How can you tell the manufacturer of a saddle?

Western saddle makers typically place their marks on one of three places: the latigo holder, behind the cantle or on the fenders. A few makers stamp underneath the flap or on the seat itself. Sometimes you can find the maker’s mark on a metal tag placed on the saddle.

How do you measure a saddle to sell?

Use a measuring tape and measure from the center of the button on the pommel (front of the saddle), to the middle of the cantle (rear of the saddle). For most adult size saddles this will be about 17″.
