I just got my first “nice” calfskin saddle for Christmas- 2007 Antares, and am beginning to think it is the biggest mistake ever. My left leg is constantly an inch or 2 behind where it should be. My right leg has no problems. I’ve tried shortening stirrups, it has calfskin leathers. I have NEVER encountered this in ANY saddle I have ever ridden in for 20+ years- Butet, Crosby, no name 20+ year old saddles, Pessoa, etc. I thought the calfskin was supposed to lock you in and make your overall position much better. I am almost positive I’m going to trade it in, but my trainer doesn’t want me to yet. I’m not keeping a $2500 saddle if I don’t like it!
Has anyone dealt with ANYTHING like this??
Is it just that particular saddle?
