While browsing Ebay for saddles, I came across an auction for a English saddle that the seller claimed to be 15 inches, but it really didn’t look that small in the first picture. So I checked out the other pictures and found out they are measuring the wrong way. When measuring a English saddle it should be from the middle of the cantle, to the middle of one of the nail heads on the side of the pommel. I did a little photoshop, and I can guess this saddle is closer to 16.5 inches. That is quite a difference in size!
