    Stirrup Lengths??!!

    Now I just started jumping in my new saddle, and in the past I used a different brand and my leg would stay in line but now with my new saddle my leg tends to fall forward and looks like im sittin in a chair. I have a hard time holding my leg back where im suppose to.( also 4 years ago I dislocated my hip so its hard to hold my leg back sometimes). I was jumping my trainers horse the other day and we were doing 3'6 and I wasnt sure if my stiirups were to short or not can you help give me an idea?

    It could just be that the saddle doesn't fit you. Jump saddles in my experience tend to push your leg too far forward.

    I don't know how to tell - the right length just feels right for me. Try a few lengths and see what is best for you.
