Question on flextree saddles

Are flextree saddles only available in Western style? I am slightly suspicious that my treeless saddle is disagreeing with my horse, but he definitely hates treed saddles so I was thinking about flextree saddles.

So...does anyone know if they come in a more English-style seat? It doesn't have to be a traditional English saddle in all ways, but as close to one as possible would be nice.

(If it matters, we're training for endurance/competitive trail. I dislike the bulk of Western saddles.)

Nice, lightwieght round skirted barrel racing saddles are great :) They don't have the "bulk" of a typical western saddle, and are designed for a closer contact.

I found these guys a while ago... they look... interesting. There's a couple treeless...

Those are $2500!

A barrel racing saddle still has the bulk that I don't like -- the weight, all that leather, and the horn.

Thanks though!

There's one that's around $1500! (the 3rd from the top) Which really isn't that bad. I'm sure you could even go on a hunt and find some of those saddles used for a decent price. They look pretty well made and comfy.

I think my english saddle has a flex-type tree, but don't trust me on that.

What kinda horse ? Contact down under saddlery and look at either a Kimberly trail master, or a Kimberly superior Kimberley Series Aussie Saddles
They have trees but sending in pictures of your horse, wither tracings, heart girth measurements and your measurements will get you a pretty good lighter weight secure trail saddle. That's kinda englishy, without out all the bulk of western rigs.
They have trees but I don't get the , "my horse doesnt like trees" get a tree that fits tell him to suck it up buttercup.
