The flap is so forward that it looks a little goofy off the horse and I was worried that it may be too forward and long for my leg. However, once I sat in it, I knew it was a perfect fit. It is so amazing to ride in a saddle that actually fits my leg! I will definitely be keeping this saddle!
    That's great!! Always fun when you find exactly what you need... and used to boot!

    Did you have a saddle fitter come out and make sure it fit your horse? It can be a total pain to find a saddle that fits both the hard to fit rider and the hard to fit horse... I finally found one after more than 6 months of searching just to have my horse go lame a few weeks later and now the stupid semi custom Black Country just sits around because it only fits my tank of a paint gelding

    I went to get a custom Antares but tried the Spooner with a short flap and it fit me and my horse almost like a custom would so I bought it instead. I love it!
