I can't say about other treeless but the Rebecca is much more structured than the cheap one we tried. The cheap one you could pick up and it did not hold shape and flopped more like a thick bareback pad. You can pick up the Rebecca and it holds it shape. Its not that the padding is thick, but much firmer and structured. It still moves with the horse better than a treed saddle, but the firmness still helps distribute weight much better and leave spinal clearance. I always have very nice even sweat spots with the Rebecca and have used it on everything from a haflinger and draft cross to a TB and they all ride well in it.
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
