As some of you may remember, I recently purchased an english saddle to try out. I am really liking it, but I'm having some difficulties finding the right position. So I had some of my english riding friends out to take a look, and my 17" saddle was deemed much too small for my bottom.
I'm 5'8" and 160 pounds, so I'm not that overweight or anything. I know men ride english, so there has got to be a saddle big enough to hold all of me. The butt-to-knee length of my thigh is around 23," so what size saddle might work for me? Do they even make anything that big?
On a side note, I found the deal of the century at the consignment section of my tack shop. A lightly used Parelli Theraflex (?) saddle pad, complete with shims for $30.
