So depressed. I was in a great mood I finally got the saddle ive been waiting for the last few months.
It cost around a grand and was a huge hassle to get because there just are no draft horse saddles anywhere near here.
Everybody told me im a size 16... so I ordered a size 16.
Just now one of the guys from work with horses told me it looks small.
so Ive done some research and according to the internet its a few inches too small.
It seems like there should be about 4 inches from the front swell to the crotch or two inches in front and two in the back.
Theres only two inches total between me and the front swell if that and thats with my back tight up against the back of the saddle.
I dont think they will take the saddle back and even if they did I dont have time to reorder another, it would take till the end of summer.
Any of ya horse fellas have any advice, or will the saddle be big enough for me with that little room in front ?
It does feel not to bad to sit on but there isnt a whole lot of wiggle room.
Thanks again.

I can measure mine this evening. The biggest thing is are you and the horse comfortable?

You need to feel secure but not crowded.
