cantle height

Amanda Apesos
For a given length of saddle, the height of a cantle will influence the angle at which the seat slopes. The tilt of your own pelvis should be the determining factor as to the slope of the seat. Thus, the tilt of your own pelvis should also influence the chosen height of a cantle. An individual with a posterior pelvic tilt will require a lower cantle than an identically proportioned individual in the same saddle with an anterior pelvic tilt. The fundamental issue in choosing a cantle height is deciding the slope it will create in the saddle, and matching this to your own unique anatomy so that you may effortlessly maintain a neutral, centered, balanced, and effective position.

I hope this helps,
