Okayy I know that the seat size depends on the rider, but I know they also shouldnt go past the last rib.
I'm trying to get my ponyy (Star) a saddle sorted out, (I am getting a saddle fitter to fit her in the new year now) But still I am curious, about what sorta size saddle we can get away with, like seat size. She is 14.2hh and an arab x whatever my other pony is which I think is some sort of native, but my pony is more like an arab than what shes crossed with. I am fairly tall, I'm 5ft7 and I weigh about 10stone, but I'm not actually fat =/
Anywayyy what I want to know is what size seat you think we need? As I would say personally myself I need a 17.5, but in the tackshop I went to look at saddles a few days ago said I couldnt have bigger than a 17inch on a 14.2hh. Baring in mind my pony is 3 years old, and should grow some more. But yeah what do you think? I'll attach a picture of my other pony, as her saddle is a 17inch, and personally I dont really like it, as I feel like my bum is hanging off it :L
Feel free to tell me about your experiances especially if you have 14.2hh! It will really help alot. Thankk youuuuu. Okay theres a few pics. Tell me what you think?
Btw the pony in the pictures isnt the one I want a saddle for, thats Lexi, shes also 14.2hh, and is Star's mum.
Also just to add my friend has a 14hh pony and he came with a 18inch seat saddle =/ Nevertheless he did buck. alot.
THE LAST PICTURE IS THE HORSE THAT I WANT THE SADDLE FOR.
