Treeless Saddle
I was wondering if anyone has a treeless saddle, and how they like it? My horse rhiszo has a long back and gets hurt easily and its next to impossible to find the right fitting saddle. He almost has a tb build to him but qh like as well tried full qh bars semi, so I was looking into the treeless saddles and heard a lot of good things about them, provided with regular padding. Any advice is really helpful. Thank you so much, ps I know about rounding their back to strengthen it, but I think it leads back to the saddle because he doesn't quite get his feet under him like he should.
Thank you

Padrona on this forum is the expert on treeless saddles. Find her and PM her for great advice.

Be prepared to spend alot on a pad. |It is very important to the stability of the saddle.

She is on page 10 of this post. She posts a nice picture of her mare with a treeless saddle
Look it up and PM her. A nice knowledgable lady

I ride in treeless saddles and I love them! They are so comfortable.
They are sensation brand i think. It was hard to get used to them at first, it was kind of weird feeling but great as I do long 3 hour trail rides (or longer) all the time

The lady I bought my gelding from has a treeless saddle and LOVED it....and so did her cats, lol. You say he has a TB build does that mean that he has high withers? If thats true, then getting a build up pad might solve your problems. I have a TB with a QH barred barrel, but his withers are so high and narrow they fit right into the pommel of my western saddle. I rode him in one of those build up pads and it was so much more comfortable. I tried looking at his pictures to see, but couldn't make anything out.
