Talking My new saddle!!!!!!!

YAY! It is an 18.5" Crosby Bruce Davidson eventer. My stirrups need more holes so I look funny in it LOL I know the panels look like they don't fit but I had just pulled it out of the box and after I rode in it, the stuffing adjusted

I'm not great at fitting critique, but it looks like a nice saddle. I hope it's very comfortable to ride as well. :)

It looks too low in front, which is popping up the back of the saddle. A saddle fitter may be able to adjust the flocking to help level out the saddle.

How would you have fixed it though? It looks to be in the right position in the photos without you in it. Maybe a front riser pad would help.

riser pads work very well. I have one. I don't use it anymore thoughbecause I have a better fitting saddle now but they defiently help.

This saddle would need a front riser, not a rear riser.

It does look in the right position but this saddle likes to sit more forward. It locked into place higher up. I tried a riser and it didnt work. It was too much

I'm not an English rider, but if it is a brand new saddle, won't the back end settle down with use as the padding shapes to fit the horse? But like I said, I ride western, lol!
