I bought a saddle online after I'd bought a saddle from a tack shop, so I knew roughly what size to look for - I was lucky the one I bought online fits almost perfectly - in fact it seems to fit better than the other saddle!

"Did I not just use the word 'puzzling'?"

If you buy an English cut saddle, to fit a horse to ride English, over the internet it is a bit like buying a dress suit over the internet - you'll find out if it fits when you try it on.

But a dress suit you only buy to wear on very rare occasions and if you don't like the feel of it, then you can take it off. Whereas a saddle you buy to ride every day.

Western saddle are designed to fit a broad range of horses and are mostly used with a thick under blanket - an English saddle is selected to fit one horse, ideally to be used without any numbnah.
