Comfortable "ride in all day" Trail Saddles

Looking for recommendations on a good super comfortable "I can ride all day in it" trail saddle. What do I look for? The saddle I have now, although comfortable for my caboose, KILLS my knees and ankles. Do some brands have more pliable, free swinging stirrup leathers? Any advice appreciated.

Many saddles do not come with "turned" leathers/fenders. This is what I do, and all my saddles end up with the stirrups permanently facing forward taking all pressure off my ankles and knees. It eliminates the need to use a broom stick trying to "train" the leather. Turning Western Stirrups

I hear great things about Tucker saddles. My favorite saddle right now is a Western Rawhide Trail Saddle. I agree, stirrup turners work wonders.
