You might want to include the type of tree width and also seat size. Best of luck!

As I've said before, I am 'nul' about equitation. But my teenage daughter is the one with horses and she is looking to buy a western saddle for her new horse. She's back later today from being at the rodeo ranch for the weekend so I can show her the photos. It says a 'show' saddle, does that mean it's not an every day leisure saddle? Sizes would be good to know. Please don't bite my head off :-ss

Lisleoise - a Show saddle would be perfectly good for every day riding as far as comfort goes.
The silver decoration "pretties up" a saddle for showing !

Size of saddle and tree width are important, as bbnaz says - a small person could move around too much in a 17" western saddle, for example.
Mine is 15" (you've seen what size I am !), but in the end, you need to actually sit in the saddle to see if it feels right. Even better would be to try it out : you'd need to know if it fitted the horse first.

Good luck, Davanne :YMCOWBOY:

Thanks Blaze, I'll wait to hear what size it is (my daughter is quite chunky and about the same size bottom as me - and you've seen me!) . It looks beautiful (the saddle, not my bottom!).

Hi Ladies,
I cannot find the paperwork for this saddle but if I remember correctly it is a "Ralhide Tree and 16 " seat" I will keep looking,
I was size 14/16 when we bought it, so not slim.
Does anyone know how to measure a western saddle?

As you know Blaze, there's a few sites which offer various methodology for the measuring of saddle / horse combinations. The link I've included is the one of personal preference, and the downloadable templates when transferred to wood - actually do the job!

The paper template can also be used as the former for making gullet templates out of wire coat hangers.

Thanks Ann, we have a Norton on loan to try at the moment. Thinking of buying that one as it is inexpensive and the horse (will be next wednesday) only 4 years old and so has a bit of growing still to do.
