Dressage saddle flap getting in the way

I got a Stubben dressage saddle for Christmas, and I love it, but I found that when I'm using my leg position A (I ride Western) that it kind of gets in the way of me being able to press my leg right there. It makes it a bit harder for me to get my leg on the horse. Is this just something I have to get used to/ will work its way out over time? What can I do to fix/help with this? Thanks!

What is leg position A? Where are you trying to out your leg when its restricted?

Kind of sounds like there's too much added blocking in the saddle. The saddles without a ton of blocking (leg/thigh blocks) don't restrict you leg positions. Can you post a picture of the saddle, or one like it?

Leg Position A is right behind the girth. I feel like the flap can get in the way a bit when I go to press my leg/spur right behind the girth. The saddle is a Stubben Parzival Dressage saddle, it actually doesn't have a whole lot blocking. There are hardly any knee blocks. I just feel as though the flap can get in the way a bit between me and the horse. I have a thread called "Stubben Parzival" that has a lot of pictures of it.
