What size saddle?

I'm looking for a western saddle! Im not sure what size I would need and looked online but they all varied! I'm 14, about 5'2, weigh around 106-110 and my horse is a Tennessee walker! Thanks for the help:)

I think you'd be fine in a 14" saddle. You dont want to get something too small that you'll grow out of in a year or two.

Forget shopping online for now. Go to a place that sells saddles and try a few out to get a size that's comfortable for you. Then you need to find out what size will fit your horse. That is more important. If you don't, you'll have a sore backed horse and could do damage. They make templates to find out what size you should get. After all that, then you can shop online for what you want.

At 14 you will grow and if you are used to riding English you will want more room, I would say a 15" Seat would be a good choice.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones
