While you may have an idea of how big your saddle is, do you know how to measure it? There are some general guidelines to follow when measuring the seat size of your saddle. The width your sit bone is measured from the point where your knees meet to the point between your buttocks. Your riding style, build, and other can affect the size of your saddle. To find the right size saddle for you, take a seat in a larger saddle than your normal size and measure your sit bone.

You can scan your horse's conformation to determine the saddle size. If your horse has a narrow wither, you may need to add additional padding behind the saddle bars. A shoulder bridge pad should be placed behind the saddle bars. A medium-sized tree should be sufficient for horses of average height. A narrow-withered horse should wear a wide-tree saddle. It should be at most two fingers wide between the horse's withers and the cantle.

You can measure the width of your English saddle by placing your hand between the pommel & the saddle skirt. You will measure the distance from the saddle's nailhead to the center of its cantle. This measurement should be in half-inch increments. A wider saddle will be an Extra Wide/XW saddle. You may need to adjust the width of your fist. Once you have determined the correct measurement for your English saddle it will be much easier and more straightforward to purchase a saddle.

When choosing a saddle for your horse, consider your size and your riding style. A shallow saddle will fit a small, thigh-high rider, while a deep one will suit a big, tall adult. Although they are not precise, saddle size charts can help you double-check the measurements. They won't tell exactly how large or small your sitting bone is so get measurements from two people.

To accurately measure the saddle size of horses, you can use a wire measurement tool. The measuring instrument is made of a 16 inch-long piece stiff wire that can be mold to the shape of your horse and then retain its shape after being removed. The best wire is either soldered or coated. Its eight-inch long point can be used to accurately measure a horse’s wither size. The wire should contact the horse's skin and be flat and parallel to the saddle's back.

When measuring your saddle, make sure to include the seat size and the cantle size. The finished saddle seat is smaller that the tree seat size. It all depends on what type of saddle you are getting and how the manufacturer made it. A slick seat will be three to 5 inches shorter than a full-padded one. However, if your seat size is longer, consider buying a saddle with a longer fender.

You can also measure your gullet. This is an essential component of an English saddle. The gullet is the part below the fork that rests on the horse's withers. The size of your saddle will depend on the gullet width and its angle. The proper gullet height is approximately two to four fingers above a saddle fork. You can also measure your horse's gullet by placing a flexible wire on top of the horse's legs. The wire should bend into an arch shape.
