A deeper understanding of English saddles

I found this article on english saddle fit. Thought you english riders might find it interesting.

I came upon it hoping there would be something on western saddles. I must admit english saddles seem very foreign to me but i thought it was a neat article anyway.

No need to panic too much, chaps

I've read about half of the article, which seems mostly correct. But with a few caveats, which there always are since 'best fit' is often very much a matter of opinion

Don't let it put you off English saddles, though - they're not as awkward as they're made out to be
