None of my saddles put me in a chair seat
but I have certainly seen jump ones that do with unhelpful blocks. Short stirrups on a dressage saddle is less of an issue, they don't all have high cantles (my cob one is extremely low). But as I said before, A GP is a good compromise for most riders wanted to do some cross country.
