Flex-tree saddles?

I'm looking into getting a new saddle soon. My synthetic Abetta has about seen it's last ride. Haha! =] Anyway, I'm looking at horsesaddleshop.com, because I've heard nothing but GOOD about that website, delivery, customer service, etc. After searching for a good two or three hours on that site I think I've narrowed my search way down to this saddle:

http://www.horsesaddleshop.com/dakot...ailsaddle.html

What do you think about it? It's got a flex-tree...obviously, it flexes, but other than that what does it do? Are they usually more comfortable for the horse? My guy is a wide, stocky, "bulldog like" Quarter Pony, so I'm sure FQHB will be fine on him. I e-mailed the company and they said the gullet is 7".

Another thing...has anyone had any personal experience with Dakota saddles?

Thanks!

Flex-tree is good if you have low-withered / wide back horse. It fits them much better. I couldn't use it on either of mine, because they have pronounced withers (and narrow back for one of them).

Thanks! Snip does have really low withers...I'd say he's almost mutton withered, but not quite. I think I am getting this saddle. I probably won't order it for another week or so just incase I find something else!

I heard good things about Dakota, but never tried one myself. TexTan makes nice flex-tree, but it's more expensive. In any case - good luck on finding one!

I have a Dover and Colorado Sadllery Flex Tree saddle. Love them and will not use anything else. (Possibly TREE LESS but that's it!)
