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

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.

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.

The Western Saddle

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

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.. :)
