I'm thinking of getting a jumping saddle. I am currently doing up to 75cm in a wintec 2000 all purpose (the older style), but I can't put my stirrups up to my comfortable jumping height without my knees going over the edge. And I tried jumping 80cm with the stirrup length that is as high as it can go before my knees go over, and its just really uncomfortable...
So, my question is, should I get a close contact:
Or this jumping saddle:
I will be continuing to jump higher as I progress. I am jumping 75cm in course... and I plan to jump 80, then 85 (sorry, I don't know how high these are in feet) and so on... what would be the best saddle to get? The close contact, or the deeper seated jumping saddle?
