Treeless saddles

Hey all, so I am in the market for a western saddle to fit my TB and I'm looking at saddles and I reeally like this "Just-B-Natural" saddle. It is a treeless saddle, and I'm just wondering what everyone's opinions and experiences are with them, especially with Thoroughbreds. Its not like a bareback pad or like the Cashel softsaddle, it pretty much looks like the real thing except there are no bars.

I also like the look of the Sheridan Trail saddle by Circle Y, and their cordura barrel saddle as well. Any opinions on those would also be appreciated!

I have never used them but my husband rode in them in the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming and he hated them. No matter how tight you had the cinch the saddle never stayed put. he took pics just to prove it. He couldn't even get the saddle latigo under the cinch and it still rolled all over the place. Not good for horses with really "rolly" skin either. But like I said I've never ridden in one to know. :) Happy Shopping!

Take a look at the Black Forest treeless. Galloping Grape Treeless Saddles, New Treeless saddles, Used treeless saddles
Treeless saddles aren't for every horse, but if your horse could use a treeless, you'd never go back to treed. They are very comfortable for both horse and rider.

See now those are exactly what I don't want--they look very flimsy and more like a bareback pad than a saddle.

Without having access to one, how would I be able to tell if my TB would like a treeless or not? By whether or not he likes bareback?

Contact a distributor for the saddle you like and see if they have a trial period....

They do, but I have to pay the full price of the saddle plus a trial fee and shipping both ways. The saddle itself is $1600.... :/
