I've heard lots of different ways to measure a saddle....remember that all trees can vary in size...one "wide" tree can be smaller than another "wide" tree.
Best way is to take a bendable peice of wire and bend it to the shape of your horse's withers...getting the exact measurements. Then measure where the tree would go (you might have to estimate)...so if you get 6.5 inches...that's the approx size you'll need. I'd suggest going maybe half an inch bigger just to be on the safe side though
Also make sure you can return the saddle if it does not fit, or you aren't happy with it
