...needs to be a saddle that can be used for flatwork and for jumping. I'm an adult but small (105 lbs on a heavy day). long femurs but short calves. Pony is really a horse as he's 14.3 - Welsh/Holsteiner cross and precious. Finding a saddle for him is top of my current "to do" list. Please include reasons why you suggest the saddle/model - thanks!!!!

Just as a suggestion without knowing what you want, I'd look for a forward flap in your seat size. That will take up the knee. My sister is very small but leggy and wears a 16 inch antares saddle with a forward flap and regular tree on a large pony.
I'm 4'11" and about 100lbs. Also have a long thigh. I ride in an Antares with a 1E flap. Most pony saddles will be 16" or smaller so if you can fit in a 16" then it's not a big deal. I ride in a 16.5 but can fit in a 16. You might have to go up to the higher end saddles if you are wanting to stay that size. I can do a 2N in the Antares but it's more comfortable in the 1E. I can't fit in Beval's. Tried the Stamford, the Salem and the Millbrook and none of them were forward enough.
Smith Worthington, Mystic model. It's the only saddle that my kid fits in. She has a very long leg, both thigh and calf, and it's the only "off the rack" saddle that had a forward enough flap. I did not get the extra forward, just the regular flap and it's very forward. The tree is very wide also, but you can have it adjusted to fit.
