    Default Black Country dressage rider fitting?

    Does anyone have experience riding in an Eloquence that could tell me if it tends to fit on the smaller or roomier side for the rider. I have to have any used saddles mailed to me, so I'm trying to narrow it down. I tend to be between a 17 and a 17.5 on dressage saddles, but I know that the Vega dressage in a 17 and the Niedersuss in a 16.75 are too small. The Albion 17.5 seems too big though, so any feedback would be MUCH appreciated ?!

    I'd say it tends to fit on the more roomier side. I feel like it's not quite as deep as some others (but deep enough for me), and it's got a bit of a wider twist so I think that makes it feel less constricting.

    I have an Eden, I also think it fits a bit "roomier"
