So, long story short...I've been having a difficult time finding a close contact that fits me...have tried every saddle under the sun I swear!
I reeeeally liked the M. Toulouse Premia, but I noticed that when I was riding in it, as soon as I started posting, my knees were all the way behind the knee rolls if I put them against my horse, so it was as though the knee rolls were too far forward! I found this same issue with almost ALL cc saddle types. It's like I needed to "chair sit" in order to reach the knee rolls, it was strange... M. Toulouse Premia
I ended up going with a Collegiate Convertible Senior Event (and I do Event with it, and do hunter paces), but now that I've started going over some higher fences, the back of the saddle is hitting me in the butt sometimes
It's a really deep seat, which works as far as my knees staying on the knee rolls but I really want a flatter cc type saddle for jumping. Collegiate Convertible Senior Event
Has anyone had a similar issue and what saddles worked for you? Has anyone tried the M. Toulouse Annice
or any of the others below? I LOVE M. Toulouse, I have their Aachen dressage saddle and ADORE IT! I'd love to be able to get one of these, but I'd also like to actually have my knees somewhere NEAR the knee rolls lol... Annice Candice Merina
