A friend of mine is searching for a saddle she feels secure in. She is a beginner rider who only has aspirations to WTC in her own backyard. She currently has an older model wintec monoflap jump saddle. I let her borrow my dressage saddle and she LOVES the seat. The problem is that her legs are so short, to get her stirrups short enough her knees are over the flap.

I've never had this problem, so I have no experience here.

Would an AP saddle give a similar feel, with a flap that would fit better?? A specific brand of dressage saddle?? Custom saddles are out of the question, as she doesn't ride enough to warrant the expense.

Any suggestions would be great!
