Issue with Jumping Tack

I did some jumping today in an AP. Every recovery, my rear end came down on the cantle and I had to quickly reposition to get it in the seat. While doing flatwork, the saddle felt snug, but was okay. After this workout, my back start hurting about an hour later.

Should I get a larger saddle? I am using a barn saddle that the BO said was a basic adult size (17"). I take a 21" in saddleseat and a 16" in Western.

17 inch is for smallish adults. 17.5 is a more common size for medium sized adults. How tall and how heavy are you? How about a photo of you in the saddle?

Allison, I don't have a photo with me riding in this saddle. I will ask the BO tomorrow if she has a 17.5" I can try --- I don't think I qualify as a smallish adult.

Thanks for the advice!
