No problem, I didn't think saddles made that big a deal until I sat in one that made a good position so easy lol. Good luck in your search!

Look into saddles best designed for your discipline and consider staying clear of all-purpose. AP are usually the saddles that cause rider difficulty.

AP saddles definatly do not help those tall with long or lanky legs. But with ppl that are built more stout APs can be helpfull. I sat better in an AP but then again I am a Mesomorph. (an over weight one but none the less built mesomorphicly) Some ppl are Ectomorphs (tall, thin also known to be rather lanky.....and no I am not using lanky as a negative term.) Endomorph are more stout and short. Ectomorphs do not sit as well in an AP designed saddle where as many Mesomorphs can. Endomorphs do better with shorter, straighter flaps and a medium deep seat to encourage lengthening of the leg. Ectomorphs make for gracefull riders where as endomorphs can make stable riders but not nessesarily "classic" riders (center of balance is closer to the horse than a ectomorph and a mesomorph) Mesomorphs fall into a wide range, I am not a pretty rider in a classic gracefull sense but I am very effective.

I guess in all of reality I am basically mesomorphic with a little bit of endomorph because I am very short waisted. I do well in decently designed AP saddles.....in jumping saddles...not so much. BUt I now ride western and cutback "flat" saddles (aka saddleseat saddles). I do better in Equitation style saddleseat saddles.

Hello, my name is Giovanni and I write from Italy '. I have a black Lipizzaner in training and I would like to buy a saddle Portuguese, at a fair price. Can you tell me a site where they sell the saddle I'm looking for? Thank you.
Merry Christmas.

Sorry, can't agree with this. If it's so why are the vast majority of saddles sold around the world of this type?

It's like me saying every CC saddle is a pig to fit, which a lot of them are but a lot of well made ones aren't

I must agree with that one. There are more mesomorphic (or mesomorphic blended) designed ppl out there than not, wich makes sense with APs being one of the most commonly purchased and ridden in saddles.

Oh and I have to add....one can buy a pretty darn good and decently made saddle for 1'500 dollars. You dont have to spend 3'000 for a good saddle. Of course if your riding Grand Prix and making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year riding top notch then perhaps you do but other wise ...NO.

I love my Pessoa. You can find used ones in your price range and also you can look in the flawed section of the dover catalog for scratched or test saddles at deep discounts.
