I need help deciding which one I should trial and possibly buy. This saddle would be used for low level eventing, and while I will eventually get a dressage saddle, for now whatever I buy will have to do double duty.
Pelham Saddlery: Stubben Siegfried Used All Purpose Saddle 18 W(31 cm)
Pelham Saddlery: Stubben Imperator 18 W(30.5cm)All Purpose Saddle
I am kind of leaning toward the first one, because I know from experience that I am comfortable in it, and can have my stirrups at dressage length and at jumping length and make it work. The only problem with the first model is my knees are pretty darn close to the front of the knee rolls when I have my stirrups at jumping length in the seigfried I am using now. So, I am conflicted about if I should get the more forward one or not.
I have to double check the seat size on the one that I am using now. My trainer thinks its a 16.5 or 17, but I can't think that it is since I can fit my entire hand behind my butt and I usually need a 17.5.
