Mens Horse SaddleMen's horse saddle
F My hip and lower back hurt after every trip and I think it could be my saddle. I' had the saddle attached to my horse, but how can I tell if it would fit me? You are right if you wonder if your pains could come from your saddle.
Sorrows like yours are very frequent with female riders, as they often ride in a saddle made for men. Since a man's lap is different from a woman's, saddle riders who ride in a "male" saddle may have back, knees, hips and hips pains and may have difficulties keeping the correct saddle positions and postures.
The most common errors are in measuring the swirl width and the width of the seats. Twisting is the area of the saddle between the upper legs, while the width of the saddle is defined by the spacing between the two sides of the stitching along the side of the pad.
The man's buttocks are much nearer to each other and the gap between them is much smaller, so it will fit snugly on most sitters. Bone of a feminine basin is much further apart, and when a lady is riding in a "male" saddle, she is sitting unpleasantly on the saddle.
Spacing between the stitching on the fit should be large enough to allow the seated bone to overlay. When the fit is too small, you have the feeling that you are seated on a crest and your perch bone is falling from the edges of the carry. Frequently, the width and rotation of the seats are confused, so that a female purchases a saddle with a broad rotation and not the broad one she actually needs.
Width of the required swirl is defined by the width between the legs. Since females have a tendency to bend outwards at the hips and inwards at the knees (so-called "Q-flexion"), a women bears more load on her inner femur than men.
Sitting on a saddle that is too broad, a woman's legs are moved forward instead of hanging down and her knees and toes are squeezed out at an 45 degrees toes. Gypsum impressions show the strong difference in pelvis structures between a female (left) and male (right) and how these influence their positions in the saddle.
You can see that the pubis joint helps the female support her posture like the third foot of a stand, while the man is sitting on his two ischium. Since a man's pubis has a higher pubis joint (PS), his PS is tilted upwards when he is sitting on his seatbone in a level posture, as on a two-legged chair with his spinal column vertical to the floor, and does not touch the saddle.
While sitting in the saddle, when a woman's backbone is vertical to the floor, her PS is much deeper and nearer to the saddle and can touch (like the third foot of a tripod) and grate. The pelvic inclination is also influenced by the saddle style and the saddle equilibrium.
Relationship between the length of the thigh and the length of the lower part of the thigh determine the length and/or location of the stapes. This is why many females need longer stirrups to make sure their legs are in the right place. The right lobe placement takes the feminine body into account in the saddle style.
It is a different way of articulating a woman's hips at the hips than a man's and causes her feet to tilt outwards in a natural way. With a very flat valve, your knees may come too near the front of the valve; when moving, the foot actually passes over the valve.
