Please remember when looking at saddles that every saddle is uniquely built. Between what looks like the same saddle there maybe some subtle differences. Saddles may have been customized for the horse and rider they were originally made for. The staff at Olson's Tack Shop do their best to give accurate approximate measurements from the stamp readings. This service is a courtesy and is not a guarantee. Thank you for your understanding.
