What do you think of this saddle?

What do you think of this saddle?

Light trail ridding only, maybe 10-15 hours a week.

Thanks!!

It's gorgeous! I'm not familiar with the brand, but it looks amazing. I'm not real experienced with treeless saddles, though

I like the look of it too, but more-so I like the look of the underside. It looks like it has good spine clearance (something I haven't seen much of within my budget) and would be really comfortable for my (very hard to fit) horse.

This was the only review I could find for it as well: Sydney Saddleworks Treeless Western Saddle Trail Saddles Reviews @ Horse Tack Review

Would love to hear from someone who has ridden in one.

Looks like a super nice saddle. The fenders look REALLY long though.

Yeah... I will have to swich them out, or punch some extra holes for sure. I have a saddle that matches this ones color and tooling pretty well that I could swap fenders with.

It looks OK but if it is on ebay I would be careful. You can not sit in it and check if it is the right size, or internal damage and comfortable. Too late when you have bought it.

If you are only looking for light trail riding I would try an Australian style saddle. They are much more comfortable for horse and rider.

You may be better off punching holes or having the fenders cut down for you. Fenders from a traditional saddle are made to go around a tree which could present a problem on a treeless saddle.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
