Measuring English saddle

Yeah, that may be a dumb question to ask, but... I have 2 saddles A/P and dressage. Dressage is size 18, and A/P states size 17 (I bought it new from Dover). Now since 17 is supposed to be too small I was thinking if I have to sell the saddle. But it doesn't feel 17. So I measured it. I measured from front to back and from pin to the back. Interesting enough it's BIGGER than my dressage saddle. So how come? Should I measure differently?

Always measure from the pin diagonally back to the center of the cantle. That will give you an accurate measurement for your saddle :)

As far as I know, it's only western saddles that measure differently?

For an english saddle you measure from the front of the pin/button to the centre of the cantle.

Western and side saddles are measured differently.

Thanks, folks! I measured like that and it's bigger. I guess the saddle maker screwed up.
