So a saddle I'm looking at is an 18" saddle and I measure 22.5". Is it a good fit? Or too big?

Way to big
You should be able to fit 4 fingers between your butt and the cantle
? When you sit in a saddle dressage or hunter when your stirrups are set correctly (the metal bottom of the stirrup should hit your ankle bone) your patella should be about 1-2 inches away from the edge of the saddle
By 22.5", I mean my seat measurment.
