    I agree its just domething you have to get used to. Right now when I flat I only go 2 holes down from my jumping length because I have a cc (close contact) saddle and with jumping saddles you can't ride effectively with a long stirrup length. In my old saddle I did dressage in very long stirrups and it was much easier !

    Is it true or some kind of joke? I've never heard/seen it before either. What is the name of this stuff? And if it's not a joke how do you clean it off the pants?!

    Thanks for everyone who responded! I was curious because dressage length is really lengthy (hmmmmm.....), so I'd think 1 or 2 holes for jumping is not enough. The length my old instructor asked me to use is WAY shorter than my current dressage length.

    OK. So here is my old pic in A/P saddle. Is it too long for jumping (up to 2 feet, not talking about high jumps here)? OK for flat? I'd really appreciate critique for saddle, seat, length! I got dressage saddle short after (as I started taking lessons with dressage instructor), and I definitely have longer leg in real dressage saddle.

    LOL, definitely not a joke! I only put it on my boots. If I use a lot for several days in a row it can get a little gunky on my boots/saddle but it comes off with soap and water. If you get it on your pants it does wash out.

    Sounds like a gimmick to me! Just kidding...

    I wonder if only jumpers do it or dressage people as well.

    Actually the person who introduced it to me was a dressage rider! And I know that Beezie Madden uses Saddle-Tite (which is sticky stuff in a bar form, kind of looks like deodorant).

    MIE- it's not a miracle leg fix but if you ever need a little extra something it's nice! It takes some getting used to though. The first 5 minutes it's pretty sticky. Then it's just a little extra added oomph. Great for new boots that are still slick! Try it!

    Lol I've never heard of the stuff either!

    I suppose it would also be quite helpful if you're jumping higher on a horse that really will toss you up out of the tack because it's so scopey. XD But I'd rather not have to rely on something like that.
