It is important that your saddle fits your horse well. Good saddle fit keeps the horse comfortable and avoids a lot of behavioral issues.
However, it is equally important that the saddle also fits you – the rider.
When the saddle does not fit the rider, the rider will have a poor position and will need to compensate, gripping with their legs, leaning forward, or hanging onto the reins. Not only does this make riding a lot less fun for the rider, when the rider is out of a good position, the horse has to work a lot harder as well.
