The largest saddle is 2.92 m (9 ft 6 in) long, 1.20 m (3 ft 11 in) high at the front and 1.55 m (5 ft 1 in) high at the back and was manufactured by Carlos Almeida and Manuel Nogueira (both Portugal). It was presented and measured in Torre de Dona Chama, Portugal, 3 February 2008. Traditionally saddles are not measured by heigt, but by the length of the arch, which in this case is 2.87 m (9 ft 4 in) at the front and 3.87 m (12 ft 8 in) at the back.
