[RC] re: [RC] Ortho-Flex Patriot was "saddle twist" - Don Huston - David Bennett

One of my two main saddles is an O-F Stitchdown.  It
is comfortable to me and works fine on both my gelding
and my young mare.  However, it does put me in a
position that is up and off of the horse's back.  That
makes it feel less stable than my other saddle that
fits closer.  I have thought of removing the
Stitchdown's panel system completely and using one of
Len Brown's CorrecTORs with it.  That should lower the
saddle further on to the horse's back and stabilize
it.  However, I am a little apprehensive about
changing something that is otherwise "working"...

OF Patriot has been my main enduro saddle for 8
years now. After several months riding I decided to
remove the metal spacers from all 4 points and screwed
the panels flush with the tree but not tight, just
snug, so they can still move around some. Made a world
of difference on fitting my horse. Wider distance
between the panels meant the saddle fit down onto my
horse's back and withers nice and snug instead of
perched way high and not secure.
