RE: [RC] saddle twist - Bonnie Peralez

the width of the twist is hard to measure.

I would always tell the rider to sit on the saddle (on a rack in the store)
and then I would look at how their leg fell from their hip. If the saddle
was correct for the rider, their leg would fall naturally down the sides of
the saddle and their thigh would be flat against the saddle and their knees
would point straight ahead. If the twist was too wide, the rider's leg would
not hang naturally and the thighs and knees would be cranked outward and the
knees would not point straight ahead but out to the sides and the back of
the calf of the rider would be gripping the sides of the horse instead of
having a nice even contact down the leg with the foot also pointing forward.
