Reining vs Cutting saddle

If my cutting saddle was a 16" and I found it too big, switching to a reining saddle with a "pocket", should I go with a smaller size? Or the same?

I would say that the reining saddle sizes run very much the same as most western saddles. As far as I know, Barrel saddles you would get a little smaller. I have a 16" reining saddle, and previously had a 16" Circle Y that was a pleasure saddle. YOu might want to try a 15.5, since your current 16 is a little big.

Have fun shopping.what are you looking at?

Hey, I'm ordering a Continental. I actually did order one but I ordered the wrong colour so I am re-ordering. I did get the 15.5 the 1st time around and I like it a lot but ordering wrong sort of scared me and made me wonder if I had to sell it (which I don't because the company helps you out and will re-order) 16's are easier to sell . . .so should I go a 1/2 inch bigger. I mean, if the 15.5 is quite similar to my 15 trainer that I like, 1/2 is nothing, right? Eeeeeee, I hope I'm right because it's done now, lol, lol. Maybe I better stop losing weight here on my diet. Lol.

I went threw this whole size thing a while back because I have lost so much weight. I ended up buying another 16" because it had a deep seat and is snug. Well its too big so I put bucking rolls on it and its a little better. Wish I would have stuck with it and just got a 15" like my mind told me. But if I would have gotten the 15" I would have been on a waiting list and the 16" was in stock. So....I got the 16"

Get the saddle that will fit you. Don't buy a saddle in the wrong size because you think it'll be easier to sell! Unless you're one that really doesn't care too much about the size, you'll regret buying the 16" when youpre swimming in it. Especially if you're trying to lose weight

Cutting saddles generally are picked bigger. I ride in a 16.5" cutter and a 15" barrel, a 15.5" Reiner...
