Is there any possible way to remove fixed external blocks off of a saddle? Saddle is a monoflap and was hard to find in terms of fit as I need hoop trees.
However, I was looking at some posts that Saddlefitting.us has made about getting rid of blocks on saddles. I guess there’s a movement going around called #NoBlocksNoProblems where people remove their blocks or change to saddles without them and have seen improvements in their riding. It seems that the issue they stated is apparently modern saddles with blocks push the leg too far behind the girth so then the rider has to rotate the toe out and slide the leg forward to use their lower leg.
Now I’m paranoid that my blocks has been detrimental to my riding. Is it possible for a saddle fitter to remove them without the saddle being butchered? In hindsight, probably would’ve been better to get a dual flap saddle with removable blocks but I love the close feel of a monoflap, sigh.
