Hmm, well I think that if your saddle fits nicely it shouldn't slip around to much, even if you don't have it cinched too tightly. One good thing is that my saddle doesn't roll side to side and it stays put when I am getting on, but once we start moving, it slips way back. The girth stays in place (And I am getting a new girth for xmas, from artcords. Com
), but my saddle reallly moves back.
I am pretty sure my saddle has arab bars, since the pitch/angle of the bars seems to be quite flat, and even though it was almost 15 years ago that I got this saddle, I remember my mom saying we were "looking for a saddle with an arab tree", because, well that's what I had at the time
. This is the first stock type horse that I have ever had.
I think my saddle fits me okay, it has a 15" inch seat which is roomy enough me, and I can ride in it all day (though have not ridden my horse all day in this saddle, because I am so fearful about the fit.) I do sort of feel like the saddle pushes me forward a bit which I don't really care for. I'm not crazy about the round skirt anymore, and most of all I hate the color! If you noticed that my stirrups are a different color and don't match, I got myself some Nettles stirrups and I got them in sort of a lighter color because I want my new saddle to be a lighter oil
