Would love it if any of you could give me some help please!
I am in the process of buying a saddle for my youngster who is 4 in two months! She is 14.2/3 and still growing and is an arab x! I got told that cos shes an arab that she cant have any bigger than a 17 inch saddle... Now is this true? I have been searching for 17inch saddles and I dont mind riding in them at all, but I have been offered a brand new 17 and a half wintec for quite a decent price its brand new but cos its an old style its really cheap.
But basically, what I wanna know is, cos of her height and breed is it true she cant have a saddle bigger on her back than 17inch? I would be intrested to know tbh! Or even to find a way to measure how long her back is would come in handy? I am buying this saddle from a saddlery shop, so I can get it fitted, but theres no point them coming to try it on, if its gonna be too long for her back in the first place is it? The thing is they only have this one saddle in my price range too =/
Im sorry if this dont really make sense, but basically the main thing is, can a 14.2hh have a saddle that is 17 and a half inch seat size? Or would it go past the last rib and be too long for her?
