I'm sorry, I took a closer look at the link and it didn't describe using it the same way that is indicated on the device itself. If you need a new saddle put it on the horses wither in the area as they described in the beginning, when you have established a color size lay the device on a piece of cardboard and carefully outline the inside lines of the device, this will give you a template of your horses withers that you can take saddle shopping with you.

You can do the same with a wire hanger - much cheaper.

I also do one "mid seat" (about 4" from the wither tracing) and one back of saddle (another couple inches back)... then I get a series of three cardboard "forms"... when you put them together at the right spacing (measure with a tape). I then create a "stand" for them with another piece of cardboard so they'll stay upright and I can rest a saddle on them. This will tell me not only if the saddle is the right width, but also if the shape is right for the horse. It's not "perfect" but it's a pretty close indicator.

(I live in an area with no tack stores, so I have to travel to look at gear - this lets me do that without "having" to haul my horse around.... I can take the saddle to try in "in person" but I won't end up taking home anything that REALLY won't fit and wasting time)
