Question Toulouse saddle?

So I ordered in this lovely Toulouse Denisse Pro saddle Marcel Toulouse Denisse Pro Saddle | Dover Saddlery...GORGEOUS and looks like it would be a great fit for my pony's back (flat, wide panels that aren't as steeply set as my Pessoa, which is what my mare needs with the way her back is shaped - I had a saddle fitter out to confirm)...but just 1 problem: it feels like my seat bones are being ground on a rock when I sit in it!

Has anyone else had an issue with this particular Toulouse? My trainer sat in it as well and mentioned the same thing...that where your seat bones come in contact with the saddle, it's super hard and they just rub...it's almost like the seat isn't wide enough there so your seat bones are resting right on the hardest part where the seam is, it's strange.

I don't have a Denisse (mine is a Laura B), however the first two times I rode in it I did notice this. However, it went away pretty quick and ended up becoming a super comfortable saddle. I chalked it up to the fact that the saddle had a different twist than what I was used to, and I just had to get used to that. No regrets though--I love my MT saddle. :)

Yeah they are nice saddles - I have the dressage saddle "Aachen" and it is so comfy!!! So maybe the Denisse just has too narrow of a twist then? :/

I noticed that too when I test rode the M Toulouse Jennine! I decided not to get it, but it is interesting to know you get used to it... I ride in a very narrow twist saddle normally, a Stubben, and the seams are fine, but I think the seams stick out more on the MT saddles and are right below your seat bones.

Yeah it is just as if the seams were hitting my seat bones directly!! So not comfortable! And I don't think my Pessoa is that much different of a twist but maybe it is? I have the Pessoa Gen X Elita
