Best Brand of Treeless Saddles?

I have four horses of my own, but I am also training one so I want one saddle that I can use on all of them instead of having a million different saddles. I do barrel racing, so its going to have to be a barrel saddle. I've seen a few nice saddles but they are way out of my price range, which is 600 - 700 dollars. I know its not much but that's all I can afford at the moment.

Thankss in advance.

It's something you need almost like air or water. ♥

You won't get a good treeless barrel saddle for your budget. The only ones worth a lick are the genuine original Bob Marshall Sports Saddles. They start at $1000...you *might* be able to find a used one, but I doubt it, as people don't tend to part with them. Sports Saddle, Inc. :: Basic Barrel Racer

Yeah that's what I found out when I first started my search. LOL.

Well thank you, I was afraid I couldn't find one with my budget. :/

I found this one that is marked down from 1200 to 600; what do you think of this one? I know its not eye pleasing but does it look sturdy/well made?

Doesn't even have a name brand, and I doubt it ever sold for $1200. Why treeless, anyway?

Join barrel racing tack swap on FB, sometimes you'll see a Bob Marshall on there. I got both of mine for around $700, but I waited nearly a year to find the second, and I certainly didn't hesitate when I heard about it.

Also, you don't want Bob Marshall by Circle Y.

Problem is not all treeless saddles necessarily fit the same, either.

Also, I agree with Bubba - in western, anything other than a BM is a waste of money.

I've been looking on there since March and there hasn't been anything. :/
Hopefully there is a treeless saddle under my tree this Christmas. LOL.
