I was an emancipated woman – or so I thought – and as such, I should be able to ride in any saddle. That was my mindset until I actually felt the difference between a saddle made for men and one made for women. Without exaggeration, this was truly an eye-opening experience. I rode so naturally without making any effort to have my legs hang straight down where they were supposed to be, and I felt the movement as one with my horse. Since then, as a trainer I often think that a saddle that is correctly fitted to my students would definitely help some of their position issues.
