I tried one used and it was very, very comfortable. However from what I was told 1) you need a special pad, 2) you have to be a good rider with good seat, and 3) they are not great if horse bucks (may cause accident lol!). My horse can throw the buck when she feels like it, so I decided not to get that used one. :(

These are all treeless I'm assuming? I have a Bob Marshall treeless barrel saddle. You do need a special pad (to do the work of the tree). But I love mine, really comfy. More importantly Soda loves it. I rode him in quite a few other saddles before buying this one and the attitude change was noticeable. Also, its nice because you can use it on horses with different body types with no problem. I put it on my WIDE fat TWH mare and it was good for her too.

No, no, they do have stirrups. And girth. But you have to buy those separately. They are not cheap saddles either.

I could see where the girth would go, but wasn't sure if there were stirrups or not...
I'd like to have one to trail ride in..

I hear that they are pretty cool. Some brands don't require a pad (i know free form saddles don't, in some cases. ) I really want one, im OK with my wintec but its kinda uncomfortable on long rides. :\

They look sooo comfortable. Maybe ill sell my wintec and get one of these? Hmm...

I think my butt squealed! Oh, nope. That wasn't a squeal (j/k)

Nice looking saddles though!
