    On all my saddles, the size is marked somewhere on the saddle itself. Like on the stirrup bar or under a flap somewhere.

    4.5" medium?
    5" wide?

    Measured from tree point to tree point, on a bare tree. I think that's what someone on here said in some earlier discussions. I'll go look for posts that said that. (eta: Can't find. Read post #7?, mine, here: http://myhorseforum.com/threads/437378/)

    On HDR, 2.5 fit is the medium, and 3.5 fit is wide.

    Crosby marks M or W on stirrup bars. (eta: On the near side stirrup bar only, to be exact. And there are a very few XW Crosbys out there.)

    Collegiate, the old RD ones, ART plus a number is regular tree. Wide is just a number or sometimes a W after the number.

    eta: Stubben
    A or 28 narrow
    B or 29 medium-narrow
    C or 30 M
    D or 31 MW (31.5 is also MW but only old Stubbens have 1/2 size trees)
    E or 32 "wide"
    There's an XW that's about 34 cm.
    31cm - 32 cm are the most widely sold sized in the USA. But those are pretty equivalent to a Crosby M.
