Measure A Sports Saddle® Seat

How to Measure a SS Seat

The proper way to measure the seat size of a Bob Marshall Sports Saddle is to:

– Measure between the cantle and the pommel at the nearest points and add 6 inches, and,

– Notice the tape is over top of the trim roll which is the correct way to do it.

So, if you measure 10” between and add 6 inches, then you have a 16″ seat.

– Notice the exact location of the tape at both the cantle and the pommel. 
– If the tape is either too high or too low the measurement will not be correct.


If you are basing your saddle order on the size of someone’s BMSS then you want to know exactly what seat size it is. Do yourself a BIG favor and measure that saddle for its actual size.

When people call me to order I always ask them their height, weight and upper thigh size and if a woman, I like to know what pant size they wear. I also want to know if they have recently tried a BMSS and if so what was the seat size.
