Oh yeah I had all kinds of trouble with close contacts, I just don't fit into anything that doesn't have a straight flap, because I end up chair sitting to get to the knee rolls at ALL so that I'm not riding totally back behind them altogether! I think it's because I am long from hip to knee BUT short from knee to ankle.

So I had to settle for an Eventing saddle, which is more or less a mix between CC and AP.

I just need to find a saddle that fits me and my horse

Dover Saddlery | Circuit Elite XC Saddle .

Would this be a good choice

Eventer, while it does sound to me 17.5 should be too big for you (I used 17.5 CC and I'm WAY taller than you and heavier too) it really depends on how it fit your bum and the model/brand. My 18 dressage seems to be smaller than 17 A/P, for example.

Now for fitting I don't think anyone can tell if this saddle is better than that. You either want to talk to the saddle fitter or take pics with the saddle and post them for people to judge. OR talk to the tack store (like Trumbull Mountain Tack Shop - The Saddle Specialists, they advise with saddles and they also have number of good saddles to choose from).

I think Circuit is nice looking and comfortable to sit in (I tried them in Dover before). However the problem with Circuit is because it's not a "brand" saddle (like Stubben or Pessoa or ...) it doesn't hold its value as good as those brands (at least that was my feeling when I did a search on Circuit while back).

Yea I read the reviews and decided not lol, I just don't have 1500 bucks for a good saddle. I had a saddle fitter look at my dressage saddle and he said it was ok , but I don't believe him after everyones comments and videos I watched, I change the size of it and my horse is acting better. But I need to find a jumping saddle , I found a few on ebay for CHEAP and noone is bidding and I wont take a chunk out of my wallet if I decide to buy one

You probably posted before, but... What kind (breed) of horse do you have and how does he look like confo-wise (I mean does he has a broad back? Narrow?)? And sorry to ask, but what's your price range?

Like those seem to be decent (BTW, you can ALWAYS try to negotiate the price too and bring it down another $100-200!):

The only way you're going to know what saddle will put you in a proper leg position is to try it out. Your best bet would be to work with a good saddle shop that sells used saddles that can help you narrow down your options. A good saddle shop will know which saddles are likely to work for your height/seat combination and which ones will fit your horse. If you don't have one locally, then work with a shop that's not too far that will ship you saddles on trial/loan to try. Take pictures and wither tracings of your horse for saddle fit, and take your measurements for your saddle fit. Ask the shop which measurements they need and how best to take them.
