My legs and knees are like that because, my stirrups were too short. I already knew that when posting the picture but, I don't like to have my stirrups lowered because, than I grip with my knees so, really that's not the problem. I really like my saddle anyhow, that's why I originally bought it. I also can't buy a used one.. A new saddle is absolutely not an option right now.
I don't know if you saw what I posted just before but, I had a trainer in this week just to evaluate what needs to be done and the trainer said it shouldn't be hard to fix the problems I have.
As I said In my post I COMPLETELY understand, I truly truly do, I don't want you to thing that im taking a stab at you or anything, I don't want you to get defensive. I had to ride in a saddle that didnt work for me and my mare for a year before I saved enough to buy a new one! I took on a side job of training horses again to pay for it. Again I got a wintec because it was cheap, like $470 brand new, no its not my first choice but I looked at used saddles and nothing fit right or my size wasnt available so I had no choice but to buy new and that meant buying synthetic to save money. I know you said it fits your horse and that is the most important like I stated, but if it doesnt fit you well it can inhibit your riding. It was hard to find a saddle to fit my mare because she has very large wide shoulders that come very far back into a high thick wither and then a low curvy back. I understand hard fitting horses too lol. I don't know how many horsie friends you may know, but if you can see if you can borrow one. Its worth shot ya know, what do you have to lose? Oh and congratulations I hope you have a wonderful wedding!
