Does anyone know if the Barefoot treeless saddles would be good for heavier riders? 150 - 190lbs?
I have a draft cross mare, who is great for our family and has no issues with the heavier riders, but her bigger size has been a nightmare for finding a proper fitting saddle.
To date, I have taken her to a highly recommended saddle fitter twice in the last year. Each time we purchased her a new saddle that fit wonderfully. The problem is her muscle built changed quite a bit several months after the first saddle purchase. The second time was the winter/summer weight flux. Nothing drastic, but enough to cause more issues with saddle fit.
I keep hearing that the right treeless saddle and correct corresponding pad will solve these saddle fit problems. Can any one chime in with some helpful info here?
