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.
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...
