English saddle Size. Please Reply

So I need some replys by tomorrow, so please come up with some to help my question!?

I have an english saddle I am selling and I thought I knew how to measure it but someone called and asked how I measured it and told me I did it wrong. I want some information on this, so I looked it up. Please tell me if this is right or wrong.

First I measured from the front to back- that was 16.5 inches. I was told this was wrong so I measured from the nail to the center of the back.....that was 15 inches. But when reading on the internet I thought that the second way was actually suppose to be a bigger number....I'm really not sure...kind of confused.

Measure A to B in the photo on that page. B is in the middle of the seat, behind the middle of your rear end. Yes, it should be longer than the fornt to back measurement.

Lol, it is the best diagram I've been able to find! Lol I've got a whole "saddle fitting" folder in my favorites, but most just give you written instructions, instead of graphics or photos. How lame is that? Lol

Oh good. I found out my saddle was 17 inches! I was wrong.....I said 16.5.....oh well......But this lady called me to buy it and said she wanted it for her 6 year old...I assured her it would be too big but she seemed to think otherwise....She also wanted me to Lower my price and ship it to her in wyoming. :roll:
