Cutting saddles need to be loose but barrel saddles not nearly so much.
A trail/ranch/pleasure saddle should have you sitting to the cantle for support but not hanging over and there should be ~3-4" from your tummy to the swell. Anything more and it's too big, less and it's too tight.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
