There are two sizes to consider when buying a County Saddlery saddle. The seat size determines how well the seat will fit the rider. The gullet, or tree, size determines how well the saddle fits your horse. When the saddle fits both the rider and the horse, you have found your saddle.
County Saddlery saddles come in a large array of seat sizes, from 14 up to 19 inches. The most common sizes are 17 and 17.5 inches. To determine your size, sit in a chair with your buttocks touching the back of the chair. Then measure the distance from your knee to the back of your buttocks. If you fall in between numbers or are not positive, always go up a size. It is much better for the saddle to be slightly larger than slightly smaller. If you have a Western saddle that fits you comfortably, you can add 2 inches to your saddle size and that will give you your English saddle size. To determine the gullet size, look at your horses back. The most common sizes are narrow, medium, wide, and extra-wide. If you have a previous saddle that fit your horse, use the same gullet size. See the manufacturer site for details.Types of County Saddlery saddles
