I don't know how much the isabell costed(It's my trainer's tack, but it's the tack I use), but it is extremely comfy. I ride with long-jump stirrups, where the stirrups are down to my ankle if I let my leg loose. Yet, it still has a big bend in my knee, which I'm still trying to comprehend.
Hanna doesn't let me adjust her dressage saddle(Still way to long for me), or her hunter saddle(WAY to short for me), so I only really ride in her bareback pad, or I bring her hunter down a hole when she's not there. XD
I tend to have more balance with a short stirrup, but I know that If I get used to long, It would change. I like the grip I get with a bent knee. If I had to all of the sudden only ride with dressage-length, I know that I would just tip right out of that saddle at a canter xD
