Seat Reducers & Rider Comfort

One of the great features of Ghost saddles is that since the seat is removable, it's possible to change the shape and size of the seat for the rider. Ghost makes a nice velcro wedge to reduce the seat about 1/2" - 3/4" of an inch. It's cushy as well. I also have some homemade wool felt pieces I make that can do the job as well as have addition features for growing/changing riders. They're two pieces, one 1/2", one 1/4" that can be used together or separately for 1/4" incremental changes. Great for people who change weight through the year or growing kids or also people who share saddles.

If you're between seat sizes, using seat reducers, pommel bolster, and a seat saver can all have an effect and the seat reducers and bolster also have a small effect on creating a deeper seat - see the pic with the felt reducers.

Ghost seat reducer

Velcro wedge to reduce seat size about 2cm (1/2-3/4"). It has a bit of cushion as well. To install, carefully pull the seat forward over the cantle. Don't go too far because there are velcro tabs at the bottom of the seat. Position the seat reducer as desired and press the seat back into place. You may need to lean across the back of the seat to push it down far enough for the velcro logo on the cantle to grab.

Felt seat reducers

For those who want a cheaper option or more ability to customize, I've made some less polished seat reducers from wool felt. And here's a hint - if you have similar material laying around, you can make your own or even do other customizations to the fit of your saddle.
These are made from 1/4" thick each and can be used with 1-3 (maybe 4 if you adjust the position of your seat back on the base). Typical use is 2-3 for ~1/2" to 3/4" smaller seat

Seat cushion

This velcro lined seat cushion goes under the seat of the Ghost saddle to provide a little extra cushion for those with sensitive seat bones. It can also narrow the twist a little and provide extra hip support.
Note - the seat cushion will reduce seat depth
