I love Passier, but look at the seat shape and what you are used to and see if one of them will not work. The passier has a narrow twist which makes for a very close contact feel, but it comes up in front and back more, which might not work for YOU. Any way you can sit in them?

Tiny, I'm used to a 14" barrel racing saddle. I don't think that compares to any of the above LOL

Bahhaha it's nice and snug, you can see it in my signature, even though I'm in mid-posting position.

Are those three saddles perchance for sale in Alberta?


Anyways - are you able to try them out on your horse and get a professional saddle fitter's opinion? English saddles are much more finicky to fit than Western saddles as the pressure points are much more specific. I thought my Exselle saddle fit Ronan alright - man, was I wrong... I just had a pro saddle fitter out who took the time to sort me out with a saddle that worked well for both myself and Ronan... Ronan felt like a different horse underneath me.
I would hesitate to buy without trying a saddle period, much less online... especially if it's a one-shot deal for you..

They are in fact for sale in Alberta, Calgary to be exact!

I know fitting is tough, that's why I'm gearing myself towards adjustable saddles more so than anything else.
