    Default Narrow twist on a wider saddle?

    My mare is soon going to outgrow her 32cm Stubben Roxanne which I love for the narrow twist.

    If I buy the same saddle in the XW tree am I likely to feel less comfortable in the saddle? In your opinion does the width of the saddle change the feel of the seat/twist?

    For those of you riding an XW horse what is your experience with twist vs tree size? Thanks a bunch!

    Laser are known for their narrow twists on wide gullets. They have adjustables too.

    I was not really looking for a recommedation on a saddle. I was asking (or trying to) how the width of the tree affects the twist of the saddle? If I go wider will the twist feel different?

    On some saddles it will - but not a Laser.
