English saddle sizing for rider
I'm slim, 5'9" with long legs. I have a 16.5" hunt seat saddle now but I am getting another one to fit me and my horse better. I ordered two M. Toulouse saddles to test ride-Celine and Annice-both a 17" seat-and I am seeing that the Celine's flap is about the length and width of mine now, which is still a bit too short, and the Annice's is way too short. I'm not sure if I should go with a bigger seat size, like a 17.5 (although I like the 17) or if I need a longer or more forward flap. The Toulouses come in long flaps-would that possibly work, or would I still need more? Right now my knees extend past the knee rolls, especially on the Annice. Any advice here?
