So I'm short.
I'm 5'1" on a good day and I don't have very long legs at all. Most of the time it's murder trying to take out a trail ride at the stables where I work since many of the saddles just don't let the stirrups raise as high as I need. My bum and thighs aren't HUGE, but a kid's saddle ain't gonna do the trick, I don't think.
I prefer riding in an English saddle anyway and I love my dressage saddle, but really it was not made for someone as short as me. My knees aren't in the right spot on the flaps since my thighs aren't long enough! It's hard to get in a good comfy position for long distance. A few rides a day is fine, but I can tell that my knees are not gonna be happy when I'm spending several hours a day in the wrong position. Plus I know I'm not as balanced as I could be, and I really want an excellent seat on the trails. Ugh.
What can I do about this? The knee rolls in my saddle could use being restuffed, so could it be done in such a way that it's not fudging up my position - change up the position of the filling or something? Would this be exorbitantly expensive? Heck, is this issue even fixable at all without buying a new saddle?
Please help short little me.
