    Well, if you ever get over to Little Rock, AR, You're welcome to try out my treeless saddle. I ride in a Bob Marshall endurance model and LOVE it! It's definitely not a glorified bareback pad . It's an 18", which is equivalent to a 17" western.

    BMSS saddles can be made up to 20", but you won't find any used larger than an 18.5". I bought mine used, and it was a HUNT for one I liked. I still ended up paying $1,000 for it, lol. Bob Marshall is one of the only quality brands that has "plus sizes". Black Forest has a "Size 3" that fits like a 17-17.5" western. Rebecca Soft Saddles can be made in any size (they hand make each one), but there's a 6-8 month wait on hers right now... Torsion also goes bigger (to 17-18" western), but they're hard to find in the USA anymore (no US Distributor any longe).

    Those cheapy treeless saddles you see on eBay for $79-300 are NOT worth buying. I have seen some of those first hand, and they c.r.a.p! You're better off going bareback than buying one .

    Careful Arky - I just may take you up on that! My husband has family in Little Rock and Pine Bluff - Camden, too. Since I live right off of I-40 here in Oklahoma, Little Rock is not a bad drive!

    I wholeheartedly support the Aussie saddle. I bought one last year and will never go back to western. It is sooo comfy, just make sure you get an authentic one as some can be poorly made.

    Here is a good site. My friend got her Aussie there (one of 4 she has) lol

    Any time!

    Do you belong to any of the "big girl" Yahoo groups? There are a lot of supportive ladies and good information there. If not, PM me and I'll send you the links.
