English or Western and what type of riding do you do?
In any case, concerning the flex wire, what I have used is two pieces of 2 1/2' of 12 or 14 gauge house wire that you can get at any hardware store. Bend it over his withers to his shape and the second one over the center of his back where the saddle will sit. Carefully remove the wire and trace it on a piece of heavy cardboard. Cut out the cardboard on the traced line and take it to a tack shop to measure against a saddle.
I've successfully done that when it was impossible to take the horse with me.
Next is to determine the seat size for you.
Good luck with finding a saddle!
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.
