Cool It fits!

Ok, I posted a while ago here how I couldn't get a good position in my jumping saddle and was seriously considering switching to an a/p. I thought the problem was because of my own body conformation. Well, it turns out, I was sitting all catty-wompus in the saddle. I was leaning back, tilting my pelvis up (so I was sitting more on my tail bone) and that caused a domino effect with my legs and balance (not to mention constantly sitting behind the motion of the horse! Poor thing). I do take lessons, and I guess my instructor didn't notice my funny position. I was so frustrated too that I couldn't feel my seat bones! I never had this problem when I was younger. So now that I figured that out, I righted myself and now the saddle is actually perfect for me. And I have better communication with my horse too! Go figure. I just wanted to post how something so small could make the world of difference in not only how the saddle fits for your own personal body and in turn support you correctly, but how it can improve the communication between rider and horse.
