Body Position in AP Saddle
Sooooooo, I tried my new Wintec 2000 AP saddle last night for the first time. Wow. A much different tactical feel from Western than I was expecting.
I will have my buddy photography me tonight in the saddle and post them later tonight. However, I was wondering if anyone has photos they can share for me?
I am looking for photos that demonstrate body placement in the saddle. I know that there is a straight line running from shoulder, through hip, down to heels. But where exactly are you sitting in the saddle?
I ask because my Wintec came with the velcro knee pads inserts. During my test ride yesterday, I didn't feel as if my knees were anywhere near those pads. With the different stirrups (compared to Western) I almost felt as if my legs were back too far.
I know my pictures will go a long way in answering my questions, but I have never rode in an English saddle before. Can you describe what it should feel like, and provide pics if possible?
