    Question Freeform EnduroX seat size?

    I am looking at a used EnduroX with a 19" seat. According to the size chart an 18" seat should be my size in a Freeform. They also mention that depending on your horses back shape and if you like a roomy seat you may go up a size.

    So anyone with the EnduroX seat? Do you think I could get away with a seat that is one size too big?

    I guess I will find out, I just bought the saddle.

    It might be fine. If you think it is a little too big you can put a nice thick seat fuzzy on it, that will take up some room. A friend of mine sometimes borrows my 19" enduro (which does have a sheepskin seat cover), and she normally rides in an 18" freeform classic seat but says my saddle feels good/right too.

    I tried several seat types on the freeform that I had in the past. IMO, they tend to feel small to many of use because there is such a short flat spot to the seats. I was happier after going with a longer seat.

    That is good to know. I like more room than less so I was rolling the dice that the 19" would work. The sheepskin is a good idea if it feels too big.

    Can't wait until I get it, it is still in transit!
