saddle advice ?

My aunt has a haflinger approx. 13.3 hands. She is very wide with a short back. Her western saddle isnt fitting her properly so she is in the market for a new saddle and has expressed interest in getting a treeless saddle.

Does anyone have any saddle recommendations or has had any experience with treeless saddles? What brand is the best , most affordable, durability etc...

I have heard good things about Cashel but I am sure there are other brands that may be just as nice and affordable. I believe she is most interested in an endurance type/ style ?
Maybe someone else has owned a haflinger and has had good results with a certain saddle maker/brand?
Any input is welcomed ...thanks

Do a horseforum search for "treeless" there have been many-a-thread posted on them. I looked into treeless but since I wasn't looking to shell out a fortune on a horse who was not mine...I had considered a custom aussie saddle. The site I will post I have shared with a ton of people because I happen to think its a great deal. I wish the mare I was riding had stayed sound long enough for me to get one. For a 'seconds' aussie saddle customized with a wither tracing is $139 and there is free shipping in september. They are clearance saddles so there are a few cosmetic flaws...but if you are just looking for something to fit your horse well and be comfortable...I couldnt find a better deal.

Late to the party, but I LOVE my aussie saddle for my haffie. I don't care for a treeless for her, because her back is very flat, and the treeless doesn't provide her enough support from her rider's weight! (that would be me, of course!)
