Did you find posting strange when you first tried the saddle?

Tried one today and with the set back stirrup bars my seat bones pointed back when posting which according to her video is how it supposed to be, but my back hurt and was very arched feeling.

I tried one. My horses did not like how the gullet felt near their spine, so it went back.

But as for as posting the trot, I felt like I was going to tip forward and I had to adjust my posture so much it was hurting my lower back.
I don't think I could have properly ridden in it for a long time. I felt okay at the walk & canter, but posting the trot was almost a strain for me. And it made my horses shorten their stride, because of me not being in balance.

Supposedly it's the right way to sit & post, but I couldn't do it.

That is interesting.

I really wanted to love it and have my horses love it, but so far I don't and 2 of them don't. It's super comfy for my seat, but it only seems to work well with my very round table top horse.

I had the exact same issue you did and my horses did not go well b/c I felt so strange and they knew it.

The woman I borrowed it from also said her horse didn't like it.
