does anyone ride in a treeless?

I'm curious as to how treeless feels to ride in versus tree'd saddles. If you ride in a western treeless or english treeless let me know what you think about them! Or if you just know something about them you should let me know what you think. 8)

Friend of mine in love with treeless. Said she'll never go back to the tree one. But (again from her words) the treeless is not for buckers.

I did research when I was looking for one and the opinion I found on web is that good tree is still better than treeless (distribute the rider weight better on back).

But from all my experience - if you wanna try something new, borrow it for couple rides if possible, because what can be great for your friend you/your horse may hate.

I've ridden in an english treeless and personally didn't like it. It was comfy but I felt rather insecure, I was riding a cob though who was like a barrel!

Treeless saddles are great

I ride in a BAREFOOT TREELESS saddle and its the best thing I have ever bought. It is really comfortable for horse and rider. My pony was really hard to fit a saddle to being really round and no real wither. Treeless fits him perfect and never moves, all treed saddles shift on his back all the time. Also he used to buck all the time but hardly ever bucks now in the treeless, he's much more comfortable. And also they are no different than any other saddle to sit in on a bucking horse. I actually think you feel more secure cause you are closer to your horse rather than up on the saddle.

Here is a website you can check out to look at the BAREFOOT TREELESS SADDLES , its an Oz site but they ship these saddles all over the world.

Enjoy !!

I have a treeless saddle also and think its the best thing since sliced bread. I find the comfort level is amazing. Also have the best fit ever in a saddle. Give one a go though if you can and decide for yourself :)
