Treeless western saddles?

The gal who keeps Toby for me keeps urging me to get a treeless saddle. Does anyone have one? How do you like them?

I have one! I love it! It makes you feel more connected with the horse and it fits most horses, I just throw it up on Dozer and it fits him fine(Dozer is my big draft), I use to put it on Tater(an appy) and it fit him as well. I think you should try it!

Thank you. There is a horse expo in a couple of weeks nearby. Hopefully someone will have one I can sit in.

If you want one, get a QUALITY one. The crap ones stretch out and can hurt your horse's back.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Are the Bob Marshall ones quality? I think that's the type that the lady who keeps Toby for me has. I forgot to look today when I was out there.

I have a Bob Marshall and LOVE it! Very comfy, great quality.

Other good brands that have western models include Ansur, Freeform, Sensation, Barefoot, and Black Forest. The last two are the most affordable. I have an English version of the Black Forest and it's nice quality for the price.

Stay AWAY from Hilason, Sydney Saddleworks, Maya, and any no-name or cheap eBay brand.

Just keep in mind that with any treeless saddle you will need to get a substantial saddle pad. I use a Skito Saddle pad with mine, the full treeless version. Skito pads are one of the most popular for treeless saddles. Other popular pads include Equipedic, Haf, Saddle Right, and Supracor.
