    Thanks! Kinda a weird way to measure an english saddle. But I had no idea that saddles are made by hand.

    That is just for Australian stock saddles, not english saddles.

    This is what they said "and English saddles are measured from the button in the front, diagonally back to the top of the cantle."

    Ahh I see. I misunderstood your other post.

    It is a bit odd.

    I always thought it was from pomel (sp?) to cantle

    Australian and English saddles are ~ 2 sizes larger then Western.

    If your Aussie saddle is a 16 then it should translate to a 14 Western.

    I have english 17 and western 15. However it depends on saddle too - some are deeper, some more flat. With aussie I heard different opinions: some say should be 16, some 17 (like english), so not sure.. :)
