need answers re treeless

The underside of the Torsion is neoprene with a waffled texture. Does this go directly on the horse for better grip or does one use additional padding? The pad that is here is synthetic fleece which is slippery. It seems at cross purposes. I can instead send along a Tacky Too pad for additional padding as it too is waffled neoprene.

A torsion saddle is meant to be used with a saddle pad.

Thanks, but which pad would be best, the fleecy or the Tacky Too? I am selling this for another and I want to be sure the interested buyer gets what works best.

I haven't tired either personally. I would offer the saddle without a pad and offer a choice of either for an additional price. Treeless people can be particular about pads and you don't want to turn off someone from buying if they already have a pad setup they like.

My impression is that the gal who wants to buy it isn't well versed in treeless so that makes two of us. The fleece came with it. The TT I don't need and could use the fleece, but I want to give her the right one. I'd read the TT would be better. If she were buying a treed saddle, that's right up my alley. I've gotten a lot of saddle work by word of mouth from happy customers.

Hm. Best thing to do IMO is see if you can get pictures of her horses back and post those along with the pad options on the treeless group. I think I sent you the address before?

I have no first hand experience with treeless saddles; however, from perusing eBay I see pads specifically made for treeless saddles, a name I recall is skito. Maybe an eBay search for treeless saddle pads would turn up some info.

Right. It should definitely be a pad for a treeless saddle so if neither of those are meant for treeless saddles, she shouldn't get either.

The Torsion is being sold as a complete set as it is lightly used. It was advertised with the fleece. It was when I began to closely look at the set up that I realized the fleece pad may be at cross purposes. Since my Tacky Too doesn't fit my walker I was willing to swap out the fleece for the TT so there'd be a grippy side next to the horse. She seems fine with the TT but I want to be sure she gets the pad that works best.
