Wondering what kind of saddle I have, pics included

Hello! I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction of the brand of my western saddle. I am an english rider who bought a western saddle for trails a few years back. I have always wondered if I have a China knockoff or something pretty decent, but since western saddles are so different from english, I have a hard time deciding. The thing that makes me think it may be lower end is there is no brand markins or tags that I can find. It seems to be well made - not flashy, but not el cheapo. Again, I am inexperienced in the western world so my terminology may be off...
It has a medium sized horn and an upright pommel. The rear has an acorn and leaf 'tooling' and the seat has rainbow stitching (but boy, its an awfully big saddle to be youth?!) and the horn cap has a flower on it. I have no idea if that helps
I have looked under the saddle, under flaps, and in the back and can't find anything! Anyone got any ideas? I dont know how you measure western saddles or else I'd tell ya what size it is.
Don't mind the mini saddle!

I measure from the base of the pommel to the stitching on the cantle.

I have no idea what brand it might be, it is hard to tell with the other saddle sitting on top, but if I had to make a quick guess it looks similar to reining saddle.

Me too!!!!

The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being...If you never love a horse, you will never understand.

Haha thanks it was at the Houston rodeo for $80 I think. They have them in late march, it was amazing...well worth the trip! I realize how much of a shot in the dark finding my saddle brand is, but I would love to know.
