- Notice how “LOW” the seat is. The rider sits right down close to the horse’s back.
- Pay attention to where the stirrup leathers are hung. They’re far forward where they should be.
- Take a look at the “leg path” from the seat to the stirrup leathers. Very comfortable.
- Also notice the thickness of the leather. The leather is thin enough to let you feel the horse… yet thick enough to get the job done without adding a bunch of extra weight.
