Hi all! this topic is so foreign to me. Coming over here from the dressage and jumping world. I would really like to get a Bob Marshall sport saddle for some longer trail rides I have planned, and am wondering about seat sizes, skirts, etc. I think I have my seat size figured out, but am wondering about the skirt of a saddle. My guy is short backed, so I have been looking at saddles with a round skirt, but it looks like the overall length varies. How far back is too far? Do the same rules apply as a dressage saddle for example? And lets say a saddle is advertised as a 28" skirt, how do I actually lay that measurement out on my horse? I’ll be looking for a used saddle, so I’d like to know what to look for and ask about. Thanks!
Edited with another question: what is the difference between a regular Bob Marshall and Bob Marshall by Circle Y?
