I have been having a problem throwing my right leg forward in the saddle. I can tell I am not sitting evenly in the seat and it sometimes makes my saddle shift. I do have back problems, but not sure it is the root of the problem, I've been doing it for a looong time and is worse when I ride western. I used to only have a problem when I cantered, now its even at a walk. I can't seem to make my leg go back unless I hold my pommel and throw my leg back... but then it just sneaks back up again. I am getting extremely sore in the saddle, my seat bones sore, my lower back, and the outside of my right foot because it rubs so bad on my stirrup. I've been having got get off and walk a ways because I am so sore. I don't do it at all if I drop my stirrups, but then my seat bones get bruised if I ride like that for quite a while(I think the seat of my saddle is too wide for me). I've tried adjusting my stirrups up and down and nothing seems to help.
I've been thinking maybe I should just switch back to english??
I had my husband stop and take a picture of my leg when I felt it sneaking back up so I could see how I was sitting, my leg is obviously waay to far forward. I don't know if its just me doing it, or the fender on my saddle just not in the proper position??
