What kind of saddle do you use for jumping, and does it affect your position?
Prestige. Yes it affects my position a lot !
I personally have a Pessoa and a Stubben but my favorite is a Black Country to jump it 😁
Plus they aren't as expensive as some of the other brands on th market
I use an Eric Thomas Lugano it's a GP saddle but is slightly more for jumping. It is amazing and so comfortable! Great for dressage to! Does not affect my position at all and is very light!

Knees aren’t hanging off the saddle! Sooo comfy also!
I use voltair
I have an Antares, and I love it! The leather is the softest and also most durable I have found. I prefer a forward flap, it makes jumping more comfortable for you and the horse. It allows for the correct position and stirrup length. While Antares saddles are expensive even used, they are definitely worth the money. They last a long time!
I use an equipro jumping saddle! and yes. I prefer the more forward cut style compared to a GP. It makes it easier to sit out of the saddle when needed and places your leg in a better position for jumping
