The Saddle looks pretty wide as in a FQH Bar.

When you measure, find the top of the Bar, you can feel it thru the fleece, that would be where the gullet is measured, hard to tell by the attached pic if the tape is in the correct pace.

Ok, thanks. If I measure from the inside behind the conchos (from screw to scew)I have a measurement of roughly 7.5 inches. Does that sound right?r

Center to center is generally the middle of the bars, hard to be accurate there.

The top of the bar is the Gullet Width and the bottom is called the Bar Spread.

Its hard to tell for sure from the picture, but it looks like the bars are pretty well angled out, and with a gullet that wide, I would have to vote that it IS FQHB

I measure from where the pencil roll on the gullet meets the skirts. OK some saddles don't have that extra piece of craftsmanship but you get the idea. The conchas denote the most forward point of the bars.
