There actually in front of the cinch. The difference is that having the stirups in front of the cinch makes it so much easier to use your legs on the horses shoulders when turning.(and there is no bulk) My old circle y has so much bulk that I can't bring my legs up further to ask for a turn lets say. OH,of course you can turn in any saddle because everyone does but I'm just saying that your in a more balanced position.
Anyother saddle maker that has the same idea and they both know each other is Boz. The Boz saddle is made the same as the Fallis only the Fallis is leather and the Boz saddles are fleece. They are cheaper because of the materials used but they are the same with the stirups in front of the cinch. If you go on the Boz web site he has a video that explains why they are built that way. You can do all the different manuvers like reining , trail riding, ect. I just feel more secure. I'm getting mine in may and I can't wait...
