Re: [RC] Who rides english saddles ? - Barbara McCrary

My all time favorite saddle is the Arabian Saddle Co. Sylvan GP.  It does not have forward or backward stirrup settings....just right for me.  I once tried a Solstice and the stirrups were too far back.  I think it depends on where YOU are comfortable.  I would still be riding my Sylvan were it not for the fact it does not fit my current horse.

Hi Ridecampers
I have a little problem.
I ride a Ellips Dressage (Arabian Saddle Company ) saddle on my polish arab. The saddle fits me GREAT in the seat and
i feel really secure . BUT even with the stirrups in the furthest back position , I cant   get my legs under me.
So ..my question is ..(. do i need to sell my saddle?) .
Do  the " endurnace " typ enghlish saddles have the stirrups further back then my dressage saddle ?
and  what kind of english saddle would i buy to get my legs further back under me ?
I don't really know if this question is stupid. Just humor me. :-~
