Question Knee Rolls?

I have some money saved up for a saddle.. and I was wondering if I should get a saddle with knee rolls. I have a problem where its hard to keep my legs still and I think knee rolls would help ALOT to keep my legs from moving.

I've never ridden in a saddle with out them, but I'd definitely go with the knee rolls. :)

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

I rode once without knee rolls. And I felt like I was being popped out of the saddle while jumping. If your leg isn't stable like you say, then I think knee roles might help.

It really depends on if you have stable knees/legs, that can grip to the saddle well. I have the littlest knee rolls on my english saddles. Unless you are jumping then you do not need a saddle with big knee rolls, just one that will keep your knees in place.

Go for the knee rolls! I bought a used saddle once that didn't have them, and didn't think anything of it. It was THE most uncomfortable thing for me, especially over fences. I like the stability the knee rolls gave me over fences.
