You may already know the size of your saddle. But do you know how much to measure your saddle seat? These are the guidelines you should follow when measuring your saddle's size. The width of your sit bone is the width between your buttocks and the point where your knees meet. Your riding style and build may affect the size of your saddle seat. To find out how large your saddle seat is, try it on with a slightly larger saddle than your usual size. Then measure the width of your sit bone.

You can scan your horse's conformation to determine the saddle size. If your horse's wither is narrow, you might need to add padding between the saddle bars. You should also place a shoulder bridge pad behind the saddle bars. A medium-sized tree should be sufficient for horses of average height. A wide-tree saddle is best for a narrow-withered horse. It should be between the cantle of the horse and his withers at least two fingers wide.

You can measure the width of your English saddle by placing your hand between the pommel & the saddle skirt. Measure the distance between your nailhead (or the center of the saddle cantle) and the saddle's width. This measurement should be in half-inch increments. A wider saddle is an Extra Wide/XW saddle, so you may need to adjust your fist width. It will be easier to find the right measurement for your English saddle.

When choosing a saddle to fit your horse, take into account 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. Saddle size charts are not exact, but they can help you double-check your measurements. They won't tell exactly how large or small your sitting bone is so get measurements from two people.

A wire measuring device can be used to accurately measure the horse's saddle. The measuring tool is made from a 16-inch long piece of . It can be molded to the horse's form and then retained its shape when it is 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, be sure to include the size of the cantle as well as the seat size. The finished saddle seat size is smaller than the tree seat size. It all depends on what type of saddle you are getting and how the manufacturer made it. A slick, padded saddle will typically be three to five more inches than a full-padded. If your seat size is greater than a full-padded saddle, you may want a saddle with a longer foot.

You can also measure your gullet. This is an essential component of an English saddle. The gullet is the portion below the fork that rests on horse's withers. The gullet's angle and width determine the saddle size. 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.
