    Smile Hello from Ontario

    Good morning. I've been riding since I was 5 (now 58) receiving formal English training for a few of my formative years. I've only owned one horse in all those years (half-Arab mare) but when I retire when I turn 60 my husband and I hope to buy a small farm and a couple of horses (and perhaps a pony for the grandchildren). I'll keep one English saddle but expect to do most of my riding in a Western or something similar. I've been reading a bit about Aussie saddles. Because it's been so long since I've been active with horses I'm wondering about the size of saddle I should be buying. If I find a good deal, do I buy it without fitting it to my future horses? I know of someone at work who is selling her Western and Aussie saddles. My intention is for pleasure riding now. The size of seat is mentioned. I assume that's determined by my size (how is that measured?). I really appreciate your comments going forward. Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum to fit the saddle to you measure from the back of the seat to the button on the saddle front for the horse any saddle should have space above the withers hope this helps
