I have a Haflinger mare with a back like a spermwhale and decided for flex tree for that reason. But I haven't tried out the saddle yet.
However, I can pass on the advice of a friend of mine who also mounts Haffies and recommended very warmly to use a breast collar 'cause with those round curves the saddle can more easily slip sideways. She's found herself upside down under the horse once, ahem. She's a saddler so I think her advice should be good! :)
