I looked at the site and the user feedback, I am quite shocked that those things got good feedback, they may look nice, but I cannot possibly believe any Saddle at that price is any good and would last more than 6 months.

I know several people that own Brand Name Treeless Saddle and all the good ones are 800.00 to 1,200.00.

You get what you pay for - saddles like this often come crooked, wrinkled, or in general - crappy :) better to get a brand name that's used if you're looking to save money! Even better, one made in North America, not Indian made!

I was more curious about how they rode (a treeless western) and not necessarily regarding the brand name or lack there of. Looks alot like an english saddle and wanted to know if they road like one..or was it very similiar to riding in a regular western saddle.

Looks more like a fancy bareback pad.

I have never ridden one but the one thing that worries me about all treeless saddles is how much security do they really offer? If the horse spooks and jumps sideways will it stay in the middle of them or slide off to the side. With there being no tree, there is only a limited area where the cinch is hooked to and therefore you can't tighten it very much and have it stay comfortable for the horse and that increases the risk of sliding around. Eh, I'm not sure that I like the idea of them.
