Muscular thighs are never unsightly. A fit, strong woman is never unsightly.
Just my personal experience: I've found that for jumping, different saddles fit very differently and are balanced differently. Stirrup bars are in different locations. I can't have the same stirrup length in different saddles. When I go to do a little jumping, I have to get up in my 2-point and jumping position to feel where the stirrups give me the right balance and position. Try that. Get up in your jumping position and find the stirrup length that gives you the best stability and position. Then see how the flap feels in the seated position. Are there knee blocks? If not, then your knee is on the flap, so OK. If there are knee-blocks, are you on top of the block instead of behind it? That would be less than ideal. Where is the flap and knee-block when you're in your jump-position?
LOVE your pad! Did you make it yourself. If not, what brand is it? I NEED one.
