My trainer is suggesting that I get a new saddle. She doesn't think the one that I have (Beval Princeton) is right for hunter/jumping. In fact, she doesn't like anything about it and thinks that a different saddle could improve my balance, grip, position, etc. She has suggested two brands to look at: Thornhill and Marcel Tulouse. Does anyone here have either of those brands that they use for hunter/jumping? If so, what model and what do you think of them?
Also, I have been looking at the cheese grater stirrup pads and the jointed stirrups. Does anyone have any feedback on these as well?
Thanks for your help.
