I cannot figure out the issue.
One leg is either longer than the other, the leathers are stretched or the saddle is off kilter bc I feel like one leg is always "longer" than the other in this saddle!! If I take it up a hole in the leathers, it's shorter, so it's not a lot different, but enough that it bothers me! IDK what to do/how to find out what the problem is and need help.
Also - silly question, but at what length do the stirrups need to be? I was taught to stand away from the horse, pull the stirrups toward my armpit and put my fingertips against the saddle for measurement. Doesn't sound very scientific so not sure if there is a better way. My leg is bent at almost a 90 degree angle - not quite but close. It feels a little - high? up at the knee. Maybe I need to lower them??
