It looks to have an Australian girth. The front leather straps on an Australian saddle are normally 1.25 inches, and won't fit into the buckles of an English girth. It took me a long time to get used to Australian girths, but now the only thing I dislike about them is that they are hard to find.

There are converters to western cinches. Unhappily, my horses are slender enough that they don't work well for me, because I couldn't then find a cinch small enough.

Lucky lucky! My girth that came with the saddle is 42 inches. It's way too small, I need a 54. The only problem is the basic girth that came with it in a 54 is like 90 bucks! She's going to have to deal with a too small girth for now!

I didn't like the converter because it was bulky. I bought a dressage girth, because I felt it could keep my saddle in place best. The front buckle was too small on one side... My solution, since it was such a cheap saddle, was to cut the leather a bit (outside of the stitching) on both sides to narrow it down. Works like a dream for me, though I understand people not wanting to mutilate their saddle in this way ;)
