Re: saddle sore knees
I had this problem with my english sadddle. I just thought it was my bum
left knee. To a certain extent, it is, but a friend advised me to LOWER the
stirrup a notch. Viola. Didn't work totally, the knee is still a bum knee,
but it worked a lot better. Might try experimenting with the lengths of
your stirrups. Sounds like shorter isn't what you need.

I just bought a used Synergist, and I love it, but...
the more I ride in it, the more my knees ache. I'm kind of puzzeled because
I really think it fits me pretty well. I feel well balenced in the saddle.
The other day I went on a gentle trail ride with some nonenduro-type
friends, we walked most of the 2 hours. My knees were so sore that I had to
remove my feet from the stirrups to stretch out my knees before jumping off
at the end. I have the stirrup length between my ankle and heel, closer to
my heels. Shorter feels too short. I'm not sure what to do. Do the
stirrups need to be moved?
I called Synergist, He's out of town. He'll call me soon. I just wanted
some ideas to mull over before I spoke to him. Any ideas?
