Tubby, with my body type where they have the stirrup bar...it puts me behind the center. Also have heard of other people with this problem. Other than that, I like the saddle a lot and the most important thing is my mare really likes it.
If the way the leather hung, put me at center it would be fine. But Behind the center is not good.
I have tried so many kinds of Treeless saddles and so far.. other than the Stirrup hanger,, this is the only one we both like.
