    Default Need help figuring out saddle size!

    ...don't you have to measure from the brad/nail head to the center of the cantle when measuring seat size?
    I plan on measuring, I was also hoping to see what kind of info I could get from the saddle code.
    Thanks

    Yes, that is how you measure the seat size, from the nail to the center of the cantle You will also need to know the size (width) of the gullet. To do that you measure from one nail across the gullet to the other nail head. It should be 5-6 inches or so, less if it's a narrow tree, if it's more, it's a wider tree. Hope that helps!
