You would be so amazed how many people struggle with keeping their own balance independently from their horse. Add to that jumps, or misbehaving horses and the struggle is REAL! So often these problems can be addressed with a good balanced saddle that “wants” you to be in the right place and of course with proper saddle fit so that your saddle moves well with you and your horse. I absolutely love my Voltaire Design USA & Canada saddles. They help maintain a soft seat, easy balance and are designed with the horses’ comfort in mind.
