No, I haven't but I should think 14" would be pretty small. Mine I think is a 16 inch seat, don't think my fat bum would take much less - although it it didn't have too much of a cantle might be OK, but then I should think weight would be a bit too concentrated in one area. So not much help really!!

I used to have a 16 inch and it fit me ok

I went to Robinsons on Saturday to try some but they only had an 18 inch in. I have a feeling I have sat in a 14 inch before.

I took the stuffed cantle out of my 17 inch close contact and put the solid cantle under the seat at 14 inches and managed to get my bum in it ok so it might be viable.
