Barefoot Saddles

I am interested in buying a barefoot saddle within the next year. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about them and if the are worth the money. I mainly trail ride and they seem like they would be good for that type of riding. Thanks!

Subbing just because I've never heard of a barefoot saddle and I'm interested in learning!

I did a quick google search and they look like a mix between bareback saddles and australian saddles... https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...DYKdgQenn8SgDw

Ok what they are is a treeless saddle, they are supposed to be really comfortable for you and for the horse. Thay give the horse more freedom of movement then a traditional saddle. They are pretty pricey that's why I want to get some advice before I pay for one. They come in many different styles(english and western)

Oh I've heard of treeless saddles before, and it seems like there are a group of people ALL for them and another group TOTALLY against them LOL! I'm not all that educated on them, but I would think that horses built to be ridden comfortably bareback would probably be fine with these, but horses who are very sensitive on their backs may not like this too much?

I just went to the site...I really liked the Atlanta one under Western...And it wasn't too terrible in price. But then I played around and created my own...OUCH!!!

Yeah they can get pricey for sure!! I liked the arizona too and I also liked the cheyanne under english. There are other brnds out there but these seem to be the most well known and the most reasonable!
