17-17.5" is the most common adult ladies size saddle. A lot of people ride in saddles that are too small for them . You should be able to fit a hand's width in front of you and behind you, at the same time, without your 4 fingers being squished.

My daughter is 10 now, 5'3" and a bit chunky, though I wouldn't call her fat. She wears a junior's size 3 or 5 short, girls 16.5 plus. Her 17" AP just fits nicely, and she's not swimming all that much in my husband's 18.5" Stubben AP (the flaps are WAY to big of course, lol). She rides in a 15" Western saddle.

Hmm. I think I will have to keep an eye out for a larger one then. Thanks for the heads up
