I have an older Saddlesmith saddle that I LOVE. It doesn't throw me forward or make me feel like I am riding awkwardly. I had a Teskey's barrel saddle (a very well made saddle, though) that I hated. I couldn't sit in it, and when I'd turn it would fling me forward. It wasn't me, because I could drop my stirrups and everything and it was just an awkward ride.
