Suggestions for a saddle for DH! He's 6'4"!
Hello all, I am hoping to get some suggestions for saddles to try for Mr. BCGirl.
He is 6'4" and basically all legs. From the point of his hip to his knee measures 21". I found him a nice used 18" Smith-Worthington with a very very forward flap and pretty thick knee roll which he absolutely despises. He tried out my 17.5 Crosby Equilibrium today and vastly preferred it to the Smith-Worthington minus it being far too small for him. I have done a little looking around online and don't even know if they make Crosbys in a 19 or so.
Long term I am looking for something that he will hunt in, but short term he is really just getting back into riding.
I personally am a life long Crosby/pancake saddle person as anything else kills my hips due to all the padding. As a result I don't know all that much about other saddles as I have always had one that fits me and thankfully my horses!
So the point is, I need some ideas! All of the trial saddles from Smartpak, Dover, etc are all 17. I guess I could try some of those and see what works, but am at a loss at to where to begin!
Any ideas are greatly appreciated!
