I don't fit in a 15".... I have already purchased a treeless and that's what I'm sticking to because it does not apply pressure past the anti-clinal vertebrea unlike every other saddle I've tried. In order to fit him in a treed saddle I would have to sit in a child's saddle...He is also not just a 'pony'...he is shaped just like draft, wide, flat backed. Also something that is difficult to fit with a treed saddle.

With correct leg position and good length of stirrups I can sit in a 15" Wintec. If you are set on treeless why did you ask what others use on their haflingers?

Can we see a photo of your haflinger's back?

Cute Haflinger Clava. I see you have a half pad under your wintec, I was thinking of getting one, do you find it helps? Pmaehj - I am currently using a Toulouse close contact. We do low level jumping, dressage, trails.... I have the genesis and crank it fully open to the widest position. Do you find the treeless slips? Like when mounting? I would ask a professional, but haflingers have alot of muscle on thier back, having a saddle go a little over may not be so bad as on another type horse.

Thank you.

I only had the half pad on as she had lost a little weight and I hadn't changed the gullet to a narrower one. I find padding up with a wider gullet helps with muscle development and she seems happy with it. I'm currently using a narrower gullet and no half pad

I find treeless saddle designs don't seemed to be designed for short backed ponies, there us a real danger that the bigger rider will end upsiting too far back on their loins.

I like treeless saddles in principle, but I do agree that without some structure under their bum, big boned riders on smallish horses tend to gradually bump back until they sit almost on the horse rump, which frankly gives me the heebie-jeebies. Or maybe I was always stuck with ridiculous riding partners. I got a flex tree saddle for my haffy, and I am happy so far, it fits very well. But I am the most sedate of all slow plodding sunday riders, so my opinion hardly counts.
