16" seat = to 14"....
If you have a 16 inch english or aussie saddle that doesnt equal to a 14inch in western? Right? My thought is no, but someone just asked me and I had to find out.

No i dont believe so

travlingypsy 02-11-2009 03:10 PM

I didnt think it would. But how would you measure a western, wouldnt it be the same as the other kinds?

I do believe that if you ride a 16" in english you'll generally be 14" in western (subtract 2 if going from english to western, add 2 if going from western to english)
Though some saddle makers have larger/smaller seats.

are aussie seats basicly the same as english seats?

appylover31803 02-11-2009 10:39 PM
