I am aware this is an old thread, but was wondering if you ever got your treeless saddle? If so, can you tell us about how you like or dislike it?

I ordered from Black Forest and mine should be here on Friday. Hopefully my hafie and I will like it.

Be sure to ride with a long stirrup or the weight of your legs can cause the horse to get a sore back. There is no tree to distribute the weight.

I do not know the horse lingo, could you tell me what long stirrup means? Thank you.

Been out of here for a while. Apologize. I have been using my vintage Sharon Saare endurance saddle with Mariah so far. It is wide and seems to fit but I have not put any miles on her yet. I am riding bitless and shoeless and want to go treeless as well. How is everyone doing?
Ride Happy!

The Old Dominion endurance ride is in Virginia. Been around for a while. Very tough from what I hear. The Tevis is old ride in the west. I don't aspire to canyon-mountains but would be interested in the Dominion. There is also the Biltmore in North Carolina. Also very tough mountains...I am a flat lander and rolling hills so either would take some getting used to for me and horses.
