Was not attempting to start an argument with you Hayburner, I'm quite sure you love your saddle and that it works well for YOU. I even stated in my post that your reasoning for the leg position means the saddle works for you, but frankly, if you are sitting on your horse's back, where the seat of the saddle is, all of your weight is not in the stirrups. If you ride standing (2point),then it would certainly put the weight farther forward, which is the goal with this saddle. I personally do not believe that it is possible to have a rigidly constructed saddle be comfortable and beneficial to *most* horses when it is designed to have the weight centered over such a small area. Even when riding bareback, your weight is spread across your buttocks and thighs. Its just my opinion, nothing more.
