I have this saddle out on trial for my daughter. She's outgrown her current 15" so I'm thinking of moving her up to a 16" or 16 1/2". This one is a 16 1/2", medium tree. Anyone have an opinion on fit? Or suggestions of another particular brand/model pony saddle with a larger seat size?

I cannot comment on the fit of the saddle but it that is your daughter's normal stirrup length it looks like the flap is too long. Pictures with your daughter sitting in it would be helpful along with the saddle being girthed. The saddle needs to fit both the pony and kid (with some growing room for kid)

The flaps are a bit long. I wanted to get some pics of her on the saddle but it was so cold outside my camera wouldn't work.
