Saddle seat tack is different from other English riding equipment. The saddles are very flat and have a cut back head or pommel. This cutback is usually 4 inches. This allows for the higher withers and the elevated headset. Saddles are placed farther back to allow for the higher motion in the front end. Lane Fox or Cut Back saddles are generally 4 inches larger than standard jumping saddles. Lane Fox saddles typically start at 19 inches and go to 22 inches in size. The proper riding position is the balanced seat position. In this position the rider has long stirrup leathers which creates the classical position in which the riders legs are balanced under the rider while not sitting too far back on the horses loins which allows the horse to work off their hind quarters.
