But if you read my reply, more than what you quoted, you'd see that that is not true.
You need a GOOD treeless saddle, preferably one with real panels under it, and that fits. It won't slide more than any other saddle.
If you ride a bad treeless saddle, as I actually concider most of them, they'll slip easily. And won't even out the pressure.
I know this pretty well, I shattered my wrist on my first attempt with a treeless saddle, it was a bad one and it slipped, and I have been very careful abourt saddles ever since. The espaniola I have now (there's pictures in my ''barn'') is as safe as any saddle. It doesn't slip even when I forget the girth and the horse spooks. And I have definetly a bad balance.
Don't argue with me on this point, unless you have tried different types of treeless yourself.
Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.
