Yeah and the closest one is about 7 hours away in virginia! When I get to where I am able to buy one I am going to make a trip up there.

Eww...ouch! Well, I had found a lovely Aussie saddle but it is too narrow for my girls shoulders so I have been searching and think I found a nice replacement. Have you heard of Kimberly saddles?

You might try a saddle maker. Visit www.hfguestranch.com and follow the link on saddle making. He is very good.

No I havent heard of those saddles, I will have to look into them. I have also heard fabtron makes a great ladies pleasure saddle. I have a trainer in my area that swears by fabtron!

Do you have a website or should I just google?

If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.

I do have a barefoot saddle :) I got my used for $425
My horse is a bit difficult to fit so I researched and fell in love with the barefoot brand. I absolutely love the saddle and so does my horse! It doesn't slip in slide. You have to have decent balance though. I do recommend a breast collar is your horse doesn't have much for withers :P

I use a HAF pad. You have to get special saddle pads for the treeless so it can create the tree. My horse has never had a sore back from the saddle. I highly recommend treeless saddles. They are amazing and you can defiently feel the natural movement of their body. It's great for long distance riding. I also have treed saddles but for trail riding I use my treeless :)

I have a Barefoot Atlanta and love it. I haven't had problems with it slipping. I haven't had it on my horse that has no withers though. Only my average withered Gelding and it didn't slip or roll as some others have found it to. I purchased the pad with the saddle. I did demo the saddle before buying it. It was a demo saddle so I didn't pay full price.
