Re: [RC] Who rides english saddles ? - Laney Humphrey

Not a stupid question at all! If you can't ride well, your horse can't move well. Do you live near enough to any large saddle store to go spend a few hours trying different saddles to explore the differences in how they fit you? I went to the Arabian Saddle Co. website & noticed the Rubicon saddle which they say is designed for endurance. Maybe it would fit differently. I'd also try saddles made by other companies. To me, it's the length of your thigh and calf that determine how an english saddle fits. There is absolutely no consistency among saddles which makes finding one that works really hard.
Good luck!
PS I have a JRD dressage/trail saddle advertised in the classifieds. Take a look.

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. :-~
