Hi everyone! I am new to this site, but not to horses! Okay, I am starting endurance with my older (around 18) Arabian gelding. He uses a medium tree, wide gullet English saddle, but I really like the idea of a treeless saddle. Another reason I want to go treeless, is I may be selling him in a few years, and the treeless saddle will hopefully work with my new horse. He is very spirited, but I have an excellent seat. I am on a fixed income, so my budget is rather small. I am torn between the barefoot cheyanne and the black forest echo. Which is better for my horse?
