Dressage saddles put you back a little bit more (as compared to an a/p and c/c saddle), thus you might be put off trying to jump with the horse/
They aren't knee blocks, they're leg blocks that are behind my leg, causing my leg to not be in the correct position. They become too far forward for dressage work.
The saddle I have now is the old version of the Dover Circuit. It's a jumper saddle.
And I know that dressage saddles will put you back more. It's the same as a jumper saddle putting you forward more. I would never jump in a dressage saddle, that's why I would keep the jumping saddle I have now for jumping, and use a new dressage saddle for dressage and flat work at home.
