.

My daughter is the shortest one in her class, so I think the wintec and lead-line saddles you both suggested will work great!! Thanks!!
