Abetta Serenity Endurance Saddle hurts inner thigh?
1 Attachment(s)
Tried an Abetta Serenity Endurance saddle the other day. Loved everything about it, except it seemed to hurt/bruise my inner thigh. Anyone else experience this? It seems to hurt where I've circled in red in attached picture.

No but don't go buying it because it rocks in every other category.. bruising on your legs from a saddle isn't the norm for me so I cannot imagine it being the norm for you either!

Could be that the twist is too wide for you. I don't know how you're built, but most women with narrow hips find a saddle with a wide twist uncomfortable.

lengthen the stirrups a notch

Unfortunately for me, I have that problem with many western saddles I try, despite not being particularly narrow hipped in proportion to my height (5'3"). Don't buy the saddle. The problem will not go away and the bruises will only get more an more sore. Trust me. Let the bruises heal, and then start looking for another, different saddle that does not do that to you.
