    Jump Saddle for a Longer Thigh?

    I'm looking for a jumper saddle that can offer the support for my longer thighs. I'm 5'9 and I currently ride in a Wintec 250 AP that I got when I was ten so of course when I have my stirrups at jumping height the knee roll is just too high so I've often have to work with short stirrups which doesn't make my leg look good and puts me off balance.

    I'm planning on going to a Tack Exchange near me to try out all the used saddles they have but any idea on what brands/saddles would likely fit best? I read that I should look for saddles made for men (if there is saddles that the ideal was for men or for taller riders).

    I really like my Wintec because of it's durability, interchangeable gullet and so on so forth but I'm buying a horse so I can buy a more expensive and non-changeable saddle. I also love the black color but I guess I can't be picky. :P

    Nice English Saddles

    You could try looking at the saddles at My beautiful online saddle and tack store.. They are Duett saddles and are very nice. They offer a generous trial period and do not charge a restocking fee.

    Any saddle that has a long/forward flap will fit. Just ask for a long and forward. If they don't have that then a long or a forward flap should fit your leg.

    I am in the same boat! I am looking for a forward flap jumping saddle as well. I have a M. Toulouse Premia saddle in the mail for a test ride, I will let you know how it goes if you would like. What is your price range? The Bates Caprilli is about $1300 new and has a forwad flap option. They sell for about $1000 new in good condition also!

    My price range is probably around 1,000. If the brand works out I'll probably buy used. And yes- tell me how it fits! My knees are always a good two inches below where the knee roll is in jumping stirrups on a ap saddle. -.-

    All right, well I rode in the MT Premia saddle today. The saddle was amazingly comfortable but the flaps were not forward enough for me. The saddle also put my leg in a really weird position... it wanted my crouch on the pommel and legs even with the back of the cantle. I will be trying the Bates Caprilli CC next on a test ride. I will let you know how that one goes!
