    Saddle pops while riding

    I just recently bought a saddle sight unseen. I checked the integrity of the tree, and it seemed fine. While I was riding in it tonight for the first time ( I got it on Monday) it was popping under my left thigh. It was also super squeaky for only being about two years old. I am worried the tree is broken. Thoughts?

    I would take it to a saddle maker or fitter and get it professionally checked. That doesn't sound good

    It could be the leather catching & releasing up there BUT I would also recommend having someone check it over. Squeek would not necessarily mean anything - I have had saddles in the past that squeeked for awhile, even w/a lot of baby powder put up under there & plenty of use. I had bought a used Marlene Eddleman flex saddle & the tree had become "loose" for lack of better word (UPS shipping store really messed up w/the packaging of this saddle when it was shipped to me & they had to pay for it to be repaired) & did a weird pop when I got it.

    Definitely a red flag to look into.

    Sometimes if you try and "bend" or test it yourself over your leg you can tell.
