    If the person that asked bout the seat size, they said no less then 15" so meaning 15" n up. I guess because it is a general size most people fit.

    But THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE ELSE! I IS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED! :)

    More probable b/c when you get smaller then a 15 you start getting into saddles that do not fit a lot of different horses. Get a saddle that fits you as it will have to be used on a lot of different horses. Most western types like QH. So full QH bars would probable be best. Chances are you will not get one saddle that will work for every horse for every thing you are going to be doing there. Get a good saddle that will hold up with a lot of use. In the end you will probable will end up with several saddles.

    Been waiting to get back here after posting my quick reply, wishing that I had taken more time and given more thought to it.

    I think it's great you want to go to Findlay, it has a great reputation and the people I know who have been there are very knowledgeable horsewomen. A couple are instructors/trainers making their living in the horse world, some are in other professions; however volunteer their time to work with groups that benefit horses and young horsemen.

    My first hand knowledge on being accepted there was only for a summer program for high-schooler's where the applications had to be accompanied by videos, essays, and professional references. There were so many applicants that only the top few were accepted.

    I will try to refrain from using the quick reply feature and one-liners. Thanks to those who corrected me so diplomatically.

    There are some other very good schools here in central Ohio, a friend's niece just graduated from Otterbein, and Ohio Wesleyan (sp?) is very good also.
