    Re: [RC] Sport Saddles - Kathy & Mike Kelly

    I have a SS and love it (bought it from Karen Sullivan, actually).
    Short-backed horses sometimes have problems with it, its a fairly long
    saddle.  I had loin rubbing until I switched to a center-fired rigging,
    that's taken care of that.
    I most often hear that the horse loves it, but the rider can't tolerate the
    wider hip spread (from being right on the horses back vs raised by a tree).
    People who've had hip or knee problems may find it uncomfortable.
    No one saddle is going to fit every horse/rider.  I love mine and hope to
    get another this year!
