[RC] Saddle saga and pain - Sundaez

Finally found a saddle that appears to fit my Morgan! Chiro came out and 
agreed it seems to be a good fit. SO far no soreness on the mare and chiro will 
come out next week after a week of hard riding to check for any possible 
soreness. The saddle is a Crates endurance saddle. I'm not crazy about it cuz 
of the 
weight and I prefer an english type saddle but  my mare comes first. I've 
tried at least 15 saddles on this mare.

Now...the problem...(of course there had to be one). I am in lots of pain 
after about an hour in this saddle. My knees hurt and my feet get numb. 
after doing 6 miles of hills I was very sore...when I dismounted my knees 
gave out and I almost fell down! Had to lean on the horse a minute.

I've tried adjusting the stirrups both up and down, and I use EZ ride 
stirrups. I take riding lessons and am not bracing. I've been riding since I 
was 12. 
I always tend to get more sore in western type saddles. 

Will knee braces help? If so what kind?
