What size western saddle would I be ?
I was just wondering if my English saddle is an 18. What size seat would I need in a western saddle?
Between 15 and 16, I'd say. I was told I'd need an 18-18.5 in English if I were to start and I ride in a 16" western.

I would guess a 17, but that is truly a guesstimate. I will depend upon the type of saddle. I think Barrel saddles folks get smaller ones.....and different seats sit differently. However, I will say I ride in a 17 english and use a 16 Western. That is where I am guessing you would need a 17.
My english saddle is a 17.5 and fits like a glove, my western saddle is a 17 and it's HUGE! :-P I like it that way though, it's comfortable. It's just for trails and bumming around so it doesn't need to be perfect. If I wanted to do barrels, I'd probably get a 15.
I agree with everyone else, if your english saddle is an 18, I'd go with a 16 western.
