    Your western saddle looks great!

    You are not to big for your horse, unless, of course, you are eventing, you are probably to big for eventing on your horse.

    Nope, not eventing. Not until I lose atleast 50 lbs, which I am working on.

    Ideally you should have a few inches between the front of your leg and the pommel.

    The western saddle is too small for you. If the english saddle is any smaller, you really shouldn't be riding in it. Wait till you get a new saddle, and make sure the saddle is long enough for you, but not too long for his back :) If that combination is not possible, then you are too big for him.

    Looks like he has a bit more back for a larger saddle. The western one is too small, you don't look comfy in it.
    My heart goes out to you hun. It's so tricky to find a saddle that fits both you and the horse. I spent ages trying to find a decent English saddle as my girl has such a short back western saddles look stupid on her. When you do end up buying your own, get it fitted, just to make sure.
    And I don't think you're doing too much damage atm as you're not running off on trails for hours and hours :)
    Also, love that horse's butt ;)

    Yeah, I know. I know a tack shop that will do a fitting, but I won't be able to purchase until the 1st. ATM we are only doing 60 minutes 1/2 walk and 1/2 trot. Today he had a lot of energy and really wanted to canter, but I held him back. I won't do anything major until I lose weight. I am down 4 more pounds (YAY) and hopefully it will keep coming off so we can keep working together. I absolutely love him.

    What am I saying, I don't know anything about western saddles.
    Don't listen to me, It is better than your English though.
