I have a big problem. A few months ago I bought this saddle. It's a Black Country Maelstrom. I love the look of it, I rode in one and it felt fantastic. I have talked to a lot of riders who own the same saddle and they say they would never go back.
Now my problem is this. I have tried it on this one horse and the fit of the saddle was not at all fitting the same way as when I tried it, in the store.By that I mean, it fit the horse fine, but it did not fit ME at all.My knees were barely touching the saddle rolls.
I even had ridden in it on a different horse and it was great (it was a test saddle, not this exact one). I was told by one of the riders in the arena,that the saddle had been put on to far forward on his withers which might have contributed to the saddle not being level and my not being to sit in the saddle properly.
Does the placement look bad to you guys? Can it really throw how I fit the saddle that much?
